As I told you last weekend I was going to make a baby rattle with some cotton.
My crochet craft piece is now finished and it makes “bling bling”: it’s a baby rattle!
Easy half-way to learn how to make shapes for later build a puppet. And with just the single crochet stitch!
As you can see I couldn’t really end it well enough since I didn’t manage to make the right amount of stitches at the end of the tube and the edge looks a bit imperfect for a reason that I still don’t get.
I was thinking to cover it with a small ribbon and a crochet bow but I didn’t finally do it. It is a toy for babies and I don’t want to add more material than could be in some ways swallowed.
And here it is the pattern that I used for the baby rattle. It is easy to follow with the pictures and the good explanation in English.

Hope you can make it better and a way more asymmetrical! J
But he is funny…
Yesterday Saturday 11 April there was the first Montagsmarkt event in Zurich at the MAAG Halle of Zurich, called “the Garage Sales”.
We went there to check out and found a cute vintage-like tankini to wear during the summer (to cover a bit my belly which is growing so fast!). I mostly saw vintage cloths but also some handmade items. It was distributed in two huge warehouse-rooms and it had also a couple of bars where we drunk a beer with our creative friend Bettina.
During the last weeks I became fan with the baby rattles that I found out in Pinterest. They are so cute and for whom doesn’t feel ready to make a puppet (LIKE ME) it is an easy way to start to make animal shapes. I wanted to give it a try.
Here is my job in progress…
