I have been looking for fun little projects to make fore little Ernie before he gets here and I was lucky to find the cutest pattern for a crochet owl rattle on ravelry.com ... it hooked me into a very nice little blog called, A Lovely Little Life. I have visited this blog before, but totally fell in love with this new little pattern! It didn't take long to whip it up and I LOVE how my rattle turned out! I want to make more!!! Anyone having a baby out there that wants one???? ;)
Lily & Creme Cotton Yarn (blue, green, yellow, orange and white ... colors I had already)
Size 3.5mm hook
3 Jingle Bells to create Rattle Sound
Polyester Fiber Fill
The only problem with the little owl is as I was stuffing it with jingle bells (to make it rattle) the cats immediately recognized the sound ... perking up their ears and sitting at attention. I realized I was using the same bells I stuff THEIR toys with! Already I have had to hide the toy ... hopefully, they don't attack little Ernie when he is big enough to play with it!
