|The cutest homemade baby rattles you ever done seen!|
|Little soft turtle rattle - who jingles softly when you shake him|
|I flipped the turtle onto it's back so you could see its cute and tiny little knobby legs|
|Cute and tiny tail poking out from under the "shell"|
Then when I scrolled down on Kristie's page, I noticed she had a ladybug rattle pattern as well, which was similar to the turtle (sans legs and ruffle) and she had added antennae.
|Cute little lady bug with tiny little spots|

I just sent these off to the expectant mom and she received these in the mail yesterday so hooray, now I can post about it :). If you have never done any amigurimi this would be a great beginner project to try. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting little stuffed animals for cuteness purposes alone. Also if this makes you want to LEARN crochet, everything I picked up was online by a lady named Teresa on youtube. She has fabulous step by step videos on how to crochet, teaching every stitch. Search for her courses under the title "crochet geek". She has beginning courses and intermediate. I highly recommend her. So that's it, just a tiny bit of yarn, a cute little pattern by Kristie and you've got yourself some adorable handmade baby gifts.
