Ill be first I guess LOL , or else Ill forget to get mine posted!!!
I was inspired by many craftsters here who made the Nintendo PILLOW, messenger bag,blanket, tons of nintendo controller themed items. My DH and I are total gamer geeks! We are also due w/ baby #4 (ITS A GIRL!!) in october so I wanted to make my object functional as well.
SO I sat down and cut all the little felt pieces out to make a Nintendo Controller Rattle.
Its made from felt and stuffed w/ poly fill. I used a water bottle cap filled w/ hard beans thats sealed inside for the "rattle" part.
DH suggested adding the ribbon "cord" at the top so we can hook it onto a stroller or carseat for the baby.
Im so excited about my item because I know how much love and care it will get from our baby !! All the buttons are sewn on to ensure when she chews on it she wont chew anything off and swallow it.
Here it is, I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it!

First I apologize for the size of my photos for dial up users! (hugs)
