Hey Kids!  What day is it?  It's Toybox Tuesday.  Time to show off your little goodies from this week.

Here's my contribution.  It's a baby rattle.  Made from maple doll heads, dowels and rings.  All natural.  My own design.





Show us what you made.

I agree with Myrdda. I love simplicity of the rattle, pinokeeo.

My contribution this week is a little knit seahorse that I made for my partner in the sea life swap. He's about 8" long and has seashell button eyes Smiley.

Nice baby rattle! The design is so pretty, a must have for any modern baby.

And I LOVE that seahorse! Where did you find the pattern?

I too love the rattle. I am tempted to make one, but I have no need for one at this time.

Thanks! I found the pattern on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46064958/seahorse-amigurumi-plush-toy-soft). It was quite easy to whip-up because it's done in the round (mostly) and requires very little sewing/making-up.

I adore wooden baby rattles, I wish I had one for dd when she was little. That seahorse is beautiful! I like that its eyes are from seashells.


I have an idea to make for next Tuesday's Toybox Tuesday....

Thanks for all the lovely comments.

Pixieval, I'll be looking for your entry next week.

I may not be able to participate next Tuesday, as I have a craft show this weekend.  Hopefully, somebody will keep this going.
