My oldest friend in the world just had her first baby last month.  He is the sweetest little thing!  She lives about 3 hours away from me so I only just got to meet him last weekend. 
I wanted to bring something for him and decided to make this cute rattle http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chubby-teddy-rattle
The pattern was super easy to follow but I changed things up a bit though, I used worsted weight yarn and an H hook.  I also didn't have a "rattle insert" and found out they're pretty much only sold in multiples  Undecided  I don't know when I'll ever be making another rattle and my craft area is overflowing as it is so...I had jingle bells left over from Christmas gift wrapping.  I just stuck them inside the stuffing of the head and it sounds exactly like a rattle!!



Thanks for looking!

Super cute, and your stitch work on the stripes looks extra great. Nice job switching out the rattle insert for jingle bells. I'm sure the tiny human won't know the difference and have a great time as long as it's making noise.

Thank you!  No one even believed it was jingle bells in his head because with the stuffing muting it, it pretty much sounds like a regular rattle.
