They make up really quick. I did both of them in one day and I have to chase my 2 year old around the house. I was able to create a panda one for a friend this morning. It is rather addictive because it is so easy.

Thanks for the pattern. These are great ideas for the baby Easter baskets. It's so hard to find something good for the babies that's small enough to fit in the basket.

When I was making a rattle for a baby doll at Christmas, i got a small container from the gum machines at the mall. I put some beans in it, closed it back up and covered it with yarn.

I only mention this here because I did see those eggs at Michael's the other day and I was thinking that you could use them with beans in for a rattle. just a thought. These toys are just wayyyyyyyy toooooo cute. Love them

A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships were built for..  :think

 

When in doubt... make a hat.      And feel free to *pin* me.

I had not thought of the candy machine containers. I attempted to make shakers last year using regular easter eggs that I crochet over, but my neice and daughter were able to quickly dislodge the bottom and I could never get them back together. That is why I chose the cat toy because it was completely sealed.
