I got the idea for making these little rattles from some I saw in a shop. I really liked them and was about to buy one for a gift but, then I looked at the price tag and decided not to. I thought to myself, they can't be too difficult to make. So I took a good look at them and went home to make not just one, but three.
I made them in 3 sections starting with the stem. I then crocheted the red hat, sewed on the white dots and put a bell in it. After that I stuffed it with wool and sewed it together.
They make a very lovely gift and don't even take long to make.
