This is the cutest ideas from Christine of “On My Honor” three sisters, one little blog, needle felted this darling toadstool rattle for a friend’s daughter and she is not too sure suitable for a baby. Christine questions: “I felted a little toadstool rattle for a friend’s daughter, but I’m not quite sure (and Catherine agrees) if the rattle will stand up to baby fingers and baby strength. I mean, I’ve shaken the hell out of it, but I haven’t tried to rip it to pieces or put it in my mouth (both big time baby activities). Should I try to reinforce it? Make it thicker? Or should I send it off to the middle of corn country (Iowa) and let nature take its course”? I would say no to a baby because the first stop for everything is the mouth, but would love to hear from all of you. It is a sweet toadstool and maybe the mother could use it as a baby room decoration or the mom could hold it and amuse the baby with the rattle.
