A pretzel rattle

Occasionally I feel a fairly strong need to incorporate some German tradition into our day. Most often this simply ends up in having German food for supper (Bratwurst, Spätzle, …). For this years’ October Fest I made a rattle for Yannick.


I created this pattern and used the same brown micro fleece as for this little guy and stitched on some kiddo-proof salt (French knots). I even found a small enough rattle insert that I explanted from a small bunny softie that came with my Easter chocolats (sorry Oma…) and that’s now sitting in the thickest section of the pretzel. And because the shape of the pretzel provides such good grip and is so great to pull on, I already had to repair the poor thing twice 😉
