Crochet Teddy Rattle

A short while ago I completed another small person related product purely because I love the pattern; it's adorable! I purchased the pattern from One and Two Company via Etsy. I love her patterns, they are so easy to follow and I can usually make them fairly quickly (for me anyway).

I've used Drops Paris yarn for the first time as a change from Rico Creative Cotton Aran mainly because I wanted to see what the difference was - there isn't much but I think Drops have a few variations in colours and I think you get slightly less meters/yarn per 50g than Rico (Drops Paris is 75m per 50g and Rico is 85m). I went for Drops Paris in Dark Beige, Off White and Black with Rico Creative Cotton Aran in Light Blue.

I then filled with toy stuffing and a rattle noise maker in the head part before sewing it all together.

I'm really pleased with the outcome, however I think it might be on the large size for a newborn to hold or play with so I have bought some DK cotton (this was Aran cotton) and will use a smaller hook to try and downsize it slightly.
