Teddy bear rattle – free crochet pattern

I will become an aunt soon 😊 I can’t wait so I started crocheting small gifts for my little nephew. The teddy bear rattle was the first one. The rattling filling of the teddy bear’s head came from an old toy that was no longer usable. I hesitated whether my bear would have a bow tie or a ruffled collar. Our readers helped me decide filling a survey on our fanpage <3
