How to Sew a Baby Rattle

My daughter recently gave birth to our first grandchild, an adorable baby girl. With them in mind I decided to sew a baby rattle. I came up with a pattern for this super simple sewing project and thought to share it with you. It only involves scrap fabrics, some fiberfil and a rattle that can be inserted inside. I have created a few children’s projects for the site and if you are interested you can find them here.

What you will Need: How to Sew a Baby Rattle

Step 1: Cut the Fabrics and Ribbon

Using the pattern, cut two fabric pieces. Cut five or six pieces of ribbon to measure 4 1/2″ in length.

Step 2: Add the Ribbon

Fold the ribbon pieces in half. Place the ribbon to the right side of the top of the rattle so that the raw edges meet. Pin. Baste the ribbon to the rattle side.

Step 3: Stitch the Two Rattle Pieces Together

Place the two rattle pieces right sides together so that the ribbon pieces are in between the rattle pieces. Stitch together using a 1/4″ seam allowance leaving an opening on one side for stuffing. Turn right sides out.

Step 4: Stuff the Rattle

First, stuff the rattle about half way. Add the rattle to the center. Finish stuffing the rattle so that it is full.

Step 5: Close the Opening

Using ladder stitch, close the opening so that the stitching is invisible. Once the rattle is closed you have finished sewing your baby rattle.
