Abby Glassenberg from While She Naps, and author of Stuffed Animals: From Concept to Construction, shares a tutorial showing how to make a soft rattle block for a baby. Make the sides of the blocks in a variety of colors and prints and textures to engage baby’s senses. She gives some tips for further customizing the sides of the blocks, perhaps with tags of ribbon or pockets. She also gives a link to where you can get the rattle inserts (her Etsy shop). Go to While She Naps to get her tutorial.
