Yesterday I finished the turtle rattle, and now I have made a felt lady beetle version of the rattle. This was the one I was going to initially make with Charles working on the turtle, however I ended up making both.

Once again I have included a free PDF pattern to download that contains all of the directions to make one of these lady beetle rattles for yourself: Lady Beetle Rattle Pattern

As some of you know a couple of my previous arts and crafts projects that I’ve made for Addison did not have PDF patterns to download, so over the last couple of days I have been slowly trying to get up to date with all of the missing patterns.

I will soon add a section to the website where you can find them more easily. It will contain a thumbnail photo of the end result and the link to the original associated blog post. There will be a link for each free PDF pattern download that will contain a list of materials needed to make each one, the directions on how to make them and of course the pattern pieces.
