Fish Baby Rattle

I’ve finished my 21 amigurumi at last! 21 amigurumi at one time. Almost every day I made it one by one. I haven’t shared this story yet, so now I’m going to tell you. I’m joining 4th amigurumi exhibition in New York. The exhibition will be held during this winter at Resobox Gallery in New York USA. I feel so excited!

This is my 2nd chance to join this exhibition. My 1st chance was about 3 years ago. It didn’t go well, but I was pretty happy got new experience at that time. I was just happy 🙂 For now, I’m hoping that luck is on my side. Really hoping that it will be going to be as perfect as I expect. I’ll talk about the detailed story in the next blog post.

This little guy I’ve made is one of the members of 21 amigurumi that I’m going to send. It’s a fish baby rattle. Once I uploaded it on my Instagram, somebody asked me about the pattern and another somebody asked me to make a custom order. I was so happy 😀

And I told her (the one who asked the pattern) that the pattern will be released soon. But it seems not that kind of soon in the real meaning haha! Of course I need some time to make the pattern. And now I can announce the pattern is already listed both on my Etsy Shop and Ravelry.

Here’s my result…

So, the story is, there are 2 things that inspiring me. First, I inspired by my childhood when I always drew this kind of tree. Even my friend or I think almost kids at my age (in my country or in my town) loved to drew this typical of tree! I didn’t know why older people (read: drawing teachers or parents) taught us to drew that kind of typical tree. Now I can say that was weird and not creative at all. Even for some other images, they taught us to did the same way in the same step and shape, so our creation looked just the same. Well… what can I say now..

Luckily, that memory sticks on my mind and gave me an idea to create this baby toy (and I don’t want to do the same way to nowadays generation, or at least to my kids to draw something that looks so typical ). I have to admit that it’s so hard to implement this typical of tree to amigurumi and create the pattern. But at the end, I did it 🙂 That’s so relieving. I really enjoyed and excited to make this tutorial. And the result was awesome. I had a positive feedback on my Instagram when I uploaded a short video of the sample pattern. It made me feel more excited to finish the pattern as soon as possible.

Second, I always curious about baby’s development. Once when my kids were just born until they reached 2 years old, sometimes I was in my mood swing. I always nervous and curious about baby’s development. I had their diaries so I could make sure that they grew well, or maybe just in case that I missed something out. The important thing that I always think is stimulation for baby is a must. Even we do a simple thing, it is important to baby’s development. Trust me 🙂

So, I can’t ignore the basic things when I designed this baby rattle. Baby needs something playful to stimulate the sensory. This baby rattle is good to stimulate the vision, hearing, and tactile. It is all-in-one toy, with adorable look as a bonus 🙂

And another bonus is, this tree baby rattle is so photogenic! I can’t stop taking their picture in a different angle. Wish I had a baby (oops!) so the baby could be a model and play with this rattle. Does anyone out there have a cute baby to hold and play with this tree baby rattle with me? 😀

Ps: Just in case you seek another baby rattle pattern I designed, you can find it here. It’s one of my best seller pattern 😀

I can’t wait to find another idea to make more baby toy..
