You know that feeling, you've found the perfect book for a new born and you want to crochet something that fits with the theme of the book? On the internet I found a great example of a sheep rattle, but no pattern. So I had to make one myself! No problem, but it takes some more time to make one.
There is actually a funny story behind the present. I started to search for a book, even before the baby was born. I found this book 'Joep' which is about a cute stuttering sheep and is illustrated by my cousin (link to website). The next day we found out that the newborn was born and called 'Joep'. What a coincidence!
