YARN The After Party 56 - Ice Cream RattleBy Joke Postma
The adorably delectable Ice Cream Rattles designed by Joke Postma have been crocheted using Scheepjes Organicon! More than just a fun little project to make between something larger, these sweet, rattling ice creams make wonderful gifts for new parents and their little ones. Both Ice Cream Rattles have been crocheted using Scheepjes Organicon in 50-gram balls. This soft yarn has been made from 100% organic cotton and is highly suited to creating a range of other items for babies and children. Inside each ice cream is a rattling device which creates a stimulating sound which can be heard when shaking the rattle. Each rattle measures 17 x 7cm.
Made from 100% organic cotton, Scheepjes Organicon is part of a global movement towards reducing resource consumption and conscious production methods. Alongside the benefits of organic farming on water quality, land fertility and energy use, organic cotton is an exceptionally soft fibre that is delicate for you and your little one's skin! This makes Scheepjes Organicon a particularly suitable yarn for creating garments, stuffed toys and accessories for babies and toddlers, as well as garments for adults with a sensitive touch.
