Stuffed Rattlesnake Toy

Beginners can handle this simple toy sewing project, says Becky Hutcherson, who sells her rattlesnakes on at The Boomin Granny. She stuffs a single tie with poly filler, glues or whipstitches the opening shut, and then adds button eyes, a ribbon tongue and a “rattler,” usually a plastic bottle filled with beans. If you’re making the toy for a child, she says, be sure to stitch on the accents securely rather than gluing.
