It's Tuesday again, and here comes a new special and super cute free crochet project!
I love working with different materials - and this wooden ring make such a great addition for so many craft projects, from macramé works to toys for babies.
Today I'll be using the ring to create an adorable teething ring!
If you have worked the Bunny Safety Blanket that I shared the pattern of few weeks ago, you might recognized the sweet bunny's head!
Yes, I loved it so much that I decided to use the same design to incorporate to today's project. I simply opted for a smallest hook size and a cute pink color for the yarn.
If you want to make this cute wooden toy even more fun for your baby, add a rattle into the bunny's head!
