I have joined together with the Red Heart Joy Creators to celebrate Christmas in July. (Which also happens to be my BIRTHDAY! Woohoo!)
We were wanting to run with the theme “joy”. What better way to celebrate a joyful Christmas in July than giving a Joyful Star Teething Ring to a fussy teething baby nearest & dearest to you!? (say that 5 times fast)
Below, you will see how to purchase the all natural teething rings. I REALLY love these! I can imagine this project selling like CRAZY at craft fairs. They will be great for baby showers and surprise gifts for babies suffering from teething pain.
I have also fallen in LOVE with the Red Heart Baby Hugs yarn. It’s soft, works up clean, and is easy on your hands. Perfect for hooking up projects for babies. This yarn would also be great for amigurumi and could possibly completely replace your “go to” medium weight yarn!
Be sure to check out the other Red Heart Joy Creators of this fun celebration. The list will be located bellow the pattern.
