This is a baby gym rattle model larger with the shape of an acorn. The fabrics here can be mixed and matched to make a collection of different acorns to hang in the baby gym, making this a perfect project to get rid of your leftover fabrics.
By poking rattles into the acorns, they become even more interesting for the baby.
The acorn and oak leaves are sewn together with ribbon and the leaves are then tied around a wooden ring to be hung up in the baby gym.
The finished acorns will be about X cm high (without the wooden ring).

What does stretch percentage mean?
The term "stretch percentage" is used to indicate how much a fabric stretches.
This should not be confused with the proportion of elastane present in the fabric (eg jersey 95% cotton, 5% elastane).
Some patterns are created with a certain percentage of stretch in mind, and if your fabric has a different percentage of stretch, you may need to adjust the size.
In all By Sandramaria patterns' product descriptions, it is clearly stated if you need fabric with a certain stretch price to be able to sew the project. In that case, you see this even before you buy the pattern.
You can e.g. use this stretch guide to determine the stretch percentage of your fabric.
