Forming a pillow rattle is relatively easy. Once you puff out the clay
by blowing your "Chi" into it and pursing it closed with your lips,
you only need two firings to have your very own rattle to adorn.
OK, so it takes a walk or two in the woods
to locate interesting sticks for handles and a few visits
to a shop like Blue Santa Beads in Media, PA
to collect appropriate beads to augment the clay ones you've made...
But it's worth the effort when you end up with fabulous rattles like these
for sharing with friends and collectors!
