A close-up shot of the leaf, stem, and pink fabric making up the body of the apple. The rustic weave of the linen is visible, as is the seam on the leaf. The apple is resting against a white linen background.
A close-up group shot of six dusty-pink fabric apple rattles. This photo shows the variety of stem shapes and the individuality of each rattle. Though they are all apple rattles, each is handmade and therefore slightly, beautifully different. The apples in the back row are resting against a white linen fabric while the middle and front rows of apples are resting against one another. Three of the green leaves face upwards, while the other three lean to the left.

A low-angled photo of the fabric apple rattles in a wooden apple box. The wood is light, unstained, and the variety of the wood grain is visible. The pink apple rattles fit into the box in rows of three. The green linen leaves and brown linen stems are provide contrast to the pink linen fabric and white linen background.

    Apple Fruit Rattle


      Entirely handmade from stem to fruit. 

      Using the finest linens and my own patterns, each and every rattle is made by my hands. It’s a labor intensive process that yields heirloom-quality pieces that can be passed down from sibling to sibling.

      You will receive one similar, though not exact to the photo since each one is unique from the others, as is the nature of handmade goods. 

      In a beautiful rustic pink, the Apple Fruit rattle brings a favorite snack to life with a gentle jingle. Exactly how I imagine an apple would sound.

      Approximately 5" x 3.5", not including leaf.

      100% natural linen and cotton fibers. Beautifully yarn-dyed.

      For best results, hand wash and air dry, however as busy parents know sometimes hand washing isn't in the cards, so a cold machine wash on your most delicate setting and an air dry should be just fine.

      Made right here in a little studio in Los Angeles.


      I used my favorite apple, the Lucy Rose, as the inspiration for this design. I remember going to the grocery store one fall and being amazed by all the new kinds of apples that had suddenly appeared. I asked the produce worker what the different apples were, and while he had no idea, I bought two of each to conduct a thorough apple bracket test to decide which of the new apples was the best. I baked one of each apple in a tart, and ate one apple raw, noting how flavors and textures changed during baking. When I cut through the Lucy Rose's, I was amazed to see a beautiful, almost pink and white tie-dyed effect the insides had, only to be outdone by the magnificent Lucy Glo, which had a bright, fuchsia interior. I had never seen a red-fleshed apple before, and it sent me down a rabbit hole of new and heritage apple varieties, as well as the small but mighty organizations, like The Lost Apple Project, that are attempting to find and catalogue ancient apples. The Lucy Rose won the raw-flavor test, while the Lucy Glo won the baking-test. Neither are heritage apples and both are made by the same big ag company, Chelan Fresh. My favorite apple critic, Pomme Queen, has some choice words about the Lucy's, which are entirely justified, and yet there's just something about your first apple that never leaves your eye. I've learned a lot about apples since my heart was taken by these pink delights, and bought my own mom a Winekist sapling which should hopefully yield some tart, red-fleshed apples, perfect for baking. It'll be a few years until it fruits but I'll be patiently waiting.
