Every now and then when I'm giving a gift at a baby shower, I like to throw in a little handmade gift; plus, it gives me an excuse to make something. This colorful caterpillar made a sweet, easy-to-make toy for a little one. I seem to remember the pattern came from a copy of the magazine, Country Woman, a few years ago. Since I don't know who submitted the pattern, I can't give credit where credit is due.
The sections are fastened together with Velcro and therefore allows the child to learn to take them apart and put them back together. Also, if you notice, one section's side matches another section's side; another game of learning to match colors.
