Mice Are Nice!
What you will need:
Pins with small round heads
Needle & thread
Create a pattern yourself based on the
Make a simple pattern like the one below and use it to cut the shapes from felt. Mark the placement for the arms and feet on the mouse body pieces. Place two mouse body pieces together and pin arms in place on the inside, then stitch by hand around the edge of the body/head leaving the bottom open.
Turn the mouse body outside-in and fill with stuffing. Pin the feet and tail to the bottom circle, then hand sew the bottom circle to the body completely closing the opening. Now you have a mouse.
Next put pins in place for the eyes. Sew a nose and whiskers in place (mouth too if you want). Use embroidery thread to make hair, cut fabric pieces to make simple clothes like a skirt, apron, vest or hat and sew them on (or use glue). You can also use colored felt for the clothing, which is easier to glue instead of sewing.
I made 5 or 6 of these mice, a whole family, but I could only find the 2 you see here. I know I also had a dashing couple dressed for the town in tuxedo & top hat, evening gown and fur. Making their clothes was the most fun & creative part for me.
I hope you've enjoyed this little project, and please let me know how it came out if you make your own mice.
