practice mouse. I am making an entire mouse
family and they will also get their own house too! Update! I made 2 more mice right here
For this mouse I used the body and clothing patterns from the book and I needle felted the head, limbs and tail. I wish I had slightly different felt colors but I am still happy. I absolutely adore the suit and vest! I will most likely add a pocket watch but first I want to make the other mice and then will play around with fun details.
I also found a great alternative for the eyes. Never, ever do this for any stuffy that will be given to a child but for those using them as props in dioramas and for the stuffy that will be on display only try stick pins!

Recycle stick pins for eyes. It gives real meaning to "I'd rather stick pins in my eyes". Yes I would, said the mouse!
Thanks for looking and now I'm off to start on mouse number three!
