Here's the instructions and what Lisa said about her Christmas Mouse: Remember that Mouse Ornament I showed you a couple of weeks ago that I made when I was a kid? It was my mom's design originally so I didn't think she would mind (yes, I talk to mom everyday and got the okay) if I updated it and made a new pattern (shown above) to share with you guys.
All you need to do is to click on the pattern above and save it to your computer. After you click, the pattern will enlarge. Then, just right click and "Save Image As" to save it to your computer.
When we made them about thirty years ago (yikes!), we used felt, some craft fur, a large pom pom, some glue-on googly eyes, a little ribbon and some pipe cleaners to make the candy cane. To make mine, I made a little pattern so you can make an actual body to fill the stocking instead of just stuffing it with Polyfil to make it look "occupied." I also added some arms so the mouse could hold on to the little candy cane. I also didn't have any "googly" eyes so I just backed a pair of black glass eyes with felt but you probably wouldn't need to do that if you used a lighter fabric. It's just that the fabric that I used was so dark, the eyes basically got lost in it.
