I made these sweet little mice from reclaimed fabric scraps, some rescued embroidery floss, cotton cord, catnip and polyfil.
I was inspired to make this pattern because a few years back, Santa used to make these mice for our cat, Sally, and leave them in her stocking. Sally passed away about two years ago, and we all miss her dearly. I think we miss her most during the holidays. We miss her climbing the Christmas tree, batting down the ornaments, or hiding among the presents to pounce on an innocent passer-by. Here's an old photo of Sally and me -- I was pregnant with Monkey 6 at the time!
And this photo is even older -- we were still living in Greensboro, I believe this was around 1999!
EDITED TO ADD: these mice are no longer available in my shop. I'm sorry for any inconvenience!
