My friend makes these mice and gives one a day to people during December to remind her that Christmas is about giving, too. I think it's adorable. Not only is it a good way to use up extra fabric scraps, but they'd look cute on a tree and young kids could make them easily. Basically, she cut two pieces of fabric (see the bottom pic), made slits in the "body" and added the "ears." The candy cane becomes the "tail."

It remindes me of the sugar mice given to little kids at Christmas time during the Victorian Era. These mice add a modern twist to that old tradition.

Aww... Those are adorable!  I wonder... if you could make them out of cardstock... or is that what they are?  It sounded like they were made out of fabric.  There are so many ideas for coloring paper. Ex, The bubble paper, shaving cream one... just plain painting.  You could put sparkle glue on it...  Oh so many ideas... Thanks for sharing!  I think I might have found my X-mas presents for my friends!!!

Those are cute.  Grin  My son made me one today at his day care.  They were made of felt and fit the little canes.   Cheesy
