I made this little mouse for my 2-year old nephew.  His babysitter's oldest son has a pet mouse and now that's all he talks about or wants.  He should hopefully be getting it in the mail today. I hope he likes it! It's the first thing I've crocheted that wasn't flat!

Anyway, I whipped this up in a couple of hours with some scrap yarn and using this pattern: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=369114

Changes I made to the pattern: I embroidered the eyes, instead of using buttons.  Otherwise, I think it's pretty much the same.  Next time, I would use clear thread to sew the pink part of the ears to the main part, but I didn't have any. It was a last minute project! Also, the pictures make it look like I put on the ears lopsided, but I really didn't. It's how he "sat" for the picture.  Also, he can lay down, we just thought he looked cute this way.

Hopefully, I've posted these pictures correctly. Tell me what you think!




I think he's pretty dang cute!

Thanks so much for all your kind words!  I post all the time to other people's projects, but this was the first one of mine that I posted.  How exciting.  Grin
