Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I really liked making it, but I think I will hold off on trying another one Smiley But I do have an idea for an animal book in a similar style.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / All About Christmas Book on: January 08, 2011 03:00:45 AM
I made this book for my niece, it was her first Christmas this year!
I started out with an idea to make a multi-textured, bright, and soft book for her... I then decided on Christmas themed because all of the Christmas fabric was on sale at my craft shop Tongue
I designed it myself, and did not have any patterns, I just sort of made it up as I went along (I did you some clip art for inspiration, the reindeer for one).
Each page has at least a few different textures, some have things you can pull at, jingle, crinkle, and of course soft fluffy things. Then I put thin batting and plain green as the other part of the pages.
This took sooooo much longer than I planned, but it was worth it.
The final product was about 8x11 and 4 inches thick Smiley
Hope you like it.

Thanks! I plan to make more, and if I do, I will post the patterns. I didn't think about writing the pattern for Mr. Greedy - there was so much trial and error along the way.

Thanks! The stem is a bit wonky, but the flower turned out nicely, and I figure once its on the baby's head, the stem's wonkiness won't be noticeable.

Thanks for the clarification on hide the mouse. If you want the pattern, its not mine (I thought the link was on my original post, but its not), its from the lion brand website (you have to register)

Thanks guys! I totally see the "look-alikes" that you mentioned. I wish I would have gotten a side view photo...when you see his belly, its totally Mr. Greedy Smiley

I made this for my BF's brother for his birthday.
I am super proud of it because it was my first project that was completely my own pattern. I usually modify patterns, but for this guy I had to make it all up.
Now, everyone wants one- but a different Mr. Men or Little Miss of course. So I guess I know what my next few projects will be.
His eyes and mouth were the only hard bit- the pinky/purple yearn was really tough to stitch through - suggestions anyone?
Comments/Constructive Critiques welcome

How Cute!! it would be perfect for kids to play hide the mouse!!
What in the world is hide the mouse??? I am intrigued! I love games that the fam or kids can play at Xmas.
My BF is English, and we introduced pass the parcel to my family a few years ago, they LOVE it!

Thanks for liking my mouse
Cute!  We must be thinking alike, I'm making some little crochet wreaths to put on my presents.  Grin
I like the idea of tying things on to individual pressies, I will have to see about that Smiley
