I used to make these for my kitty, Sally, every Christmas.  She LOVED these.  My kitty passed away about two years ago, and I miss her every day.  I decided to make these for other people's kitties, so they can enjoy these little mice.  I re-drafted my pattern, and made some of these up using reclaimed/recycled fabric scraps.  I used embroidery floss I purchased at the thrift store.  The mice are stuffed with polyfil and they do have a fabric-wrapped core of catnip inside for extra fun!

I embroidered their faces, so there aren't any little pieces that can come off and choke the kitty.

This one was made from a vintage table cloth!
This one was made from a shirt:

And so was this one:

The tails are cotton cord, but could also be made of ribbon or rick rack.
Thanks for looking!

Sorry, but I don't understand where is the tutorial. Can you help me?
Thank you.

I'm not sure if this is the exact one, but I had it saved from a Pinterest pin with no source.  It looks similar, at least.  I bet you could make it work!
