I made this tea-towel for my brother-in-laws parents who are currently visiting from Canada. I wanted to get them something small for Christmas so this is what I made.





I got the mouse picture from a free colouring book website (sorry I can't remember the site) and the baubles are drawn free-hand. I am really pleased with the way it turned out, although some people thought it was a cat not a mouse!

Thanks everyone! I think it looks like a mouse too. Maybe it was the whiskers that confused them??
