Hello little mouse.
Here's an easy-to-sew little critter you can make in an afternoon. Crafted from boiled wool, felt, or fleece, your mouse can be a finger puppet that peeks out of the top of a stocking, an ornament for your tree or tablescape, or a very special package topper. Your PDF download includes the pattern you can print out on card stock and fully illustrated instructions (with how to prep boiled wool), with patterns for optional costumes and accessories. Or, if you'd prefer to get an already-printed pattern in the mail, click here.
If you're new to sewing, you'll find the instructions beginner-friendly whether you have a sewing machine or want to learn hand-stitching techniques for toymaking. Children under 10 will most likely need adult accompaniment in order to succeed unless they already have a bit of sewing experience. And if you're more experienced at sewing, you'll find lots of creative costume and accessories options for exercising your imagination. For some ideas to get you started, visit the Design-Your-Own page or our Customers' Character Gallery.
Mice are about 5 inches tall, so fit right into the 1:12 standard for dollhouses. Making a batch of little mice could be a great way to prep for the holidays this year. Make different characters and/or enlist the children in your life to design costumes for the characters. Please note: mice have small parts and are not suitable for children under 3.
