Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This pattern is written for folks who have had some basic sewing and embroidery experience and who are familiar with common sewing terms.

Pattern Description:

THIS LISTING IS FOR THE DIGITAL PATTERN ONLY, not a finished toy or a kit.

Make a tiny friend from scraps and take it with you wherever you go! This wee little mouse is designed to fit inside an empty Altoids tin and will slip easily into a purse or backpack. You can make it for a girl or a boy, depending on the colors you choose.

This pattern features:

- Tiny corduroy or flannel mouse
- Stuffed pillow
- Mattress
- Blanket
- Teeny teddy bear friend for the mouse

I've included lots of tips and tricks for easy construction - No need to be afraid of tiny!

Included in this original eight-page pattern are
- color sample pictures
- detailed step-by-step instructions
- clear diagrams for every step.

- Materials used to make the wee mouse are commonly available and probably in your scrap pile already! They include: corduroy OR flannel, wool or wool-blend felts, cotton ticking, stuffing and coordinating thread and floss.

- A combination of machine and some hand sewing are used. Freezer paper is also used to make construction simple and easy.

This pattern is in PDF format on 8.5 x 11 paper, so you can print it from your regular printer at home on standard paper or card stock, as many times as you need for personal use.
