Mouse pincushion

In Chinese calendar, 2008 is mouse year. We send the New Year's cards which were decorated with the picture of mice.

Why not make felt mouse?

Sew the tail. You may use a cord as the tail.

Sew the back.
Sew body

Sew up the body and bottom.
Put thick paper into the body.
Stuff and close.

Sew eyes with beads. Stitch whiskers.

Glue or stitch the ears to the head.

Mickey Mouse

Felt mascot of Mickey Mouse. 9.5 centimetres.
It cannot stand.
The making process is the same as Stitch.

I sewed it. But I suspect the merit on making such thing.
It takes much time, and doesn't look so good until getting skills.
Moreover, we can buy cheaper and better goods at a Disney shop.

Its tail is a thread.
