As Quiet As........

......a mouse! long time no blog, sometimes stuff just gets in the way!
here's a little something to use up all those scraps leftover from other projects...



Here's the pattern. Cut 2 chipboard circles 4cm in diameter. One body from fabric and 2 ears from felt. Cut a circle from fabric 1cm bigger than the chipboard circle.



Sew up the centre back seam, gather the fabric circle around one chipboard piece.

.



Turn right side out and stitch a line of gathering stitches along the bottom ,stuff, when full place the other chipboard circle in the bottom and pull the gathering threads gently up, secure with a few stitches. Stitch the covered circle in place catching a piece of braid or twine in place for his tail. Sew his ears in place and add 2 black beads for his eyes.
