Well, actually, it was last Tuesday, but I'm just getting around to posting about it. Our little boy has turned 2, I can't believe it! To celebrate the occassion, I made him a mouse from a wool skirt that I found at Goodwill. I used the pattern in Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts. The pattern was pretty straight forward, although a few steps were skipped over. I'm hoping that the more complex patterns don't skip steps!
I found a vial of cat nip that came with a cat toy that we got for Flick when he was a kitten and didn't need nip to act like a total crazy, so I filled a sachet with nip and stuffed it into the mouse before I filled it with batting. He's a little misshapen, but Flick LOVES him, especially the tail, which he uses to throw the mouse up in the air while playing with him.
