|Hey! What's this? It smells good ...|
Yarn: leftover Cascade 220 Superwash
Comments: The designer suggests that this little mouse shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to make. I doubted that, but now, after completing this one her time estimate seems pretty accurate.
The way the ears are designed makes them very simple. All the ends tuck inside so there's little finishing. I added about a teaspoon of catnip with the stuffing.
My cat seems very happy with it so I plan to make a bunch more for her, as well as some for friends and relatives with cats. It's perfect for using up small amounts of worsted - a nice little stash-busting project. And you know, I think I even have a few jingle bells to stuff inside some of them!
As always on Friday, I encourage you to check the links at Tami's Amis. I'm guessing there are scads of finished objects way more impressive than this! Maybe ... but how many will feature such a cute cat picture?!
