Merry Christ-MICE!

I've done these for several years now...my kids' little friends LOVE them and I have even given them as teacher gifts. They are from Martha Stewart's Kids Magazine from Winter 2003. They don't sell MS Kids anymore (sigh) and this particular pattern isn't archived, so I am linking a copy of my pattern in Adobe (Scribbit taught me how in her post from Monday...HOORAY for Michelle!)



The pattern is already enlarged for your convenience and the dotted lines are guides for slits through which the ears and the candy cane tail go through. I used regular tacky glue for the inner ears and the pom-pom nose. You can use any color felt, but I like the traditional gray with pink ears. You can also use pom-poms for the eyes as well as for the nose, but I just used a pinhead dipped in black paint for this particular batch. They go together in a snap!

For more great ideas for the Holidays, visit Scribbit's Winter Bazaar!

There is still time to enter my first ever giveaway...

Those are so cute! I'll have to make them. My contribution was Martha inspired too. Go Martha!

Once again, you are just too cute! At a beautiful Enrichment night last night - your name was brought up among several of the sisters. We were admiring your blog work and all of your many other talents...and missing you too. :( Love the mice!

Merry Christ-mice:)

I was excited to learn how to post PDF files too! These are the only kind of mice I like.

Darling! That Martha (and Amber!) are really something! You are a wealthy of creative genius, my friend.

Glad the pdf thing helped, it took me FOREVER to track down how to do that but it was worth it, it was something I figured out how to do before Andrew did :)
