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!
