The mouse takes the cheese
Or gets stuck with pins & needles
Look what I made today!
Valentine Mouse Pincushion. Instructions are here.
Changes made: Added an extra layer of "cheese" colored felt under the heart shape and practiced my blanket stitch for an extra sturdy base. Added a braided tail; 2 beady blue eyes. I stuffed him with dryer lint.
