I had to show off this sweet little mouse and her teeny teddy that I made for my granddaughter, Taylor! I purchased the pattern from Larissa at the Mmmcrafts blog. She has an Etsy shop here where she has some really cute patterns for sale, and on her blog you will find some free patterns! I had so much fun making this little mouse and can't wait to hear how Taylor likes it! The little mouse and her teddy fit inside a Altoids Mint tin. The pattern was very easy to follow and had plenty of written and picture directions. The only snag I ran into was when I cut out the mattress for the mouse's bed, only to discover it was too small for my tin! Low and behold, Canadian Altoid tins are bigger than American ones! Who'da thunk!! It was easy enough to enlarge the mattress and blanket pieces though, and I made the pillow a wee bit bigger too. I also added wee whiskers to my mouse. It is so cute!! I just love it! Now I'm waiting for some other opportunity to make another one for someone! Thanks, Larissa, for this sweet pattern!
