I made up this little mouse from a pattern I bought from Planet Penny. I wanted to get my head around a mouse shape so that I could teach my crochet class how to dc2tog (double crochet two together) to enable them to create shaping.
He is really cute and fun to make. I just felt a bit bad when I used 'him' as a pin cushion. It seemed a bit painful. I made a smaller one which I sent in the post to my friend and then I wrote my own pattern making adaptations because the one I bought was not allowed to be used in my crochet class. He has some rice in the bottom to stop him toppling over. What are you making this week?
