Cheryl from Sew Can Do shares a free pattern for her Little Mouse Stuffed Toy. You can make it as a softie, a pincushion, or even a cat toy. With five cats at my house, I would probably make it as a cat toy. Her mouse looks fast enough to sew up, you could even make some extras to donate to the animal shelter. Go to Sew Can Do to download the pattern. Or, if you’re buying fabric from Modern Yardage you can use the code MYLITTLEMOUSE at checkout and they’ll send the pattern as a panel on their extra wide selvedge.
