One of the items on my daughter’s Summer list of things to do was to buy a mouse toy for our cat. As we were looking at the mouse cat toys, I decided that I could crochet one just as cute as any of those and save $3-$4. My daughter liked the idea of us making it.

We found a feather in the yard that my daughter wanted to put on the crocheted mouse toy. I just made up a ‘pattern.’ I used cotton yarn and increased each round until I got to around 24 stitches. Then continued to work even rounds for 6 or 7 – then decreased. I added felt ears and embrodiery eyes. I added some small bells to the stuffing – so the mouse jingles. Voila! One cute little mouse.

If the cat doesn’t like it, at least my daughter does!
