I received a lovely sewing book from my mother recently with all kinds of ideas on what to sew and how to make them. I got this idea from this particular book. I did change him more than what the book said, I tilted his head a little, put on some dungarees, added buttons (oh how I love buttons!) and changed his arms and legs a little more too! The reason I call him a teddy bear mouse is because he looks a bit of both!.. a part of me wants to give him a tail and make him into a mouse because of his big ears... im still deciding on that one but perhaps that makes him more unique!
