We also officially celebrated Mother's Day with a rodent.
Mouse pattern adapted from here.
I made the head a little larger and hand-sewed it from wool felt. The crown is made from wool felt as well, and I added white pom-poms for a little extra bling.
To celebrate spring (which totally isn't here but I thought if we said we were celebrating it then Spring might take the hint) I brought up gifts for Aidan and Vanessa as well.
Kangaroo with Chucks, Aidan was most impressed and asked if I would make him and his cousin Vanessa animals too.
Aidan chose a Penguin (to go along with the crocheted one I made him earlier) and Vanessa requested a duck (to match the needle-felted one she made last month).
I was happy that they chose animals with only two feet apiece, but these birds were not so easy to make converse for. Achieving balance was no easy feat!
The duck is hand-sewn from wool felt using one of my patterns. The purple converse pattern is the same one that I used for the animals on the Game Time baby mobile.
The penguin is adapted from the book Wild & Wonderful Fleece Animals. I reduced the pattern by 75% and then changed the bottom half to create "legs" and "feet".
