Littlest Mouse off my crochet hook!!
This one I did today, my granddaughter told me she lost her mouse that goes with one of her tiny dolls so I made one today because she will be over here for supper tonight and I love doing things like this for my grandkids! Who wouldn't??
I don't know what the dolls are called, they are smaller than Polly Pockets. I am hoping this little mouse will be small enough. He is only 3/4 inch long minus tail and the pets that go with these dolls are not in proportion like real life. If not she will just love it for itself!
I started with a pattern from Crochetville by KristieMN and called Little Mouse Pattern. That pattern called for ww yarn but I used crochet thread, size 30 and a size 1.25 mm crochet hook.
I did the first 7 rows by the pattern and knew I needed to start decreasing because I didn't want it much bigger so I just decreased until I could sew it up. Then I crocheted the ears but my own pattern for these was: ch. 2, 8 hdc in 2nd ch from hook and finished off. I then embroidered his eyes, mouth, nose and ears using pink and blue crochet thread.
Here is a pic of him. Note that he is sitting on a dime. I think he is adorable!
