Blasts From My Closet

Project Notes by Terry Gee


Morris the mouse by Janice Cyr. I started with Janice Cyr’s Morris the Mouse pattern which I thought was so cute.  I made a few modifications to the pattern to fit my needs and to achieve the desired look I was going for. i.e. Valentine’s Mouse.

I used a chenille stem for the tail. I cut one in half and wrapped the yarn around it then bent it into a curly Q. 
I also added the pink inside the ears and on the foot pads by repeating the pattern and stopping when it seemed a good fit inside the ear and foot.
I added the whiskers by knotting a piece of yarn and pushing it through a stitch near the top of the nose. I then unraveled the yarn and snipped at it with scissors to thin it out a bit. 
To dress up my mouse I used a bit of scrap yarn to make a headband and bow, 2 pearl beads for earrings, a pink chain and a shambala heart bead for a necklace. I sewed a jeweled key pendant I bought at AC Moore to the hands. 

I covered my Styrofoam wreath in Heartfelt Moments wired ribbon, 1/2 in wide. To secure the ribbon covering to the wreath I used straight pins and foam glue. 
To add “The key to my heart” phrase to my Styrofoam heart, I wrote the words on a ribbon with glitter glue and then pinned it to the heart after they dried. I wrote on a ribbon instead of the heart itself because I didn’t want to mess up the heart with a mistake. If you’re confident go ahead and write on the heart! I then pinned the ribbon with the words onto my heart and voila done!
