A mouse in the house…

Hey lovelies, how was your weekend? I’ve been testing out a really old plushie pattern I had stashed away. A little cutie patootie mouse called Mixie.

As always these little soft toys are designed to be quick and easy to make. You can whip them up in an afternoon. No inset seams or fiddly bits (mostly ha!).

Here’s a tip, have you ever had troubles with the fabric fraying around the stuffing openings? I fuse a narrow (say 3/8in) strip of lightweight fusible interfacing to each side of the opening (on the wrong side of the fabric). It really helps stop the fraying as well as strengthening the openings.

Time to get back to work, I positioned the arms a little high and I need to adjust the templates! Happy Monday, toni xx

  1. Quite cute! Very inspiring! I appreciate the clever tip on how to take care of those edges. How come I didn’t think of that? It’s so sensible!
