Three Brown Mice

There are no mice to be found around here. Thank goodness! The ones I found to buy are ridiculously expensive. So...

I decided to make some.



I found three wooden beads that look like mouse bodies? Some "beady" little beads for eyes. A paper punch for ears. I used three strands of black embroidery floss stiffened with glue for the tails. A flower punch made their little pink feet. So, here you have it!

One mouse perched on my finger! Three brown mice below!

I crack myself up sometimes.

Great idea Kathi! Really cute. I am now singing Three Brown Mice, in place of Three Blind Mice. Much nicer.
