3 Blind Mice

I found these online and thought they were so cute!
I put them all together for the picture and and called them 3 Blind Mice ;)
The gray one I made for Wennie but while playing with it, she pulled off the bell from its tail. I found it of course and took it away (this is why Gray Mouse has a tail & no bell). And because I always make something for my kids whenever I make anything at all, I made the Green Mouse for Little "D" & the Orange Mouse for Big "D" (their tails & bells are still safely intact).
Very simple pattern, I got from the Lion Brand Web Site, I sewed the noses with pink yarn & the eyes with black yarn. I tied the tails on and attached a bell to the end of each one. They make adorable little stuffed animals for children or toys for cats & dogs!
For added safety, just leave off the bell.
For cats, simply stuff with catnip!

Amigurumi Giraffe

This is a little something I worked on last week. It's an amigurumi giraffe and pretty adorable! He's yellow with brown spots, brown horns & ears and brown hooves. I added a small muzzle of my own (not on the original pattern) and sewed his little mouth and nose to that. I also sewed his eyes with brown yarn, instead of using safety eyes as the pattern suggests, but only because I'm running low on eyes, lol.
I got the pattern from the Lion Brand web site.

Hamster Blankie

You all know how crazy we are for animals & blankies here ;) So of course we made a blankie for Big "D"s little hamster Spunky! I finally got him to stay still for the 3 seconds in a row it took to capture this pic of Spunky enjoying his new blankie.
Very small, crocheted in bright Pink with a Single Crochet stitch, using an H crochet hook.
