This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! The Weirdly Popular Mice Ornaments

By Betty Crafter

Hello friends!  It’s your old pal Betty Crafter!  I’m back to share with you a recent vintage crafty project in my favorite mediums – felt and Kitschmas!    You may remember my post last year about some totally adorbs felt mice ornaments from a vintage copy of McCalls Christmas Crafts in Felt.  I continue to get pretty regular requests for copies of this pattern (which I’m happy to share – just contact me!).  Well I followed through on my plan to make one each year until I have the whole set.  This year I decided to make the mouse in a stocking.

Just like last year, the pattern was straightforward and quite enjoyable to make.  In the end, my sweet little rodent peeking out of a Christmas stocking turned out cute as a button, I must say!

A good mate for my little mouse elf, too!

Have you been working away on and Kitschmas crafts?

    Your mice are very sweet! Among my favorite childhood ornaments is a tiny mouse wearing a Santa hat and sleeping in a matchbox. I’ve always thought I would make more, and now you’ve inspired me! Felt was very popular for making Christmas stockings as well as tiny ornaments (mittens, boots, etc.) embellished with ric-rac, sequins, and beads. Such a sweet post–thanks and Merry Christmas!

    I left a request for patterns on your previous blog entry. I still cannot believe I happened to be looking for these on the same day of your post.
