Total Time: 1.5 Hours

Yield: 2

Source: Seen on Pinterest but I altered their idea.

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. For the mouse, chain 2 and make a single in the 1st chain. Make another 12 in that same chain. Join and chain 1. Make 2 singles in each of the 13. Join and chain 1. Rows 3-7 make a single in the first stitch and 2 in the next stitch. Increase your count by 13 each row. When you join the last row, chain 10 and cut, pulling the tail tight and trimming. This is the tail.

  3. For the ears, make a first row twice. Leave a longer tail to tie it into the circle before you fold and sew. You can also glue them.

  5. The eyes are just a single strip between two stitches on the edge of the "head area". I showed you how to make them at the same time, but I wouldn't do it again like that. Just thread them through and tie them loosely. You are ready to sew it up.

  7. Begin at the tail, and whip stitch to just below the ears. Fill with your catnip and sew to the nose. Work in the tail. N-JOY!

  9. For the bunny, chain 3 and make a double in the first chain. Make 12 more and join. For the next row, make 2 doubles in each stitch for 26. When you join, make a chain 2 and 6 doubles and a chain 2 in the same stitch.

  13. For the tail, make a pom pom. Or you could use a pretty button, an actual cotton ball, etc. I just made one and tied it to the bunny's bottom. With a bit of black in the head for an eye, you are done. N-JOY!
