CH 25 and fasten off leaving an 8“tail.
Fold tail on inside of circle so it comes out on other side
            
Cut a piece of yarn long enough to sew top together and tie it to the tail in the middle of the loop.
         

For ears join yarn into the opposite side of tail with a sl st and ch 3, sl st into same st. tie the two ends together and do not weave in. you are going to stuff them inside (picture on next page)
                        
Fold circle in half and place st markers it top only on half of circle

Stuff mouse with scraps and catnip. Join top with the length of yarn you tied to the middle tail with a whip st. I tied a tiny sl st after sewing and thread the yarn through middle of mouse. Cut extra.



                       
Make sure to go through tail

                      
Insert hook into last ch on tail and fasten the 8“scraps of yarn. I had to do this in 2 trys.

Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to my blog! My name is Jessica and I am the Owner of JMO Creations. I specialize in handmade one of a kind crochet treasures. I have been crocheting for full time for about 2 years now. I learned as a child and didn't really pick it up. I have also been a knitter for 15+ years. I no longer knit do to arthritis but still love to dabble in it from time to time. I started this blog for my customers as well as the public as a way to share my patterns, projects and products. Everything I make is done so with love. My crochet is my art and I always love the feeling when a project is finished and it brings a smile to someones face. I will share pictures of my items when they become available as well as patterns by myself or others. I also love to see other peoples project pictures as well as stash pictures.

I am 33 and married to a wonderful man named DJ. We have 2 cats Purdy and Tipsy who are both Maine Coon cats. I have been disabled for nearly 4 years now and pass the time by making wonderful handmade crochet item. I put my love and time into every item. I love to listen to music while I crochet as it gives me insporation.

Please be patient with me as this is my very first Blog Page and I am still learning my way around.

Thank you for visiting my page. Have a great day!!!
