This cute mouse was a huge hit with our readers three years ago. We've simplified her and brought her back to stand in as the perfect little-sister accompaniment to this year's Jumbo Elephant.

What you'll need

  • Sheet of pink felt, 12 by 9 inches
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided foam tape
  • Gray hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants
  • Fabric glue
  • 2 pink felt circles, 5 inches in diameter
  • 2 white or gray felt circles, 9 inches in diameter
  • Duct tape
  • Thick cotton cording
  • Face paint (optional)

How to make it

  1. Trim the pink felt into a large oval and stick it to the front of the sweatshirt with double-sided foam tape.

  2. Little Miss Mouse - Step 2

    For ears, glue the pink felt circles to the centers of the white or gray felt circles. When dry, cut a pie-slice wedge from each ensemble. Then overlap and glue together the cut edges to create a conical ear. Attach the ears to the sweatshirt hood with double-sided foam tape.

  3. For a tail, duct-tape a length of thick cotton cording to the back of the sweatpants and pull the hem of the sweatshirt over the taped portion.

  4. Use face paint to add a mouse nose and whiskers, if desired.
