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.
Trim the pink felt into a large oval and stick it to the front of the sweatshirt with double-sided foam tape.
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.
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.
Use face paint to add a mouse nose and whiskers, if desired.
