Handmade Monday: Crocheted Mouse

Thank you so much for stopping by my brand new blog.  I hope you pop back sometime to see what other lovely, crafty content I've got lined up for you.

I've been enjoying Handmade Monday from afar for sometime now and am really glad to be involved in such a friendly link party.

I've also been so excited about introducing you to this little one...





'Mousey' was made using this amazing pattern from Lulu Loves.  The pattern's been available for a while now but it is great.  As Em's post mentions, there are rather a lot of crocheted mouse patterns scurrying around the internet, but this pattern makes an awfully cute wee size.


I decided to stuff mousy with bright pink and blue wool to give it a wee bit of personality.  I also sewed on tiny circles of fabric to the ears. Now all it needs is a name: I'd love some suggestions!

  1. Welcome. He is really cute which is not surprising as where the pattern came from! Twinkle is the only name that came to mind - not really feeling very inspired tonight - sorry. I really hope that you enjoy blogging. There is a fabulous community on line but do beware - it is very addictive and much time can be lost ;)

  5. Congratulations on your new blog! I hope it brings you many happy hours :)) Your wee mouse looks very cute - I'm afraid I can't help with names, I'm notoriously useless at that kind of thing. Em xx

  9. I've just started reading blogs having stumbled across Handmade Monday, and am thoroughly enjoying the experience. Your little mouse is really cute - I could see my cat batting that around the house! Just a shame I can't crochet.

  11. Hi, your blog looks lovely. I'm new to it too and constantly tinkering with the way mine is set out. Crochet mice are fab - I always put fabric in the ears! Such a good way to use up tiny scraps of fabric.

  12. Your little mousey is so cute. I love his little ears.

    As for names how about either Frankie or Benjy. They were the white mice in A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
