3. Cut out brown felt ears. Then cut slightly smaller inner ears from pink felt. Stick pink ears in the centre of the brown ears. Pleat the base of each ear and glue in place on background.

4. Trace the mouse shape, without the ears, and cut out from brown felt. Stick to background using fabric glue.

6. Thread whiskers on to the needle. Sew through face at nose position and then pull the needle away, leaving whiskers in place. Cut a small square of black felt and stick over centre of whiskers of the nose.

7. To finish, glue the joggle eyes in place. Tie ribbon into a bow and glue over the mouse’s neck.
