A quiet toy for Ellie to play with during church. Daddy mouse and 6 baby mice to go, along with the "Swiss chalet." The baby mice are smaller than my thumb. Pattern from Scrap Saver's Christmas Stitchery, ISBN 0-8487-0646-3
My recommendations for making this acorn:
--Use lightweight fabrics, such as linen, cotton, etc.
--Use heavyweight thread. I prefer to use upholstery thread for its strength when pulling and tying threads.
