Several months ago, I made this sweet set of mouse ears for my buddy, Herbie. He’s dressed as the door mouse from Alice in Wonderland! 🙂
When he dropped off the materials to make the ears, he left me with yards of grey felt…waaaaay more than I really needed.
Fast forward to today, when my landlord did his annual walk-through of our house. He noticed that my front door was a little drafty. I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do!
I grabbed my big stash of grey felt, as well a few other scrappies. 🙂
I cut out two 42″ x 13″ rectangles from the grey felt.
Then I folded them in half and drew a shape with my fabric marker.
I cut my shape out, and unfolded it.
Then, I sewed the two sides together, except for the very bottom center.
I turned the whole thing inside out and bugged Fella for a bit with my temporary puppet!
Time to add a face to this mysterious little guy!
I stuffed my plushy new pal…
…and now I have an adorable way to keep chilly drafts away from my door this winter!
