This is Coco’s favorite toy mouse, refurbished. She tore it to pieces over the last year and half, so that up until a week ago she was mostly tossing around an unrecognizable green scrap of felt. However, she loves it so much that we couldn’t bear to throw it out. So I made a new casing for it, stuffed in some fresh catnip, and now it’s back in the toy box!

I used a thick worsted yarn and a smallish hook with a tight gauge, to make the end result less prone to leaking catnip or being torn to shreds immediately by boisterous cats. Body was hole-less circle done in the round and folded in half. Ears were same with teardrop shaping applied to last two rounds.
