I tried out my idea to make a small bird that was not round like a chick. I think I did it though I do not like these eyes! I may have to make it again just to put better ones in. I was going for little black beady eyes but these are too big and all wrong. I am amazed that I can see the loose thread in the photo! I really need to get my eyes checked.
This is the mouse I made first. I used the mouse-shape (up ended) for the bird. This feels too fat for a mouse but maybe making him fat makes him cuter! The tutorial did not have whiskers on it. I think the shorter whiskers are better and will trim the other side to match today. Also I hope to remember to unravel the yarn in the whiskers.
