Karolane Fiola also tested this pattern for me and she embroidered all the details onto the face.

Facial details:



With White cotton yarn, place a long stitch against the outer corner of the eye. be careful not to pull it so tight that it slips under the eyes.


With the pink yarn from the tail and feet, embroider a square nose between the eyes. Placement of the nose, between rounds 13/14, 4 stitches wide.

lip split, whiskers, and brows:

Make sure you take a long string of thin cotton thread or embroidery floss. Make the lip first, from the center at the bottom of the nose down 4 rounds make a vertical stitch. from there, make one side of the whiskers, 5 stitches away from the lip between the 4 rounds. Place the top whisker at an angle with the outer corner pointing up, the middle whisker should be straight and the bottom whisker should be in a downward angle.

Follow the same instruction on the opposite side. The brows are last, make two small downward stitches above each eye, one round wide.

And you are done! I hope you enjoyed making this mouse as much as I did!
