So keeping on track with making at least one project out of all those vintage magazines I bought, this weekend I decided to use the McCalls Needlework and Crafts Fall and Winter 1974-1975. I would have been 13 years old when this magazine came out!
Anyway after glancing through I decided to make the yo-yo mouse. That's him down there on the right standing next to that freaky upside down clown thing. Did you know I HATE, no loathe, clowns? I debated on making the dog but the mouse's little yo-yo ears just called my name.
So I chose to make him with a valentine theme to add to my decorations in my Happy Shelves and here is how he turned out!
I used a fabric remnant with white hearts for his body and ears. His face and yo-yo hands and feet are made with solid red fabric. I happened to have some shiny red pipe cleaners in my stash and used those to give him a little bling for this arms and legs.
I really like how he turned out!
I added a little red button detail to his already adorable ears.
Here are a couple of other "lovely" items that I could have chosen to make
I'm sure my dear husband and son would have loved for me to make them these sweaters but unfortunately, I can't knit.
I actually do like these little bibs, except that string around the neck looks dangerous to me!
I do wish I could knit!
