What You'll Need:

12x18-inch piece of gray felt

Black marker

Blunt scissors

Fabric glue

Pink felt

Two buttons


Gray thread

Six pipe cleaners

Make a mouse costume with this hood. Fold the gray felt in half horizontally. Refer to the illustration to draw the hood, tie strings, and ear patterns on the felt. Follow the dimensions shown. Cut out all the pieces.

To make the hood, bring side A and side B of the hood piece together and glue them at the seam. Let the glue set. Cut a hole in each front corner of the hood. Thread the tie strings through the holes and tie the ends in a knot.

Bring sides A and B together as shown here.

Glue the gray felt ears on the hood. Cut two inner ear pieces from pink felt and glue the pieces to the gray ears. Sew 2 buttons on the hood at the front rim for the eyes. Glue three pipe cleaners on each side for whiskers.

You can now decorate the hood with felt ears, button eyes and even whiskers!
