Add the Ears and Tail to Your Miniature Felt Mouse
Ears are colored and sewn to the head seam of a miniature felt mouse.

The inner section of the ears of a miniature felt mouse can be colored with pastels or felt pens, before the ears are sewn in place to the seam join at the back of the mouse head.

To add a bit of color to the inner ears of your mouse, you can color the ear with a fabric felt pen, felt pen, colored pencils or pastels leaving the edges of the ear free of color. Pinch the base of the ear slightly to make a cup shape, and stitch the base of the ear to the back of the head at the seam between the body and the head as shown.

To Make the Tail - take the triangular tail piece and apply glue to one side. Beginning at the thickest end, roll the felt triangle across lengthwise to form a tail, keeping the glued seamline as even as possible. Allow the tail to dry, then sew the thick end to the back of the miniature mouse.
