Maurice - Felt Mouse Pattern
Meet Maurice. He's a simple little fellow, very easy to make.
It's a small felt mouse pattern - designed for fun and portable hand sewing. If you attach a hanging loop to his head, he'd make a great Christmas tree ornament. Or you could fill him with catnip and give him to a special cat. :-)

Easy! If you've never handsewn felt before, this is a great project to start. Maurice uses just a few super simple stitches to make – stitches that are so easy I teach them to kids as young as six. You can do it!

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern.
For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.
You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.
For example, if you're using this pattern to make ornaments which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!
Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to die cut all the felt pieces, or attach all the hanging loops, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
