Felt Mouse Christmas Tree Decoration

Last year, I started a new tradition to make a Christmas tree decoration each year.  I wanted this year's to be extra special to mark the arrival of little Emily into our lives this year and celebrate her first Christmas.

For years I'd had the Molly and Mama pattern for this pinned and this year felt like the right time to make this gorgeous cutie!  Yes, now that I have a baby taking up all of my time, a fiddly complicated project seemed ideal (ha!).

I started late November and cut out the little pieces...

Eventually had time to embroider and sew the face...

Finally managed to finish the whole project...

I copied the pattern as close as I could, with the supplies I had in my stash.  Pretty close!  I made an addition of the letter beads, as I wanted this to be a little Emily mouse!  I'm really pleased with how nice the letters look.

I embroidered the date on the back, as per my decoration last year...

Very pleased with this, and glad I managed to keep the new tradition going!  Next year I'll pick something quick and easy!

Have a lovely Christmas!!!
