First, fold the body of the mouse hamburger style so that the point of the teardrop touches the curve of the body.
Next, use your scissors to make two small vertical slits into the fabric, about one fourth of the way down.
Then, fold the mouse body hotdog style and cut a small horizontal slit close to the top of the fabric.

Step 5: Time to Add the Ears and Tail!

Place the mouse ears through the two vertical slits towards the top of the mouse's body.
After the ears are in place, turn the mouse where it is facing downward.
Open the slit at the top of the mouse's body and place the bottom of the candy cane through the slit.
Next, flip the mouse over.
Pull the middle part of the ears up so you can place the bottom of the candy cane further down the hole to safely secure the tail.

Step 6: For the Finishing Touch, Add the Eyes!
