Step 1: Fold and Cut
Fold your material in half. Cut into cresent shape with one end pointed and the other rounded. Open. Tuck a small piece of yarn in to rounded end of the cresent, leaving the rest hanging out. Fold your material back in to the cresent shape.
Step 2: Sewing and Stuffing
Starting at the tail, start sewing. Sew about half way up the back then stop. Using your fingers, push stuffing all the way back to the tail. Then sew some more, stop, and add more stuffing. Keep doing this till your mouse body is stuffed with stuffing and the tail is stitched on tight.
Step 3: Final Touches
You take the pointed end and color on the nose. Then you draw two dots above the nose for eyes. Now you have a super cute homemade mouse cat toy!
