Hello! Please note: This listing is for a digital PDF pattern only, not the actual item or the materials. This pattern is written in English.

Use this digital PDF pattern to make a tiny friend from scraps and take it with you wherever you go! This wee little mouse is designed to fit inside an empty Altoids® tin and will slip easily into purses or backpacks for travel. You can easily customize for a girl or a boy, depending on the colors you choose. This pattern uses both machine and hand sewing.

This 8-page Wee Mouse Tin House sewing pattern features:

- Tiny 4 inch tall corduroy or flannel mouse
- Stuffed pillow
- Felt 'mattress'
- Felt blanket
- Teeny felt teddy bear for the mouse
- Actual sized, digitally drawn pattern pieces that do not overlap
- Step by step instructions with detailed, professionally drawn diagrams
- Sample photos

This pattern is written for folks who have had some basic sewing and embroidery experience and who are familiar with common sewing terms. If you can machine sew, precision cut small pieces, and embroider basic hand stitches and French knots, you can make this project. I've included lots of tips and tricks for easy construction -- No need to be afraid of the small scale!

NOTE: This toy design is quite small and the teddy bear in particular may present a choking hazard. This is not a toy designed for children under the age of three!

Materials used to make the wee mouse are commonly available and probably in your scrap pile already! They include: corduroy OR flannel, wool or wool-blend felts, cotton ticking, stuffing and coordinating thread and floss. A combination of machine and some hand sewing are used. Freezer paper is also used to make construction simple and easy.

This pattern is in PDF format on 8.5 x 11 paper, so you can print it from your regular printer at home on standard paper or card stock, as many times as you need for personal use.

Thanks for this adorable pattern. The instructions were very clear and simple to follow and I managed to complete it for a 3 year old girl in a few hours. In fact, I spent more time looking for a tin to recycle as we don't have Altoids in Malaysia. I used a slim cigar tin instead and had to fasten it with an elastic band. There were indeed good ideas of how to sew tiny. My teenagers are jealous and now want to me to make something for them so I'm looking at the pattern for dolls and dresses.

Love! I have made a bunch of these already. Because I also love to decoupage little boxes, I have decorated some inside and out as a snug bedroom. I also gave some a little sheet. This little pattern packs a big punch. My grown up quilting friends were tickled when they opened these gifts!

I used a tin that is smaller than Altoids, so I had to modify size a bit. I also added vinyl stickers on the front to make it looks like a house, and bedroom inside. My kids already lost the blanket, pillow and little bear, so I’m glad I can use the pattern again!

Such a cute pattern! I made six of them. This one is for a little one who loves Minnie Mouse. Thank you!
