OK, there are not three blind mice as in the rhyme but are in fact five! This mouse making is quite addictive and difficult to stop once started. I have made them with tea stained calico, given them felt ears and stuffed them with a fibrefil and Valerian herb. They make the most wonderful cat toys.
I had bought the Valerian to go into the sleep pillows I was making but discovered that the herb has quite a pungent smell that can only be described as stinky! I am so glad that I didn't put it in the pillows!!! Anyway, cats find the herb as addictive as cat mint and it acts as a stimulant for sluggish cats.
I tested one of the mice on Gizmo. Thanks goodness they don't have eyes.
