Mr. Mouse would like to interrupt this tutorial to report that I use my seam ripper as often as a mouse uses his whiskers. And while he feels its sad that he doesn't have whiskers, he thinks it is tragic that I gave instructions yesterday that would make a mutilated mouse. So if you followed along, better get out your seam ripper. Sorry about that!
Now we are ready to assemble the body. Attach the arms to a 1.5 by 2.5 inch rectangle of the light fabric. While you're at the sewing machine, attach the right and left feet to the center 1.5 inch square of background fabric. And finally, sew the arms, tummy and feet together. If you have corrected the nose section, you can attach this on top to complete the center section.
Lay the 2.5 inch square of background fabric face down on the corner of dark fabric. Sew along the diagonal and iron the flip triangle over. Trim. Now you have the diagonal piece of tail.
You will also want to cut a 3.5 by 4.5 rectangle of background as well as a 1.5 by 4.5 rectangle of dark fabric.
Now you have all the components to make the right hand section of the mouse. First sew together the 3.5 by 4.5 rectangle of background to the 1.5 by 4.5 rectangle, that is, sew A to B. Next sew a 1.5 by 2.5 inch rectangle of background to a 1.5 inch square of dark fabric. This is where the tail is attached to the mouse body. Sew C to D. Next sew the diagonal part of the mouse tail (E) to C+D. And finally sew A+B to C+D+E to F. Or more simply...sew the parts together as shown above.
Last but not least, its time to call the exterminator. You have a mouse problem!
