This cute catnip mouse was sewn by hand from a recycled red knit sweater. The body measures 4 1/2" long and 3 1/2" tall, with the tail measuring an additional 8 1/2". The tail is macrame yarn which I knotted at both ends, sewing one knotted end securely inside the body. The eyes and nose were embroidered with black embroidery thread. The mouse is stuffed with a good handful of organic catnip from my garden, and topped off with scraps from the sweater. Your cat with love to hold, hug, and bite this fun toy. He'd be a very happy kitty if he got this toy for Christmas!
