I Love Those Meeces to Pieces

Hello, Dear Ones!
Do you remember the olden cartoon "Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinx"? Mr. Jinx (the cat) was always chasing the little mice, Pixie and Dixie. I think he actually said, "I hate those Meeces to pieces!"
 Well, I'm loving these Meeces to pieces!
I decided to make a pincushion and of course I went to Pinterest to take a look.
 I found this adorable and very easy pattern for a pincushion - a Meece! :)
For the life of me, I thought I had pinned it and was going to leave you the link but I believe I must have just printed out the pattern because I can't find it on my Pincushion board!
I hate that and I'm so sorry!
Nanna was so kind to give me the link to this pattern and HERE it is.
Thank you, Nanna

The pattern is from the blog Bustle and Sew and HERE is the PDF pattern.
I want to thank this lady for the darling pattern and being so gracious to share it with us.
 I started out making a polka dot Meece with special ears! I filled the bottom with dried beans to give it weight and then filled the rest with the polyester fluffy stuffy! I have my own language, I know!
Well, that little Meece was so cute, I had to make another one.
You know what happened then?
 Baby Meeces! Yep, three of them.
 This is Edward.
 Silly Suzy.
 And last but not least, Lantana.
Like I said, I love these little Meeces to pieces!
For the life of me I just can't bring myself to poke any pins into them!
They're just too cute!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Merry Mice

Five merry mice were born in May (Hold up five fingers.)
The first one said, In the Mud, let’s play (Grab thumb.)
The second one said, No way, Hosea (Grab index finger.)
The third one said, In the middle I must stay (Grab middle finger)
The fourth one said, I am mad today (Grab ring finger)
The fifth one said, Our Mom we must obey (Grab Last finger)

  33. Hi Shelia

    Your mice are adorable! So pleased you enjoyed making them. Love from all at Bustle & Sew. xxx

  34. They are too cute to poke a pin in! And how, pray tell, do you come up with the names? There's some serious creative juice running through that brain of yours!

  35. Adorable. I have to make some of those. Now that the holidays are over I am ready to do some projects.

  36. Oh lo, the Little mices are too adorable and you are so talented, I adore all you make, wow! Your 2014 is to a good start, I can see that! You look like Doris Day in your new picture and I always thought she was so all American you!

  37. Oh I love your blog, you make me laugh! You make them and then you can't stick pins into them. You probably had a bedroom full of sweet doll babies and stuff animals when you were a young girl. I love the little meeces though and I may make myself one, if I have time. They are just too cute!
    Hugs, Cindy

  38. Love them too! Wish I was as crafty as you are Sheila!
