Puzzlgrl, use your imagination to sew everything. it is cute the way it is, if you dont like it, make your own pattern!

in the pattern: the parts are the same for both cat and mouse. i made them they are so cute will be making more in different color yarns. this sight is great made more then i could count for the children in the bronx, ny hospital for the christmas/chanuka time. how about two very full cartons that the tissues come in from the supper market. please you to think of this donation also. thank you phyllis

The mouse pictured does not have separate arms, legs, face or ears. The instructions given will make the mouse as pictured. As to where to sew on the cat parts - - follow the photo or use your own best judgement for placement.

Where's the rest of the pattern???? The mouse has only pattern for body--even if you use same pattern as cat for arms, legs, what about the face (mouse must have different ears at least)? And where is the ILLUSTRATION of how to sew it all together for either animal?
