As you can see, this newborn mouse has his own Moses basket bed and a leaf blanket, allowing for some fun pretend play for
young children to practice bedtime routines.
He �ts perfectly inside of the basket, nesting under his leaf blanket, and kids will enjoy putting the young animal to sleep.
It is relatively quick to work up given its siGCPFOCMGUCYQPFGTHWNIKHVHQTIKTNUCPFDQ[UNKMGa6JG[

I purchased a PDF download for Baby mouse in Moses basket but never received it. I got an
email thanking me for ordering it by PayPal but, when I checked it was not on PayPal. I used
my credit card. I can't download the pattern because it isn't on my credit card and I don't
use PayPal.

platform? Could you please forward the purchase email to me at:
sweetsofties@gmail.com? This way I can look into the issue and help out. Thank you!

Hello! I am currently making this sweet little mouse, but I noticed that there is not
instructions for how to make the tail. It says in the �nishing instructions to sew on the tail,
and the picture has a tail, but there are no instructions.

Ooops, I'm so sorry -- I failed to add in the part where you make a chain with pink yarn
to create the tail! Chain as many as you'd like to create the length of tail desired. I will
edit the pattern to add that in. Thank you for catching this!
