👎 Negative note: it breaks easily if you pull it too much; it is difficult to see the worked stitches.

👉 I suggest you to start with a CHAIN JOIN IN RING, so there is no risk of breaking the thread.

👍Positive note: the final work is very soft and for this reason, it deserves a bit of effort!

With 1 ball of Amigurumi Chenille (50 gr), I maked 2 mice and I still have some thread left over.

It has a wide color’s variety and are similar of the animal’s fur colors, perfect to make amigurumi animals.

I used black and white cotton yarn to embroider the details (mustache, eyes and teeth).

To make hands, feet and internal ears, as well as the nose, I opted for cotton yarn; I like the contrast between the two yarns!

The final size of the little mouse amigurumi is 12 cm tall, with the indicated yarn.
