Amigurumi Mouse Free Pattern and Video

Oh, I'm in love with these mice!

A mouse family made from my new bunny pattern. All I did was change the way I shaped it with stuffing. This is one reason why I love Red Heart acrylic yarn, it shapes so easily! And of course I changed the ears and left off the pom pom.
