Instructions: 
  1. Push the bell into the toe of the sock.

  3. Tie a loop in the middle of all three pieces of wool.
  4. Place the loops around the bell and pull tight creating the mouse’s nose and whiskers.
  5. To create the mouse’s ears, push two small ketchup lids into the sock. Balance them on their sides at the top of the mouse’s head.
