Her Mermouse

By far one of the most popular books in our house is Phoebe's Birthday. Beautifully illustrated it is a very sweet and simple story of a little mouse overcoming her fear of swimming just in time for her birthday. We are fans of the Phoebe books and this one is just the latest addition. I have yet to beginning any of the knitting patterns in the books as I just don't have the yarn required but the birthday dress in this book is amazing. It might be a next summer item though.

It was a no-brainer when it came to making April's next toy. I found the kits on Etsy which made this project a breeze. It was so fun making something I knew she would love so much and honestly that I love too. After seeing how popular the little mermouse is, I'm thinking it might be a good idea to make the spool of thread quilt from the book as well. That logic makes sense right?
