Have a mice day!

This felt mouse stuffie was inspired by some of Krista’s favorite childhood books about Poppy the deer mouse. And we think it’s pretty neat that the author got the idea for these books while living in Corvallis, OR, which is just an hour and a half from us in Portland! Since the project was inspired by the Poppy books, Krista also created a mini version of our felt California poppy for the mouse to hold.
