Amigurumi Pattern: Roger the Christmas mouse

Roger is a sweet Christmas mouse with his alpine-style suit and his bag of gifts conquers our hearts
How to describe our little one? Well, for us it’s very special … it has the great gift of simplicity, it’s sincere, adorable, intriguing and above all very intelligent.
Each Christmas is responsible for helping the little elf to collect all the gifts that are ending in the workshop and place them on the sled so that Santa Claus on Christmas Eve can be ready on his travel through all the homes of the world 😀

Roger is our gift to all of you this Christmas
We are looking forward to our little mouse being part of your celebrations!

ASSEMBLE 

1.- Embroider the eyelids with a yarn of the same color as the head. Give 2 or 3 turns over the safety eye.
2.- Embroider the nose on the finest tip of the head between Rnds.1 and 4. Embroider it in a triangular shape, do it from the center up, taking 7sc in width on the Rnd.4. Embroider it well filled so it has volume.
3.- Sew the ears folding the part that will be sewn to the head. Once folded, support them on the back of the head, place the fold vertically between the Rnds.6 and 9 (counting from behind) and sew them.
4.- Sew the legs to the body between Rnds. 2 to 7 (counting from the bottom).
5.- Sew the arms to the body between Rnds. 6 to 7 (counting from the top).
6.- Join the head centered to body.
7.- Sew the wooden buttons on one end of the suspenders. Then, take the ends without buttons of the suspenders and sew them on the back of the body. Take as reference the two lines of the rounds made in BLO, sew them between them and leave approx. 6sc of distance between them. Once sewn, we will cross them to pass the suspenders from the left to the right and the one from the right to the left and thus form a cross from behind. Once the suspenders have been passed forward, sew the ends straight with the buttons, also between the BLO lines and leaving 8sc of distance between them.
8.- Sew the buttons transparent to the body, between both suspenders. The 1st button sew it between the Rnds.5 and 6; the 2nd button sew it between the Rnds.11 and 12 (on the two buttons count from the 1st round in white below the red round of the neck).
9.- Place the satin ribbon in the center of the neck, passing inside the central sc and going out again, leaving on each side part of the ribbon. Make a bow.
10.- Sew the tail to the body, centered between the legs and between the Rnds.11 and 12 (counting from the bottom).
11.- Sew the hat on the head and to the side.
