New Plush: Sassy Mouse + GIVEAWAY *CLOSED*

Okay, so some of you might recognize Grumpy mouse, he was my first prototype of the Bouncing Belly Button pattern, because he has secretly appeared in this blog before.  Well, to make a long story short, he has been bugging me to make him a girlfriend for ages and since I had quite a few scraps left over from sewing Blueberry I decided to oblige.  Meet Sassy!

Aren't they the cutest couple?

I hope he doesn't think that the bow on her head is cheese...

I had enough scraps in fact that I made another girly-mouse for you readers!  Yes, YOU!  I wanted to do a small giveaway for a while and I just can't wait any longer.  As I get more followers I'm hoping to do bigger giveaways in the future, so PLEASE, tell your friends about me!  You'll get sweet stuff out of the deal! :)

See the details of the contest under the break!

Girly-Mouse Giveaway!

For this giveaway you get a little ice-blue mousie with a removable cherry-red bow.  The bow is securely sewn to a metal, jewelry style pin-back.  (For this reason I do not recommend this toy to small children, please remove the bow before any kind of hard-core playing!)

If you think that the mouse has been incorrectly gendered(?) as a girl, you can also move the bow down to make a handsome bowtie.  You can also take it off and pin it yourself if you want!

Ways to enter:
  1. Be a follower of The Cute Octopus (and leave a comment)
  2. Blog about my giveaway (and comment with a link to your blog so I can see, too!)
Please leave a separate comment for each entry!

For an extra entry, find Grumpy's previous appearance in this blog and email the title of the post to the.cute.octopus[at]gmail[dot]com.  PLEASE, for this entry, don't post in a comment and ruin the fun!

 Winner will be chosen on April 7th!  Good luck!
