I dipped back into the McCall's Make-It Ideas well for this edition of I Love Vintage. There's something of an Easter theme (see the bunny?), though, really, bunnies are an 'anytime' treat.
These are beanbags that are almost entirely put together with regular glue. I never had much luck with gluing felt, but if you're going to try it, use fabric glue and clamp the edges with clothespins as the glue dries. Or just sew it; it's not very difficult, and the end result is sturdier and less likely to suddenly fail and send beans all over the floor.
Older McCall's mags always include patterns for their crafts, which I appreciate (and never actually use, but I think they're good for reference). Whoever originally owned this magazine must have made the mouse, because there are pen marks all over its pattern.
