This can also serve as a great toy for a cat or dog. If you have some crochet skills and want to try something new, be sure to check out this project. This isn't one of those boring easy crochet patterns, either. You'll find yourself fully engaged throughout the creation of this project, and you might want to make another one as soon as you finish. While you're at it - make three so you have three blind mice.
