Method
Create a template for the mouse's body, and one for its ears. You can find printables like this quite easily on the internet, or just copy my ones.

If you have printed the templates, cut them out.
Trace the templates onto the felt, one template on each colour.

Cut out the mouse body, and then cut out the ears.

Using the template as a guide, cut two small vertical slits in the mouse body.

Feed the mouse ears through the slits in the mouse body. If you make the slit too small for the width of the ears, then you can fold over the ears and make them look more mouse-like.
