Guesses:

  1. inverted mice very far away

    STAR (rats, backwards)

  2. part of the shoes.

    SOLE (a singular part of the shoes)

  3. something you can see at a garden

    TREE!

  4. every hobbit want to be ....

    TALL (do they?)

  5. beloved back

    this should be DEAR (back), but it doesn't fit!

  6. something that you usually spin.

    REEL (which just fell out of the other answers)

  7. modify

    EDIT

  8. move carefully

    EASE

  9. retreat loved animals

    STEP (PETS, retreating)

  10. you need them to call each other

    SIMS (not sure I see why I need them to call each other though; I'd just put them in neighbouring houses)

  11. see

    SPOT! SPOT RUN!

  12. appear

    SEEM

Hidden six-letter word:

STRESS

Typo:

the E and A get swapped in DEAR, backwards

  • $\begingroup$ For "you need them to call each other", I think it's referring to this. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jan 7 '18 at 13:14
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the edit :o) I guess I should have made a picture. $\endgroup$ – Will Crawford Jan 7 '18 at 14:10

One thing to note at first:

The 12 answers will start from the 6 outside points, so there will be 6 pairs of answers sharing a starting letter.

And here are some of my guesses for answers (partial list)...

Something you usually spin

Tale, yarn

Appear

Seem

Inverted mice very far away

Star ("rats" backwards)

Something you can see at a garden

Rose

Part of the shoes

Sole

See

View, date
