Mouse Family Progress



Mr. Mouse finally got his wife, Mrs.Mouse and also a son! I'm not done
yet and I'll be taking some better pictures but felt the need to introduce the new members of the family anyway.

Mrs.Mouse got a parasol. I'm not sure if it's done yet. I made it out of paper then covered that in lace. I might stain the wooden skewer and also add a wooden handle instead of the red bead, we will see.


I've been sewing all the clothing by hand. The heads are needle felted along with the limbs and tail. Today I made the little boy a slingshot with his promise to only shoot at tin cans. And Mr.Mouse is still waiting for his pocket watch. Oh my! I'll do my best to get that done or at least get started on that tonight. So many things to make with just so many hours in the day! And of course I'm thinking of adding one more mouse to the family so stay tuned...


Thanks for looking! UPDATE ~ here is the pattern book. I flipped though it on video for you
