~Whimsical Mice~

Awwww, aren't these just the S-W-E-E-T-E-S-T Little Mice! I had so much FUN making these little mousers and they are so very different for me. I FINALLY used some of my mohair. Yup, I am dabblin' in that too (I am also working on a couple of other things with mohair...


I must give a bit of credit and inspiration credit thou, so that goes to The Cheswick Co. for the pinkeep bottom and Soft in the Head for the looking up mousie.

This are more so decorative pin-keeps and bigger then what you think. They are about 13.5 inches round, 8 inches tall and about 4.5 inches wide...


Lil mousers are 4 inches tall and so very sweet! I really love them *smirk* I made lil wire tails for them, along with a teeny tiny rusty bell and a paper flower on each tail, for whimsy. I hand stitched the wool felt to the top and then hand stitched each mouse and garland to the top of each pin-keep as well. I put a dowel through to stable the mousie, atop the pin-keep too.

I also filled them with steele shot, so they sit nice. They have glass eys, wax whiskers, blushed ears and cheeks, for sweetness. I added a neat pin and a lil heart...that reads "Made with Love". I will have these sweeties on TDIPT Mercantile for the update on the 1st.

If you should have any questions, please feel free to give a shout. Well, these lil mousers have made me think of Sweet Spring today...and it just simply can not arrive soon enough! Toodles for now, ~Tonya
