those beady little eyes
Which is your favorite?
A random flash of brilliance at 11:37 pm, while I was half asleep, told me to shrink the huge mousie pattern and make minis. The next morning, I obeyed, redrawing a much, much smaller pattern. I made one as a test (lavender), and decided that not only did the pattern work, but it was perfectly adorable.
I proceeded to cut out 12 more: 4 orchid, 4 black and white checkered, and 4 salmon pink. They’re all made of a vintage polyester-like fabric.. not icky polyester, but nice polester. It’s perfect for these little guys! :) It holds the shape well, and stretches slightly, so even when they’re stuffed to the brim, they’re a bit squishy. :D
I finished three of the orchid ones, so next I’ll be working on the black/white checkered. I need to find some cute ear fabrics to match that one though. I think the ear fabrics are the cutest touch. :)
They’ll be in the shop soon; I couldn’t take decent pictures today because it’s very cloudy outside. Since we’re expecting a thunderstorm soon, I’d better shut down the computer.. but it’ll be nice and cozy sewing along while the rain hits the windows! :) I love that feeling…
