More Lavender Mice

Following completion of my little red spotty mouse, my lovely friend spotted him and wanted one; but in colours that would match her lounge. Hunting through my stash I found some fabrics I thought would match to I set to making a couple more mice.

These are really quick and easy to do; I followed this simple guide on the All About You site.









They were all packed up and ready to go when I realised that I had forgotten to give them whiskers, so they got a last minute overhaul.



I was quite fond of these little fellas but they have gone to a good home; I promise to visit.


E.T.A. a few of you have enquired about the packaging, this is how I usually package my stuff up. I thought I would show you how it is usually done (the one above was taken apart and got rather crumpled up!), simple greaseproof paper cut to the size required and stitched by machine or hand with a little bit of ribbon added: see below, nice and easy, perfect fit and cheap (like me :) ) x

Back Soon ♥

I love the packaging you've done, it really makes the gift look special. Is it just tissue paper hand sewn? Would love some information on how you did it!

Louise - It is greaseproof paper from the kitchen cupboard! I usually sew it by machine in a zig zag stitch , I make little bags to the size of whatever it is I make. It's a little personal touch and its cheap (like me!)
Nici - never been on the CB forum but I will hunt it out now.
