Little Commission

I was asked to make something for my lovely friend as she wanted something of mine to give to her sister as part of her birthday present.

My scope was, make a couple of little things for her bedroom, perhaps a little lavender mouse and a lavender heart. There was no definite colour mentioned and her bedroom is mainly creams, so I opted for delicate pinks, in these lovely Tilda fabrics.


I love making these little mice they are cute, this time I gave them cream whiskers instead of the thick black ones and before I added their ears I thought they looked like a little pile of shrimps (admittedly the shrimps from the Muppet Show Tonight).



Anyhow, this is them all done and dusted, not sure how many are needed but I usually make a few of the same thing once I have the machine out.


I also made a couple of simple lavender hearts and hand embroidered a little patch for the front onto a lovely cream silk fabric with the word Love, quite appropriate we thought as a sentiment from one sister to another.

I hear she really liked them, Happy Birthday Amy! Xx

p.s. I have noticed that I am creeping towards 150 followers, how amazing thank you all! You know what that means, another giveaway... if there is something you would like to see in my giveway please feel free to let me know and I will rustle something up.

Thank you all for your kind words ladies, you give me such a boost and encouragement to carry on! Dana, that is the material you sent me, thanks again so much! xx Amanda, I have a soft spot for you too xx Lucy the whiskers are made from DMC threads using a big needle just push it through the nose and tie a little knot close the mouse's face on each side and trim to suit!
