Sew & Sew #003: The Debi Birkin Sack of Mice Tea Cosy

Little Mouse heads are everywhere and the common phrase that is filtering the air of our flat is, “Mouse Bum”,  highly amusing Daddy Rivett.

Not too bad for making up this time, however, attention to detail is hard running, as usual.  I am sculpting each mouse with the embroidery needle, which  is putting a smile on everyones face.  They do look like Sylvanian Mice rather than the illustration and I have adapted the patterns a little using twisted cord for tails and sculpting with Fray Check.

I had to use glass eyes on this project, they are fiddly but worth it, I can’t wait for you to see the pictures.  Daddy Rivett says this is my best project to date.  Wait till I start on the Brambly Hedge Mice.

Keep Knitting,
