After seeing Ghillie's  poppet Sparkle the Winter Mouse, I knew I just had to do a mouse couple, they reminded me of the cartoon holiday specials I watched as a kid - so here they are making their debut, My yet to be name mouse couple in their Thanksgiving attire



gratuitous chest shot




For the girl mouse I used the Eleanor pattern

For the boy I altered the original poppet pattern  by enlarging it slightly eliminating the curve at the waist, I also trimmed the bum,
to get the sculpted abs I created a separate "chest" plate that I stitched to the inside of the front piece and stuffed from the inside,
it came out fabulous with no hand stitching

I plan to add more holiday outfits as they are created and will post them here

Here are the pattern pieces for the boy poppet with abs






(note the chest pattern will print out full size if you first save it to your computer,
(right click< save as) when it is on your computer ( right click< print))

My three year old said, "look they're mouses and they're dressed up." Super cute. I love that they are pilgrims.

Please would love the Boy poppet pattern and also would love a tut on the chest. My girl poppets are now drooling and demanding a hunk of thier own. Please share your goodness before I have a poppet revolt. (there are more of them than us)
