A cute little mouse that's going on the craft table to collect all those stray pins (hopefully). The pins will be in the mushroom so I won't have to stick her.

Very cute. I love the mushroom. And her apron. And cute expression.

Idea??? A stong magnet glued on the base of her {the underside where she sits on the table}. Then if a pin falls, just wave the mouse over the floor. And she will capture it.

It will also help to keep her upright...as a counter weight for balance.  Grin Just a suggestion.

Thank you for all of the sweet comments. She is made with cotton fabric, poly-fil stuffing, faux fur, lace trim, and craft felt. Originally, her feet, hands, and tail were wool felt but turning those skinny pieces proved impossible, even using the two dowel method of turning!

And never fear, Stllatthetop, she has a chenille stem armature and big, poofy pantaloons that provide excellent stability. I use an earth magnet for finding rogue pins and when that misses one, I usually find it in my foot.

This pattern is Primrose Woodmouse, (mine is grey because I didn't have brown fur) from Jill Barklem's Brambly Hedge books, the little stories of the mice that live in Brambly Hedge. Sue Dolman created a pattern book for all of the characters called Brambly Hedge Pattern Book that includes all the patterns for the mice. My mother gave me the book a million years ago and I finally got around to using it. The patterns are full size and quick to make.

 That is beyond adorable. I have to check out that book. Of course, I would never make anything that intricate and tiny. I would chicken out. But I LOVE looking at what you make!
