See how far behind I am........................... not really! Actually, I'm stocking up for my shows this year!!! I used a Soft In the Head pattern for these cute little guys! I hope to have mice for every season tucked in all my little spaces. This one sits proudly on a pumpkin holding a piece of candy corn.
First we have a "Valentine Mouse in a Pouch". It measures about 8" by 3" and is made from a coffee/vanilla stained osnaburg fabric. I love working with the wool appliques. On this one I have a double heart from red and black wool.
I also did one with my favorite flowers......... Coneflowers.............. appliqued with mustard, black and green wool. Tonight I will finish some up with appliqued stars on the pouch.
It took 2 weeks but I finally finished up 12 of these bunnies! They are a whooping 30" tall with the ears standing up! They were ordered by 3 shops and I made one to put in my Etsy Shop. Right before I got the order for the bunnies I had cut out 2 penny rugs which laid on the table for the first week. I did manage to finish one of them this week too. Also, if you notice I have some really cute mice on a pumpkin mounted in a zinc lid between the bunnies. I need to add a candy corn to him before I post pictures. Well.......... back to work!!! More bunnies on the cutting table but no clothes to mess with....... these little guys are in a pot!
I found some old looking graters at a show the other day and brought them home hoping I could come up with something to do with them. This is what I came up with............ mice seem to be popping up in anything so I decided to put him in a wool made tulip and attach it to the shredder. He is now listed in my ETSY shop http://www.teresasprimtreasures.etsy.com/ . I'm also working on a Sunflower and putting one in an old China teacup!
Welcome to my little spot on the web! I hope you find my journal interesting and please check back often! Not many days go by that I'm not creating something. My husband makes the most wonderful wooden items for me to prim up. He closes the shop down from October until the end of February to dabble in his hobbies. So, during those months my list of new treasures for him to create in the Spring grows very long.
