Thank you @wittychild, @Bunny1kenobi, @roler, & @kittykill!!

One of my oldest friends asked me to make him a mouse for Christmas! It’s his favorite holiday!
I made two top hats after resizing a pattern I found online which was for a leather steampunk hat for a Barbie. After making the first, I modified the pattern to have a larger brim which I was able to shape to fit the mouse better. :smiley: Fiddly to put together, but I’m pleased!

How you made him look so kind and bright and expressive, and the lace details on his jacket…! The tiny glasses!! There’s something so sweetly nostalgic about him, and the colors remind me of an old favorite book, with vibrant watercolor illustrations.

Your mouse is adorable!! He looks like the mayor of Christmouse Town! I love his little glasses and he looks so well put together in his Christmassy outfit.

Thank you @nettleseed, @AntBee, @MegAskunk, & @AudiobookLover!! :mouse:

I spent some time making felt cloth to use for his outfit. I wanted him to be very “Dickensish” without being drab. Ended up with some felt cloth that I didn’t use, partially because of the color we (my son and I) chose to make him in. Currently I have 3 colors which are very nice for mice: Mocha, which I’ve used on most of them; Milk Chocolate & Copper. For a Scrooge-like mouse, I had to use Copper. :wink:

Before I covered him in the copper fiber, I had tried the top-hat on him and that seriously would have made a good Ghost of Christmouse Present. lol!!

I had seriously considered giving him spats too, but his legs are so short and his feet are so long! lol!! I tried just doing the spats on the feet and that didn’t look right.

Thank you!!

I had made several felt cloths to use for his clothes and laid them all out on my work table to compare and decide which to use. The rejected felt cloths will get used for something else. The heather grey is a mix of two types of fiber (probably Merino and Corriedale). Normally I work with just Merino, but I bought a bag of the mixed fibers because the colors were useful. :mouse:

He looks like the mayor of Mouseville!

Thanks!!

Is Mouseville a children’s book or something? He does look very "mayor"ly. I was going for Dickens, maybe Scrooge after the haunting, or Cratchit who was always nice.

I’m getting better at mouse haberdashery which is always an interesting part of making these creatures!. None of the clothes are sewn. :wink: :mouse:
