Thank you very much!! :smiley: :mouse:

That’s actually a “working” loom. I used a comb for the beater.
I sorely wish I had really tiny carpenter tools, but comfort myself with the knowledge that mice don’t have them either.

How long it takes varies. I usually have several going at the same time. Sometimes I am working on their tools/objects, or making felt fabric to use for their clothes, or any number of activities that eventually end up being used to complete a figure. Weaving a tiny rug on that loom took a lot more time than I wished. :wink:

Currently I have 3 un"identified" mice on my side table along with two creatures I have not previously made in this “series”. These are all creature “blanks” - they have their armature and enough foundation fiber to give them their basic shape, but are far from finished.

Your creatures are always adorable and have so much character, but what makes them so complete is the detail in their accessories. Love this one!

Thank you very much!! :smiley: :mouse: squeak

The loom was pretty wobbily for most of the project (i.e. when I was weaving). The cross bar at the top kept slipping downward. I didn’t finally resort to glue (tsk tsk) until I had finished as much weaving as I was going to leave on the loom.

I had thought about actually doing a simple tapestry design. If I had been able to make the loom more stable, I might have done that. It had been many long years since I’ve done any weaving.

My son has declared that the next mouse coming up has the cutest of all the mice faces thus far. I can’t be objective about them.

Oh my goodness, the tiny little loom! Where is this village all your tiny friends live? Can I move in? I’m pretty short. Maybe they won’t notice I’m not a mouse…

Thank you!! Thank you!! :smiley: :mouse: squeak!

Mouse hats are always a challenge, an interesting challenge since there are no rules as to what is appropriate! :wink: Hats are also a great way to use up tiny bits of hand made felt cloth that are too small for much of anything.

@photojenn is a MUCH better weaver, but she also has much better looms! :slight_smile: (but does she have a weaver’s hat??)

None of my creatures are speciesists. They like & appreciate diversity! :mouse: Candy makers are particularly welcomed.

I’ve been told by a reliable source that nightly they join the Daikin Lions (circa 1986 Animal Farm) in the Tardis and take a trip to all the local Dunkin Donuts. This remains unverified.
