Puppets!!! How about stitching a couple of easy finger puppet mice?
Open the box, grab your scissors, and you can get going right away with this beginner sewing project that takes you step-by-step through the basic skills for stitching toys. This is the everything-but-the-scissors kit that includes the 20+ page tutorial, the printed pattern, a costume pattern page, accessories pattern page, cardstock stand pattern, and all the supplies you need to get you started making easy-to-sew finger puppet in an afternoon. No need to traipse around to a bunch of stores or hunt around online, just the right amount of everything you need to get started start making - delivered directly to you.
Starting to learn to sew? The instructions are designed to be beginner-friendly, using a sewing machine or completely by hand.
If you're more experienced at stitching, this pattern will open the door to so many simple, creative, and fun options for adding character to your little mouse. Top hats, bonnets, skirts, scarves and more are on the costume pattern page. Another page will get you started with personalizing your character creations with accessories.
An easy sewing project for beginners and skilled crafters (maybe oldsters and youngsters?) to work on together, it’s quite likely to turn into a family tradition. Children under10 who don’t already have a bit of sewing experience will most likely need adult accompaniment in order to succeed.
Finishing at 5 inches tall, these mice will fit right into the standard 1:12 standard dollhouse using the included cardstock stand pattern. A mouse can be a character in a puppet play, a little face that peeks out of the top of a stocking, an ornament for your tree or tablescape, or a very special package topper. Add the stand and the mouse can live in a dollhouse, join fantasy characters in a fairy house, or join other toys on a shelf.
This listing is for the everything-but-the-scissors kit that will come to you in the mail. If you prefer to source your own supplies (a great project for using up scraps!), you can order a digital download pdf file pattern, here, or order a printed pattern via mail here.
So how about making a batch of little mice as part of your holiday prep this year? It’s a small convenient project you can easily carry around with you to work on when you have few minutes to spare. Make some yourself and/or enlist the children in your life to help design costumes for the characters. Please note: mice have small parts and are not suitable for children under 3.
