Open the box, grab your scissors, and you can get going with this project right away. This is the everything-but-the-scissors kit that includes the pattern and all the supplies you need to get you started making easy-to-sew miniature critter in an afternoon. No need to traipse around stores or line up materials online.
Your mouse can be a finger puppet that peeks out of the top of a stocking, an ornament for your tree or tablescape, or a very special package topper. The kit comes with hand-prepared boiled wool, printed pattern includes the card stock pattern and fully illustrated instructions (with how to prep boiled wool), plus patterns for optional costumes and accessories.
If you're new to sewing, you'll find the instructions beginner-friendly whether you have a sewing machine or want to learn hand-stitching techniques for toymaking. Children under 10 will most likely need adult accompaniment in order to succeed unless they already have a bit of sewing experience. And if you're more experienced at sewing, you'll find lots of creative costume and accessories options for exercising your imagination. For some ideas to get you started, visit the Design-Your-Own page or our Customers' Character Gallery.
The mice are about 5 inches tall, so fit right into the 1:12 standard for dollhouses. Start a new holiday tradition by making a batch of little mouse characters this year. Make different characters and/or enlist the children in your life to design costumes for the characters. Please note: mice have small parts and are not suitable for children under 3.
In addition to the printed pattern and instructions, the kit includes:
Body fabric: 10” x 10” piece of hand-processed boiled wool
Eyes: 3mm opaque black glass seed beads (6/0), 4
body: all-purpose thread
whiskers, eyes: button & craft thread
Needle for handsewing
Polyester stuffing: small amount for head
Mouse tail material
Glue: Aleene’s Fabric Fusion. (Our favorite glue, Beacon Fabric-tac, can't go on an airplane due to flammability concerns. That means for safe shipping during the holiday season we need to send your kit with Fabric Fusion. It takes a bit longer to set but is quicker and more reliable to get to you.
