glamping with very nice mice

little handmade mice with a feed sack tent on a camping trip

The admiral, mrs. croft and friends set out on a holiday camping adventure over the labor day weekend. They are, of course, glampers. The kind of mice who feel a chandelier, china, carpets and a proper bed are bare necessities. (PS – note on the photo – the fire is pretend- photoshopped in)

Do you know some very nice mice who love to camp?

The little tent is made from this free pattern with some adjustments. Print the pattern at 85% and cut out on the cut line. I did not sew it. It’s just one layer of fabric (a vintage feedsack I’ve been saving for just this sort of occasion). The edges are raw. It took about 5 minutes to make.

The mice are made from another free sewing pattern.

  1. My little mice have been camping all summer. They only recently packed their tent away so they can get ready for a big move. Ahhh new campgrounds to explore! Oh, my grandson helped in setting up the campsite and he thought they needed s’mores. So a toothpick, tiny bit of dark cork square and a very tiny white Pom Pom did the trick. ( I wish I could add a photo , but I don’t know how)

    • Thanks Barbara. The smore idea is genius. I’d love to see. There is no way to upload photos here but you can tag photos on instagram with #annwoodpattern or email a photo to info at ann wood handmade dot com.

    I downloaded the nice move pattern and I have to say they are soooo sweet!! I do have a question, which end is the head and which end is the bottom? The second one I sewed I felt the top really was the bottom or I am cutting and not sewing in deep enough of seam allowance. Help! Haha their heads seem too big and the bottoms can’t make them stand up by themselves.

    • Hi Michelle – please take a closer look at the tutorial – especially step 4 which refers to the nose. And re- standing on their own – sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t – you can put a little weight in the bottom to help – a couple pennies work well.
