whiskers for mice
It occurred to me lately that mice have whiskers. But the very nice mice sewing pattern has no whiskers… I have made a ton of mice but I never thought to add them until this guy.
It’s super easy to do.
Make a small knot about an inch away from the end of your cotton thread. Insert the needle and bring it out the other side. Let the knot catch. Make a knot against the fabric on the other side and clip the thread. Repeat for more whiskers.
I have a few little wire beds and I’m making a mouse for each.
The main project here at the moment is still the captain pattern. I am in the woodshed with them, making tons. I think you’re going to love the boot method and easy lined jacket especially.
And forest friends. This is a percolating idea. Since I started hanging things on the wall I get more and more ideas for other things that could join them.
