Not Even a Mouse: Prototype

Couple of prototype photos of my new ‘Twas The Night pattern in development: Not Even A Mouse!

This sample is by no means final, as I’m still experimenting with details. Cheese wedge was a fail. Not included. Teddy bear was lifted directly from my Wee Mouse pattern and it will be included for sure. I think the side sleeper mouse looks so cozy and snuggled in, so he will probably be the final mouse rather than back sleeper mouse. (But I find back sleeper mouse pretty charming and wanted to do another round of changes on him later, maybe a one-off ornament. Cute little guy with his stumpy legs. Needs fattening up though, bless him. And arms.)

The felt pillow is currently too small. I love the cotton ticking pillow from my Wee Mouse pattern, but I don’t want to oblige you to buy special fabric for a less-than-2-inch pillow, so I’m trying a hand embroidered ticking stripe. I’m not currently happy with the embroidery designs on the cup or blanket, and blanket isn’t the right size yet…Blah blah blah and about 50 more details I’m dithering about. On we go!
