I decided a couple of weeks ago to make a Wilhelmina Woodmouse for my new granddaughter for Christmas, she’s six and her favourite colour is dusky pink. Whilst I was at the Knitting and Stitching show at the weekend I visited the Cool Crafting stand and bought some lovely warm white felt for the mouse and some dusky pink felt for a coat. The pattern is in the Luna Lapin and Friends book, I made three rabbits before, I love making all the different outfits…
This time I wanted to make a mouse, in the book she’s called Wilhelmina. She went together pretty easily, I used some ditsy pink floral fabric for the ears and the feet and used blanket-stitch for the seams. I used Gutermann cotton thread this time and it was really nice to use but feels pretty strong.
She even has a cute curly tail!..
She hasn’t learnt to sit like a lady yet so I think a pair of bloomers are required! If everything goes to plan I’ll be making a top, a wrap dress, a coat and a pair of bloomers! I’ve traced the patterns out of the book, just need to get myself organised.
