I know I’ve got several readers who have been waiting patiently for this tutorial & pattern… having lived without internet for several months, I’m only able to do this now!
Click for: MILFORD MOUSE instructions
I made this lovely pincushion with my craft group on a recent World Cruise, and many of the crafters enjoyed it so much that they made a second (and perhaps a third!). He’s named ‘Milford’ as we were sailing through fjords & Milford Sound in New Zealand at the time. The friendly mice in the pic below were not made by me – I sold mine at the charity sale without taking a final pic! You’ll need approx 12″x12″ of your chosen quilt-weight cotton print fabric, some finer-fill to stuff, a pipe cleaner for his tail and some beads/thread for eyes & nose. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!
