I've waited a while...

to share this little one with you!

Quite some time ago I was asked by a lovely customer to make a mouse for a dear friend. 
When she told me what she was after 
(a convict dressed mouse, with a swag bag and champagne glasses or bottle incorporated) 
I wasn't sure I could successfully complete the order, but I thought it was worth a go. 
Lucky for me it turned out to be easier than 
I first thought and both myself and the customer were delighted with...

"Presiousss"



It took me a while to work out how to add in the champagne glasses, 
in the end I thought this idea worked well


I made the swag bag from some hessian and drew on the $ sign


The little outfit was tricky, as was the hat, but I think I managed an okay job.

The whole thing was an enjoyable process and I hear that Jodie was delighted with her "Presiousss" 
and he's now on his way home with her to Oz!

  1. Very cute and very nicely done AND he is on his way here! I wonder if this friend had an ancestor who came out here as a convict and this is why she wanted a convict mouse:o)) An interesting thought;)
    Take care and have a good weekend.
    Hugs Lyn x

    1. Thanks for your kind words Lyn, I believe that the friend is a English girl living in OZ and the convict reference is a joke between themselves :0) xx

    1. Hi Helen,

      Thanks so much, if I didn't need to pay the bills I'd gladly send you all my mice, I'm not sure what Lex would think of this though ;0)
      Thanks for stopping by.
