An obvious choice

Mouse-2The animal I am making next is quite an obvious choice I think, if you remember my house mouse invasion. Yes, they are still around. They now have to share the food in my tiny city garden with a grown group of sparrows, some starlings, blackbirds and a hedgehog. Although, I do think the hedgehog is feasting on the snails feasting on the bird food.

So what is coming up next? Yes, a house mouse! Maybe the choice is not that obvious to some of you, as I already made a mouse once. That was Trin, a forest adventurer mouse. Mouse-3This house mouse will be a classic Popke, one without clothing and accessories.

I really indulged myself making the mouse sketches, could not stop with one but made many. At the moment I am working on the body, the head is almost finished. I never expected a mouse head to be very complicated to design but that was a wrong assumption! Getting those curious and daring features of my mice was not easy. Maybe that is because I got to know them so well.

Mouse-1The following weeks I will work on this pattern and hope to release it soon. I’m also working on updating all my patterns to a new and better standard. The improved patterns have a different font, the difficult colour changes are written colour coded now and I have improved the text. Some of you will receive a lot of emails from Craftsy about the updated patterns, sorry about that.

Have a lovely start of summer!
