The 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. This 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.
The 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!

What a little darling! Can’t wait to see your finished design. If you ever decide to make another cat, it will have to be a very friendly one so it doesn’t scare all the little rodents and birds!
Oooh! Another little Popke! Your sketch is adorable, Sonja and I can’t wait to see your little mouse pattern. I will try to be patient, honestly!
Thank you! I will make another cat soon and no worries, all Popkes are friends!
Just like you two!!
