Introducing the Tuppenny Mice!
We have a very sweet collaboration for you! We've teamed up with Rebecca Baxter from 'A Stitch In Time Malvern' to bring you the supplies kit to make her hand stitched Tuppenny Mice. At just 7cm high, these little mice are the perfect gift to tell someone you love them or that you think they're a star.
Rebecca has had a lifetime obsession with sewing and making, inspired and encouraged by her wonderful mum. Together they started selling their creations at craft fairs. There they noticed that the teeny cute things sold best, so started working on designs for little mice. She wanted them to stand up by themselves and be easy to dress and after a lot of trial and error she finally created a pattern she was happy with and the Tuppenny mice were born. The mice went on to became a bit of a sensation at craft fairs – they were immediately bestsellers and have remained so ever since.
Rebecca's Tuppenny Mice have popped up in many and varied places, from school classrooms and special mouse houses to the top of celebration cakes and, best of all, (since she is a Jane Austen fan), a pair of Tuppenny Mice in Regency costume now live in the National Trust Jane Austen House Museum!
Realising that others may also enjoy making these little mice, Rebecca now sells PDF patterns for them in her Etsy shop. When she contacted me to see if we could work together to make crafting these easier, I was delighted to be involved. We've put together all the 100% wool felt, DMC threads and felt shapes to make 2 sweet mice - one with a heart and one with a star. They are quick and satisfying to make and would be the perfect gift for Valentine's or Galentine's Day! 💖
