Captain Jack Mouse....arrrrrrghhh
I started making these little pompom animals a little over a year ago after seeing a similar creator on Martha Stewart. Some of you might recognize them as Steiff once made them as well. A couple friends Susan and Mandy are JD nuts and their POTC obsession sorta triggered this in my head. LOL! That and finding a LONG lost pirate kit from Fibers by the Yard tucked into a fabric drawer in my closet. There was tons of fun stuff in there! and come on... lets not forget the correlation between POTC and a certain black mouse. ;) Seeee, not how could I NOT make him??!!
As always I seem to start something thinking I will do "simple" LOL...instead it goes straight to the OTT category quick. my mind was racing faster then my hands could stitch his tiny little clothes. I have ideas for other themes now too that I can't wait to try!
Rob is heading to sea soon so I will have a couple weeks all to myself to craft! The list is longer than time I have if I plan to keep the house not looking like a tornado hit! I can't wait until we move so I'll have a bit more room to spread out! 800sq-ft isn't cutting it!
More close ups are shown in my Etsy shop. I've bought so much there (under another screen name) but this is a new username for me to go along with *MY* first listing there. I have to say that their listing process is so much easier than eBay's ever has been. WOW!
