Christmas Mice




These are a couple of Christmas ornaments that I made.
I finished them a couple of months ago but they were for a gift so I couldn't show them.
I wanted them to be a surprise :o)

The mice are about 3" and made out of a wonderful upholstery velvet.
They are based on some vintage ornaments that I have.
(The mice also have tiny whiskers that don't show up in the photos and their collars are ribbon and beads)

These were such a joy to make. They were one of those projects that just went together like a dream. They didn't come out like I had planned but I really like the way they turned out.

(They pictures are not very good. The color is a bit off - but what else is new. Someday I will learn to take a good picture LOL)
