Old Mouse Name : Lizardie Date : 2008/05/06(Tue) 18:51 No.170 Russia, Italy |
I decided to make this mouse in order to check whether I designed the pattern properly. While I was working on the base of the body, I have found out that the pattern was not really what I expected it to be. So, I left the body lying in the corner and almost forgot about it. Once upon a time I have realized that I expect and demand too much from myself and from my toys. Everything have the right to exist, even though it does not seem to be perfect. I understood that if I devote my time to complete this awkward body, I will get the result anyhow. I got down to this work again and created the head and the paws, wrapped the silk thread round the wire of the tail. Then I have sewed her the blue peignoir, embroidered in the glittering thread, decorated the flowers with strass, and put on the Czech bead pendant. That's how this elderly fancy vintage-style mouse appeared. Maybe she also needs a little walking stick, but I am still not sure about it. The height of this doll is 10 cm, it was born in February 2008, lives in Pisa, Italy.

I quite I agree that in some countries it is really difficult to find nice materials for hobby and art, but I have realized, that one can make a really great doll from very simple materials. As for me, the idea itself and your love, patience and skills are more important than the quality of materials. I know people who are able to by the best materials and tools, but their works are not impressive at all.
So, good luck!

I think your mouse is charming! A walking stick would be nice, or a little umbrella.

I love this sad little old lady mouse. I would love to have the pattern for her, or even a ready made mouse. Would this be possible?

Wonderful! She's perfect! I find my dolls have a way of becoming who they are, not who I want them to be. Much the same as children. keep at it.

I do enjoy the way you have framed this ptcairular situation plus it does indeed offer me personally some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of what I have seen, I really trust when the actual feedback pack on that men and women stay on issue and not start upon a soap box involving the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this outstanding piece and while I do not concur with the idea in totality, I value the viewpoint.
