Yet another workshop was sucessfully completed over two weekends (7 & 4 July 2015). We had great company this time round. Attending the Make a Mouse workshop were Chio, Evelyn and Winnie.
As all three of them have made Teddy bears before, it was not too difficult for them to pick up making a mouse. In fact, it can be considered as a refresher course as they did back stitching, ladder stitching and other techniques learned previously.
Even so, they were excited to work on a new pattern as they had never made a mouse before. Some new things they learned included how to make the wired mouse tail, sewing the ears onto the head of the mouse, as well as sewing the whiskers onto the cheeks of the mouse.
The 3 of them were able to pick up quickly without much assistance. Wayne showed them how to improve the stuffing for the mouse's head as having a firmly stuffed head would give the mouse a nice embroidered nose.
After they have completed their mice, everyone gathered to have a group photo taken to mark the successful completion of the workshop.
We want to thank Chio, Evelyn and Winnie for their support and participation in this event. We do hope to see you again in the near future!
