SOLD INDIVIDUALLY - Please state which colour of thread and button you would like when ordering.
This little mouse was inspired by Beatrix Potter's story, 'The Tailor of Gloucester'.
A little white polymer clay mouse with black onyx eyes is perched on top of a small cotton reel wound with thread. She's holding a matching button and a threaded needle. Because she's so keen on sewing, she's also holding a tiny cotton reel in her tail!
The total height of the sculpture is just over 6cm (2.4 inches). The cotton reel (and the tiny cotton reel in her tail) is made from wood, and the needle is a filed silver plated eye pin. The button is plastic or resin. The mouse is permanently fixed to the cotton reel.
Little Sewing Mouse comes in a smart presentation box with a signed certificate of authentication, and will be sent safely by first class post within the UK. Orders outwith the UK are sent by normal airmail, although a tracked and insured service is available for an additional charge (please contact me for more information).
Because each Little Sewing Mouse is made entirely by hand, each one will be a little different.

I bring every wee creature to life with love, care and joy, and I so enjoy meeting each one as they appear from the clay. I spend a lot of time preparing and finishing the clay to ensure a pristine finish. I hand-blend the clay to mix colours (I don't use paints), and I also create all my own millefiori canes to achieve the perfect finish. All accessories held by the mice, like the roses and balloons, are also made with the same care and attention to detail. I use semi-precious black onyx beads for the eyes, and where necessary, I use wire armature to strengthen the paws and tail. Most wee creatures have a matt finish because I think it's more tactile, but some, like the moles and snails are finished with gloss or satin varnish to enhance the patterns and colours.
Each wee creature has its own personality, charm and character and is truly a miniature masterpiece. You can be assured that each Quernus creation is made with love and will make you smile.
