Mary Mouse is off to visit her friend Jane who is the daughter of the local Postmistress.
Because it is a little blustery today, she has decided to wear her checked gown with the warm velvet bodice and long sleeves, perfect for a day like today. Her petticoat with the red embroidered hem will keep those draughts at bay!
She is wearing her matching poke bonnet with its rather splendid rosette and pearly button, and carrying her little matching bag.
How she hopes Jane has baked a delicious Pound cake as she did the last time she visited!
Mary is made from silver grey velvet and white cotton, and her eyes, nose and stuffing all comply with UK safety standards.
Her clothes are made from cotton and cotton velvet, with ribbon and lace trims with a pearl button on her bonnet. Her bodice is fastened with tiny buttons.
She would make a lovely gift for an adult or older child but is not intended for use as a toy so should not be given to younger children.
She is approximately 9 inches tall.
My mice dolls are inspired by a Regency Mouse Doll (Rebecca) that I made from a kit when I was a teenager.
She stood on my Mother's dressing table, being loved and treasured for many years until Mum passed away.
Remembering how much I had enjoyed making her (at the time she was entirely hand-sewn without the aid of a sewing machine), I began to search the internet to hopefully buy the kit again.
Unfortunately, I discovered that the company that made it went out of business many years ago and there is nothing like her available these days. So, with trembling hands, I began to take apart the now very delicate mouse. I managed to do this with very little damage and made a pattern from the pieces. Luckily, I was also able to successfully put her back together again afterwards!
Mum would be so pleased to know that Rebecca now stands on my sewing table for me to look at every day, just as she used to do!
