The Shelfie Mouse sewing kit is a great introduction to sewing felt with an added dimension. The clever design doesn't involve lots of complicated panels - a carefully drafted back adds easy volume to this little mouse, which is then stitched to a flat base. The Shelfie Mouse is perfectly balanced to sit happily on a flat surface, or even on a shelf with it's little feet hanging over the edge.
The kit includes our fantastic, comprehensive guide to sewing with felt, along with all the materials for the project. You'll just need to make sure you have some sharp scissors, and a pen or pencil to trace the pattern onto the 'freezer' paper. This fabulous paper then adheres to the felt with the heat from your iron, enabling stress-free felt cutting.
We think beginner adults and children aged 12+ will be able to sew the Shelfie Mouse. As with all our projects, if you buy for a child please be prepared to offer guidance, and perhaps with this one help out with some of the cutting.
The kit contains:
Wool and viscose blended felt in three shades
Matching DMC embroidery threads on our cute Dachshund thread organiser
A needle and pins
A stick on nose template for stitching over
Freezer paper to enable easy and accurate felt cutting
A printed pattern
Step by step project instructions
