Mollie Makes – sneak peek!

Maybe I should call this a ‘squeak peek’ instead!

I was thrilled when Mollie Makes magazine asked me to create three tiny mice for them. And very excited to offer you this little preview. The mice were such fun to make and even more fun to dress. I came over all nostalgic and longed for the days of dressing dolls and making mini things for my dolls’ house. Wait until you see the cute styling Art Editor Helena has done on the inside pages. (She’s kindly let me share the opening pages below.)

If you’d like to have a go at making the mice for yourself, the March issue of Mollie Makes hits UK shops on 16th February, or you can now buy a digital version too.

I do hope you love my meeces to pieces! Stop by again for a little bonus project I’ll have ready for you in a bit.

    Hi, i’m trying to find the pattern for the little knitted cardigan featured in the magazine? It says to look on this site for it but i can’t find it – can somebody please point me in the right direction?
    Thank you!

  10. Oh my goodness, we just ADORE your mice! Honestly, our whole team at Spoonful fell in love. We wanted to tempt you to enter our Easter competition and get your carrot on! You’d be amazing…

    I’m in So. Calif. and purchased Mollie Makes magazine, and couldn’t wait to make a little mouse. I Love it! I cut our 4 more yesterday.

    The pattern is great but I didn’t get the instructions for the mice, don’t know the size of the seams either….can I still get these?

  13. Did you handsew or use a machine? I’ve got the pattern from the Comic Relief issue of Mollie Makes and it doesn’t specify.

    The wee mice are wonderful, is there any way I can get a pattern ? I live in the USA ?

    • Barbara Warne if you search it is issue 11 and you can download the pattern to cut the pieces; unfortunately there are no instructions for size of seams and which bits to make first etc.
