These mice are absolutely adorable, so much detail to their faces and hats, and being 6 inches are not too tiny. I think these would look lovely as part of a halloween table display, with mini pumpkins and some black cats.

You can get them from in the dolls and miniatures section. Please have a look at  the artist's own website too for more primitive products and classes, for those nearby.

Hello new followers. Its good to have you around and I hope that you will return from time to time to see whats going on at Studio Stitches.

Tartan Teddies

This is my latest project and is great fun. The studio is a chaos of velvet, tartan and lace. Available to buy from These teddies in highland dancing dress are the newest in the range. (I only make the costumes). The waistcoats are finished with tiny silver buttons.


I don't know about you, but I find a white screen quite hard on mye eyes. I've tinted this one with a bit of pink to match in with the background.

Folksy Shop

I've started a Folksy shop because I have become bored with Etsy and Artfire. They have changed their emphasis from the crafters to their own commercialism. Both started out as sites for hand made items, with the crafter as their main focus. but clearly there are mass produced items for sale on both sites. Handmade should stand out in its own right. 

Its now time for me to support UK craft sites. The small team at Folksy are dedicated  to encouraging and keeping alive all types of craft forms from allover the world. 

Folksy's emphasis is on unique and small productions of items which really means that the buyer is getting something unique and handmade. In my opinion mass production and handmade do not sit well together. Handmade implies that time, skills and knowlege have been invested in the item. That the crafter is giving something of themselves to the item, a feature that mass production does not have, and as many crafters like to tell you, their item has been made with love. That makes it special. 

If you have never had a Folksy shop, then please give it a go, its inexpensive and you can sell as many items as you like.

Don't just stop at my shop, there are loads more to look at.
