Mouse on a Tin Limited Edition Series I
Mouse and Needlebook are stitched on 32 count Weeks Dye Works “Linen” linen. It is important to use 32 count linen so that everything fits. All of the mice and needlebooks in the series will use this color and count of linen.
Due to hand-dyed linens being hard to source these days, we are offering Belfast 32 count Soft Ivory as the substitute.
Design area for the mouse is 29H X 57W, design area for the needlebook is 19H X 19W.
The kit includes color cover and all instructions for stitching and finishing plus the decorated tin, gold tail, beads, gold sequin, flower bead, painted peacock bead, cream felt and the magnetized button for the base. You will need to provide 2’ X 2” fusible interfacing for the needlebook and stuffing for the mouse.
