Amazing Craft – Sewing Jackson Mouse Pattern

With the Amazing Craft’s pattern to sew JACKSON MOUSE you can create a cute, little, 12cm mouse using traditional toy making methods*.

Jackson looks great made from mohair and is made using glass* eyes and is jointed (moveable arms, legs and head!) and can be made using a sewing machine or by hand sewing.   Although he looks great made from mohair, any non-stretch or woven fabrics will work well with this re-usable pattern.  The 14 page instruction booklet has clear guides to guide you through the entire process and is supported with our online videos should you prefer a more visual way to learn.  Add a little steel weighting into his legs and tummy and he will feel truly adorable in the palm of your hand when complete!


Materials you will need:-

.     25cm deep x 23cm wide piece of mohair (a fat quarter will be plenty) or a woven fabric with little stretch (e.g. cotton)

.     Cotton or polyester sewing thread to match your fabric

.     1.5m extra strong thread (used for the head joint & eyes)

.     15g polyfibre stuffing

.     60g steel weighting

.     10cm brown 2mm thonging (tail!)

Equipment you will need:-

.     A sewing needle

.     A stuffing tool, haemostats or a chopstick!

Stitches used:-

Skills needed:- 

To complete this project, the maker will need to be able:

*Because this kit contains glass eyes, it is not suitable as a toy.  If, however, you want to make it suitable  as a toy, you can replace the eyes with safety eyes or simply embroider them on.
