Amazing Craft – Sewing Jackson Mouse Kit
Amazing Craft’s kit to sew JACKSON MOUSE contains all of the materials you need to sew Jackson, a cute, little, 12cm mouse made from traditional toy making materials and using traditional toy making methods*.
Jackson is made from top quality German mohair, has glass eyes and is jointed (moveable arms, legs and head!) and can be made using a sewing machine or by hand sewing. 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.
The Jackson kit contains mohair and wool felt for the paw pads and ear inserts but you can also re-use the pattern and make him from a fabric of your choice (non-stretchy fabrics work best with this pattern). The kit also includes a little steel weighting which makes him feel adorable in the palm of your hand when completed.
We were delighted to have ‘Sum of their Stories’ review our kit and you can read their thoughts and photos here.
