Just Nan Gingerbread Mice – 2 – assembling the three cute cross stitch mice

I’m ready to make up these three little gingerbread mice figures from Just Nan  now- Santa mouse, Jingle mouse and Angel mouse.

These are the three stitched designs, cut out with a half inch seam allowance around each one.

The side seam is stitched up, and then the seam allowance around the base is turned under.

The body is stuffed with some wadding, and then gathered around the base to close it up. The metal button is then slip-stitched onto the base to weight it and provide a stable area so that the mouse stands up. You put the curved metal ‘tail’ into position just before completing the slip-stitching of the button into place.

Here is the first completed mouse, Santa mouse, with his little hat on, and bag of goodies. Isn’t he lovely?

This is what he looks like from the back.

And here’s all three of them completed. They each stand about two inches high – they are tiny!

This is what I made them for – to ‘populate’ my gingerbread village of Victoria Sampler buildings:
