(Edit: pattern is now available)
These are the Valentine wee mouses in tin houses for my two girls. They went kinda nuts over Alton so I had planned to make these for them after the Christmas craft craziness was over. The red Altoid tins lend themselves well to the Valentine theme. I thought since I was making more I might as well develop a PDF pattern for them for the shop, so hopefully it will be listed soon. They are quick to make with only scraps required. Fair warning to stockpile your Altoids tins.
Couple of other things too, while I'm writing:
- I received an email recently about the Craftcation Indie Business & DIY Conference and it sounds like a great time. Right up our alley, eh, Leigh Ann? It's in Ventura, CA, USA and it looks like there is a group discount for reserving your space early, so check it out. From their About page: "Craftcation is a three day indie business & DIY workshop conference. It’s a retreat to inspire, network and build upon the independent craft business community. Our objective is to ignite the entrepreneurial business spirit, strengthen skills and abilities of both seasoned business owners and newcomers to indie craft business. This is an opportunity to network, communicate and share with your peers."
- Also, if you are into wool felt (duh) and love winning free stuff (double duh), there's still plenty of time to enter the Felt On The Fly's Felty Hearts Challenge and win yourself a pile of gorgeous wool felt. See the details here and her flickr group here.
