It’s no secret that I’m smitten with Scandinavian design… GreenGate, Tilda and Maileg are amongst my favourites.
Australia is a whole world away from Denmark, so anything Maileg is both hard to get and very expensive…
But I love the pure whimsy of their fabric toys, so I decided to set about making some of my own.
My little mouse isn’t exactly the same as the Maileg mice, but she has the same naivety that we love about this brand.
I made her from linen fabric and gave her sweet pink ears and an embroidered nose.
Next came a pale pink linen nightdress and a pretty patchwork quilt from Tilda fabrics.
And a wire bed for her to sleep in.
I don’t mind telling you, that simple wire bed took ten times longer to make than my little mouse…. but so worth it!
I suspect this is the first of many new ‘whimsy’ pieces and I plan to share all the patterns with you too.
Goodnight and sweet dreams,
