September has arrived…

bringing with it, more wind and more rain. We had a lovely summer this year, I think it was a thursday some time in July between 1pm and 3.30pm. I think it’s officially autumn now. That means me beavering away at Halloween mice for now with the odd Christmas mouse thrown in.

Last week saw the creation of a Vampire or three…

Then of course there was ‘Adam’, Frankenstein’s monster and his bride. I’m a massive fan of classic horror from the 30s and 40s so it was a real joy to make the Elsa Lanchester version.

 

I really wanted to make a Halloween Trick or Treater but wasn’t sure how to go about it. I knew there had to be a pumpkin in there somewhere. So here is a little brown mouse waering a pumpkin costume, including the little lid and stalk as a hat. Don’t forget your bag for all the sweets!

 

Next on my list (yes, I’ve started writing lists) was a ‘Mummy’. He’s made of grey Harris Tweed and is wrapped in washed linen bandages with undyed silk wool rovings. He is even doing the perfect hands in front lumber…

Next on my list is Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street! Stay tuned 🙂

You can find all of these on my Etsy shop (link is on the left of the screen) or if there’s anything you’d like me to make, please let me know, I love a challenge!

Have a fabumouse week x
