Winter Mouse Scissor Roll
Limited Edition 2021

This is the fourth and final design in our series called Mouse on a Roll (MOAR).  All scissor rolls in the series are the same size, and each features a guardian mouse.  The rolls are designed to hold 3½” or 4” scissors of your choice.

Each of the mouse garden scenes on the outside of the roll features a mouse and a moment in a winter garden.  Look for a cardinal at a feeder with icicles overhead; a mouse in an evergreen tree behind a wooly sheep (someone left their boots outside); a very happy snowman welcoming snowflakes, and a mouse peeking out of a green wreath on a blue door.  Snowflakes separate the scenes which are grounded with snowy patterns of blue and white. The scenes are embellished with icy blue beads.  A single white pearl marks the closure.  Inside, 3 little helper mice push their way through the snow to a little warm house - the padded pocket for the scissors.  Find a fourth mouse inspecting a pincushion and spools of thread in the sewing room window!  The verse: “It’s cold outside, scissors stay inside!”

Use DMC floss and Kreinik 032 #4 Braid to stitch the roll as one long piece on Zweigart 32 CT Raw Belfast Linen. Form a scissor pocket with the overdyed wool backing, sew on a snap and roll it up!  Four mouse garden scenes will show on the outside, the path to the scissors and verse will be inside and your scissors will stand at attention in the middle.  Place Freezia Mouse on top of the roll to guard the scissors.

Complete finishing instructions for the roll and the mouse are in the Stitch Guide.
