JN325 • Plumed Peacock Mouse
Mouse on a Tin Limited Edition Series I

SOLD OUT TO SHOPS  -   Click here for list of Where to Buy Shops

Plumed Peacock Mouse is the first in our new Limited Edition Series Mouse on a Tin, (The peacock appears as our logo on everything we publish, so he gets to go first.)   He is all decked out in peacock feathers stitched with DMC in vibrant shades of blue, green and royal purple with touches of Kreinik 002 #4 Braid.  Frosted teal beads and 22 KT gold hex beads add sparkle.  His topknot is fashioned from a turquoise flower bead topped with a fancy gold sequin and teal bead.

All mice in this series will be magnetized!  We have glued a strong gold magnet to the back of our signature button base.  When finished, the mouse will sit firmly on the tin, even if held upside down.  Really!

The tin measures 2” in diameter.  The label on the top of the tin features a gorgeous circle of peacock feathers, and the rim is decorated with coordinating blue satin scallop trim.

A tiny (just 1 ¼” square) frayed edge Peacock Needlebook fits inside the tin.  The needlebook is stitched in the same blues and greens with a gold Painted Peacock Bead attached in the center.  Cream felt on the back holds
1 or 2 needles inserted on the diagonal. 

Mouse and Needlebook are stitched on 32 CT Weeks “Linen” linen.  It is important to use this count of linen so that everything fits.  All of the mice and needlebooks in the series will use this color and count of linen.

Design area for the mouse is 29H X 57W, design area for the needlebook is 19H X 19W.

The kit includes color cover and all instructions for stitching and finishing plus the decorated tin, gold tail, beads, gold sequin, flower bead, painted peacock bead, cream felt and the magnetized button for the base.  Stitcher will need to provide 2’ X 2” fusible interfacing for the needlebook and stuffing for the mouse.
