Miniature Felted Mouse, Miniature Painted Bird

This week I made another tiny needle felted harvest mouse who I named Maggie. I made her dress out of antique lace and I had some vintage 1920s sequins trim that I attached for her tiara.

Here is the reason she is named Maggie....

When harvest time is over, she has her own special harvest - She collects antique beads and lace, and makes dresses and tiaras out of them. She loves to sew, and she loves anything shiny. This is how she got the name Maggie, because she is like a little Magpie :)

I've also been painting  - a lot. I haven't mentioned my painting on this blog, because here, I concentrate on needle felting. But I do have some of my paintings in my Etsy shop. Today I finished painting a miniature art canvas of a blue tit bird in acrylic. I LOVE painting!

Here is the blue tit miniature painting.....

  1. Maggie's face is so sweet and I love her dress!

    Your painting is lovely! Your brush strokes have really made the feathers look soft and fluffy. Luckily I have an 'art' board on Pinterest!
