Actually I wanted to crochet a gray mouse, but then I decided to make my mouse with the color ecru. Now I had to decide about the colors for the dress, and I thought that gray with a contrasting color looks quite well.
I was afraid, that this looks a bit boring, but since the mice are striped with bright colors, I did not want to add too much color.
The mouse girl got two different dresses, a headband and a pair of shoes. On picture 1 and 2 you can see the clothes from the pattern of the Flower dress and on the third picture you can see the Sunday dress.
I call it Sunday dress because it reminded me that I was always dressed nicely as a child on Sundays. I did not like that, because I could not run around wild and had to look after my clothes, which was difficult for me.
First I crocheted a pair of pants and a jacket for the mouse boy. Then I crocheted a cap for him, but it looked a bit strange and that’s why he also got a headband.
Here you can see all the clothes for the mice:
This sweet mouse made Nina. She crocheted it as a present for a little boy and I’m sure he’ll be very happy about it.
If you also want to show your mouse on my blog, just send an e-mail with your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org

I end this post with the words of Omar Khayyam, who was a Persian mathematician, astronomer and poet:
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
