with a little hitch hiking mouse!
The Butterfly wings are hand stitched Shibori wool fabric, dyed in Indigo,
with a Mohair body, wrapped wire legs
and hand stitched embroidery.
Mouse hitch hiker is made from wool fabric
with wire wrapped paws, and lots of stitching.
The butterfly is based on the common blue butterfly,
which uses its darker underwings to protect itself from harm
and the bright blue to attract a mate.
The little mouse even has a scarf made from
my hand dyed fabric to keep him warm on his night ride.
I've been working on this one for a while
and I am so happy with how he turned out.
Pog is still working on a better base for him
and then he will be ready to fly to wherever he may desire to go on a night ride.
