This is Suzie one of my favourite creations. When Suzie was developed I was moving away from the knitted creatures I had created previously, and had also bought myself a new toy of a super-duper sewing machine, so needed something to make on it. I knew I wanted to make some larger toys but didn’t have any patterns. After some serious thinking, a flick through some of my favourite sewing and illustrated character books and a few cups of herbal tea I came up with the idea for Suzie.
After raiding a few high street shops I came home armed with a million socks, tights, bits of felt and fabulous patterned fabrics and I was ready to begin. A few hours, and several revisions later Suzie was born; she’s about 30cm tall and sporting a nice summery dress.
I love this pattern so much that I now can’t stop making mice! Watch this space for some more incarnations of this pattern.
