A good friend of mine was chatting with me last week. She was teasing me about the lack of a mouse pattern in my Keyring book. She couldn’t quite believe I had missed out this cutest of animals.
She really needed to make a mouse as a present and undeterred she took the head of Archie dog and elongated the pattern to make a body and then took the ears of the kitten to create a beautiful little mouse.
For many people this is how designing begins – creating a design from different pattern elements when you have failed to find it elsewhere. It has got me thinking perhaps I should design a little mouse keyring in the next few weeks.
