May Mouse: Head

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m working the mouse head from the back towards the nose, so that the stitches lie on top of each other like fur does. I use short little stitches because mice have short little hair. I used longer stitches for the pink ear: see how it looks smoother and less furry? I’m also  trying to make the stitches look random to avoid lines (this mouse is not supposed to have stripes).  I might have to add a few extra stitches near the right eye. I think the color change wasn’t quite random enough, so it looks more striped than blended.

    I’ve been through this issue. He’s so small …perhaps you could try using a finer thread to achieve better blending?
