May Mouse: Head


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?
