Do you mean the seam allowance???
I do sew from the left side, seam allowance is 1mm. Because if you do more, you can`t turn the ears anymore.
The 1mm bead eyes are tricky as well. With 1mm difference the little sheep is cross eyed :-)
Greetings from a very wet and windy Germany,
Hi, my name is Oskar, the rallye mouse and I am a big boy, 5cm (1,9 inches) from food to ear.
I am made of miniature fabric and ultra suede and my five disc joints make me very flexible in my rallye car. With my 3mm glass eyes and can see the racecourse very clear.
The stylish sweater is handknitted with 0.8mm (UK 21) miniature knitting needles and I just love my tiny aviator cap.
My rallye car is made of a mint drops tin and it is very fast and comfy.
Would you like to start racing with me?? I am on Bearpile:
If you post a miniature sheep on a sugar cube, they can be just absolutely sweet!!
This is one of my newest miniature sheep, called "Moppelchen".
It is 1,7cm = 0,7" tall and made of plush and Ultra Suede, it has 1mm bead eyes and is filled with sheep wool.
A life without tweezers is possible but absolutely useless :-)
I hope this photo will make you smile...
This was my entry for the Golden George In Münster/Germany in April. Sadly I was not nominated but I am very proud of my work and I would like to know what you think about it.
The cake ist sewn from felt and has a diameter of 20cm (8"), all fruits and baisers are sewn as well, the blueberries are 1cm (0.4") in diameter.
All mice and bears are 5way disc-jointed. The tallest mouse is 8cm (3.2") and the smallest one is 4,5cm (1.8").
The busy bears which are carring the strawberry are 7cm (2.8").
Sweaters and hats are handknitted with needle size 0.8mm (UK 21) and pure wool.
I think this display gives you a summer feeling and the taste of strawberries :-)
So, what do you think?
Have a lovely weekend,

This gives you just the perfect summer feeling:
The little crab Eduard is made from Ultrasuede and measures just 3,5cm/1.3 inches.
His friends the clownfish are really tiny, they are just 1,5cm/0.6 inches.
The seagull is watching them, it is 2,5cm/1 inch tall and made from Vintage Rayon.
The whole shell is 7x4,5cm / 2.7x1.7 inches tall.
A single thread of cross stitch yarn is used to crochet the coral.
I just love it to make unusual miniatures :-)
Just 22 days to go until the Teddybear Total will open its doors to all bear addicts and arctophiles...
I was just wondering if some of you are planning to visit this great event????
Nearly 300 exhibitors will show their furry friends- and of course I will be there with my miniatures as well :-)
If you would like to have a closer look:
Looking forward to meet you in Münster :-)
