Mini Sweater

I've been reading a little of this lately.
The tale is all about a knitting mouse-mama

who makes her daughter...wait for it,
Yes. A sweater.

It's quite sweet and the illustrations are lovely.

And it includes patterns for a mouse,
 a sweater for the mouse
and a big kid sweater.

Nu has a treasured doll and I thought
I'd try and make her "Sho-Sho" a sweater.

Sho-Sho has a big-head thing happening,
so I went to town on the hood.

Knowing in my heart that Nu
would never tolerate a change in Sho-Sho's perfection.

These little buttons found the perfect home.
(Thanks Shivo!)

But as suspected, Nu ripped the sweater
off of all the dolls we tried to clothe.

Next to take a stab at the big girl version.


  1. Nu knows that those dolls get too hot in that lovely sweater--it's not winter any more.

  2. So, I don't know if this counts, but I didn't see a comment section on your giveaway, so I'm leaving it here. (That sweater is insanely cute, by the way!)
    I love your wall art. It would be amazing in my little girls' room.
    My favorite cookbook is actually Betty Crocker. I know I'm lame, but it's simple and real recipes that my family enjoys.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
