I SAIL !!!

Well…not ME exactly! I made a sailor mouse!

Have you ever seen the incredibly dumb hilarious movie, ‘What About Bob’? Bob has lots of summer vacation experiences and one of them is learning to sail! We always laugh at Bob tied to the mast of the sailboat, shouting,

“I SAIL…I’m a sailor!!!”

I’ve been in the sewing room creating MICE so everything sounds a little funnier to me now!

I wanted to try some different patterns and styles and so far I’ve used 4 different patterns.

Here’s the link for the pink and blue ones above.

They were easy and FUN!!!

And my most favorite of all?

This little sailor boy of course!

He made my mouse a sailor hat!

I’m joining Thrifty Things Friday!

Do you like mice, sailing or ‘What about Bob’?

Maybe we could form a club! hahaha!

The mice are adorable. Now that I am retired, I am looking for projects. I can see these little mice all dressed up for Christmas. Your TV looks great. I am a bit jealous that you found such a fab stand at a thrift store.

I have not seen that movie. Where have I been.

I seen a movie where there is those

govers all over the yard popping in and out. The guy is trying to catch them all.

Oh gosh when you hit 70 odd. It seems they say if you forget certain movies then go watch again and it will be a whole new total funny movie.

So perahps that is a fab idea.

Oh your mice are something crafty lady sewer.

Have not seen the movie as far as I recall. Love the mice, I had no idea you were so talented (and my favourite is the one who has a sailor's hat as well!).
Why mice? It is almost too funny today being International Kitty day!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

All of your mice turned out really cute! I like the sailor best too:@)

Linda Walker said...

Oh, I love your mice! That little sailor mouse is my favorite! Honestly there is nothing cuter than a mouse....I heard something rattling dishes in my kitchen sink one night last winter. I snuck into the room and caught the cutest little gray mouse with his butt up in the air and his head in my husband's ice cream dish. He was licking the dish!!!Though he wasn't welcome, he was certainly cute!

Sew what!

Hi Diane, Oh how cute. I love your sweet little mice. How fun and you are so creative. Love the sailing theme. I did see that movie and it's so funny.
Was thinking of you and wanted to stop by when I saw your comment at Diana's. Hope you are enjoying the end of summer. I'll be gone most of August and planning to be back to blogging in the fall.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

The Boston Lady said...

Be nice to mice! Because they are adorable. Can't pick a favorite, but that sailor hat sure made the sailor mouse stand out - okay I pick him. I like fake mice, not real ones and I can't really remember "What About Bob", but hey, good ole Bill Murray she has made me laugh alot over the years. What about Bill? Ann

Jeanne Baney said...

We have laughed over What About Bob many times! One of our favorite movies. The mice are adorable. Too many cute ones to choose a favorite. You do beautiful work!

Marivel said...

Bill Murray makes silly movies...sorry...
