Brave Aviator Mouse Kit Giveaway

by Helen on August 21, 2012

aviator mouse kit

These Aviator Mice have proved to be amazingly popular, so I have decided to put some kits together – and have a giveaway too!  It’s not always easy to source exactly the right materials for a project like this – especially if you want to use vintage fabrics, such as the woollen blanket I’ve used in these photos, so these kits will make it much easier – leaving you to enjoy the fun of creating your very own Aviator Mouse.

I don’t normally offer kits, and won’t be putting together more than a dozen or so of the Aviator Mouse kits, so if you’d like one then please don’t leave it too long before you order as when they’re gone – they’re gone!  You can find them in my softies section – just click here to visit their page.   Sorry Aviator Mouse kits sold out.

I’ve held one of the Brave Aviator Mouse kits back for a giveaway ….. to enter please just leave a comment below telling me the mouses’ (or should that be mice’s?) names.  As availability is limited, if you want to make sure of a kit then please purchase one and if you are the winner of the giveaway then I’ll refund the purchase price.  

The winner will be chosen by random selection and the draw will close at midnight on Friday (BST).  I will post worldwide.  

Good luck everyone!!

That’s easy! It would be Sky King and Penny. When I was a child this was one of my favorite TV shows about a pilot and his sidekick Penny. As an adult I met my own Sky King and I am still his sidekick 34 years later!
Love those mice and I definitely need to make these!

I remember that show too. Wow I thought I was the only “kid” that remembered Sky King… My Daddy is a Pilot too.

I remember loving the Sky King show at a child. Glad to see I am not the only one who remembers it. I would love to make these ornaments. I’d hang them from my ceiling christmas tree.

Hi Helen!

These mice are too cute for words! Full of adventure and cheeky too! I would call the one in the red scarf Fergal and the white scarf wearing mouse would be Golly. :)

Hoping I win one … there’s a spot on my desk just waiting to be filled with someone adorable! ♥

My 4 yo grandson call’s his new little sister Nattie, short for Natalie. It just suits her. So looking at the mice I think Nattie suits one just fine. The other should be Zek, after my other grandson Ezekiel. You do such beautiful work. Thank you for sharing your talents.

One should be named Tiny after Georgia ‘Tiny’ Broadwick, the first woman to jump from an aircraft, and Chuck after Chuck Yeager who flew a P-51 Mustang (which looks very similar to your mice’s planes! LOL) in WWII here in England and later became a test pilot.

Your mice look like intrepid explorers so deserve to be namesakes of adventurers. ;-)

Thank you, they remind me of AirVenture (the world’s largest air show) which just ended here.

The mice are so cute, and brave to be little pilots. As soon as I saw them I knew it was Lord Fairwell ( the older chap with grey scarf) and his nephew Kitt. They flew many a mission during WWI….saved countless! Oh I could go on, but maybe now is not the time.

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) August 21, 2012 at 10:35 pm

The one in the red scarf looks fearless so I would name him Fergus the Fearless. The other mouse looks daring so I would name him Donald the Daring. For some reason they both seem male to me so that’s why I wentwith the male names. They are would be truly inspirational for some child’s imagination (even a big child)!

I was an Air Load Master on VC10s in the RAF and my husband was in the RAF too.
Ive always admired the women who flew way back, when it was far more hairy and not considered a womens job!! The likes of Amy Johnson, Amelia Earhart and Beryl Markham fascinate me still.
The women who flew the bombers to airfields for the wartime pilots to take on elsewhere and all the male barnstormers who took to the skies after being taught to fly to fight, but then found they had no job when they came back from the war.
So…………..Id name the devil may care mice…….
Amy and Denys………….
after Amy Johnson and Denys Finch Hatton who was Karen Blixens last love…….
They are delightful, your so gifted and what you create is always beautiful!
