Brave Aviator Mouse Kit Giveaway

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! ♥

Batmouse and Robin!

Sorry, but that just popped into my head immediately…

They are very sweet 😉

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.

love the mouses!
they should be named Cheesy Mcsqueak and Cheshire ‘Red’ Liecester….brave aviators who love to come home to a nice cheese sandwich!

Reply

They look gorgeous and should have names that are vintage like their materials…..Lindy after Charles Lindbergh and Earhart after Amelia!

Reply

these are darling, I think “red leader” for the red scarfed fellow and “white knight “for the other

Reply

They are oh so delightful!!!

My vote for a name is Maverick the Mouse after the Top Gun movie!

Adorable. Thank you for the smiles.
Without question, their names must be Orville and Wilbur.

Oh what fun! These are quite the pair of dashing airedales. Looking for some name ideas, I found a informative website that gives Air Force slang words, so my selections are Bubba Birddog & Floyd Flathatting. Hope they can make the flight over the great pond to my house!

The first thought I had was for two little she mice:
-Ona Wing
-Ana Praer

Amelia and Charles gets my vote! My daughter is a pilot and just had a baby in May. These would make such a cute room decoration.

Because I live in Dayton, Ohio USA, I think the mice should be named Orville and Wilbur Wright. You could also call them Snoopy and the Red Baron. Oh my but they are so very cute.

They are absolutely fabulous! I have decided they are brave sisters called Nina and Simone after one of my favourite singers!

Reply

Love your mice! All of them are so cute! I like the name Charles Limburger. I think it’s a perfect name for a flying mouse. And for his little mouse spouse Amelia.

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. 😉

Reply

If I was lucky enough to win them, I’d definitely call them Atticus and Theopholus . Atticus is my sons name and Theopholus is his best friends name they are both so adventurous that it suits the little mice x

Reply

These brave brothers, Marty and Morris, look to be setting out on one of many adventures. What bedtime stories they will make!

Reply

When my son was a small boy, he had two pet mice he adored. They went everywhere with us (much to some folks’ alarm!) . Their names were “Monte” and “Carlo” …………… so, in their memory – Monte and Carlo it is!

Reply
Barbara Bruenning

My first thought,like others would be Amelia and Charles. Then, they also could be Minimus (Latin for small English Mouse) and Volaticus (flying).
Thank you, they remind me of AirVenture (the world’s largest air show) which just ended here.

Reply

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.

The cute little mousie in the blue winged airplane is Rubido (Ru – bee – dough) and the other mousie with the yellow striped wings is KC!

I would name them Biggles and Ginger as my husband is a huge fan of the Biggles books, a fearless aviator.

Reply

I just love these guy’s sooo cute… I would call them..

Ricky Rictoven and his sidekick Daring Danny

How fun, these would be sew neat to make!!!

Thanks Helen for such sweet softie critters to make. 🙂

Reply

Oh, if I could only think of some clever names for two special little mice…. let me see, how about Amille and Horatio Cloud-Dancer. Be especially blessed, Kathy

Reply

Yeager and Earhart
Piper and Cessna
Douglas and Martin (both names of airplane manufacturers)
Harrier and Hawkeye
The Lindburgers (Lindbergh and Limburger cheese)
Nike and Hermes

Once I started thinking about it they just started rolling. 🙂

I think they should be called Theodore and Penelope. How cute are they. job well done. Thankyou for the chance at winning a kit. Lynette.

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)!

Reply

Rupert and Millie immediately came to mind. No idea why… They’re lovely, as are all your clever creations!

Reply

How sweet are these, I’d love to make these for my nieces! I like the idea of naming one Amelia, but knowing my family, they’ll probably end up being called Squiggles and Mr. Mouse.

Reply

Up Up and away. These mice and their flying machines are lovely I do hope they have their flying goggles at the ready !!!

AMY & LOUIS
(Amy Johnson – first English woman pilot to fly from Britain to Australia and Louis Bleriot – first pilot to fly the channel)
I love them – going to have to make one for Liam!

Reply

Montgomery Mousekivitch (he is the more show-offy arrogant one) and Pierre Pompermaus (actually a far better pilot than Montogmery but always in his buddy’s shadow) 🙂

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!

Hi i think you should call them Amelia and Amy . I love them think i will have to purchase these….

Reply

I have a friend that lost her husband in February so one of the mice after him would be named Roger and since she is the mouse lover, not real ones, the other would be named Bernice after her. I would love to make one of these and give it to her as a gift.

Reply

These are amazing! I am not taking the chance of missing out on these and am ordering today! I think they should be called Beazle and Uncle Wiggly Wings.

Reply

OMG! I am in love with these mice… not that I collect mice, I just think they are adorable and your creations are the sweetest yet! The Name Game is not my strong card and many before me have chosen awesome names… I am liking Amelia and Wilbur.

Reply

I would name my mouse Limburger and my plane “The Spirt of St. Cheese”, This is darling! I would hang from the ceiling like a mobile

Reply

These darling mice and airplanes are definately adorable. I would love to hang one (or two!) from the ceiling over my desk! I think I would name them Braveheart and Mistral. Thanks for your lovely blog, patterns, fun posts on facebook, and this chance! Blessings from Shari in Kentucky

These mice are so adorable. Both my boys would love them. My 4 yr old thinks ‘sky captain’ is a good name for one. My 6 yr old likes ‘air mouse’ for the other.

Thank you for such a great giveaway

I’m state side so am unfamiliar with a lot of the names that are posted, not all but most. Wilbur and Orville is what comes to my mind when I see these cuties. Just love your blog and am so glad I found your site!!! Love everything about it and so enjoyed hearing you on your YouTube debute!! Being from Mississippi and the Deep South, your accent is music to our ears here! lol
Ben is a doll! Just a big ole teddy bear that breathes and eats!

I collect mice and would love to have these friends in my home! I think their names should be Charles (Lindbergh) and Amelia (Earhart)

I think these are just ADORABLE. Im heading towards names for the meeces’ (haha) of Limburger and Colby – they are cheese nibblers after all?
Congrats on always creating joy.

I think they are called Fievel and Tanya. (Love “An American Tale”) 😀

Janet Mitchell

I would call them Mortimer and Marcus purely as i think the names conjure up ‘tally ho, chocks away’

Reply

I”ll have to go with Charles and Amelia. My granddaughter wants to be Amelia Earhart when she grows up. And she’s only 5! she would love these!

Reply

I like Amelia and Wilbur.

Judith R’s idea of Click and Double Click is too funny!

Don’t ask me why this popped into my head but:

I think they should be named Tilley after my baby Grand Daughter who know lives with Angels in Heaven and her sister Lily who would love to fly up to meet her. Think they are soo cute, funny my nickname is mousey!!

Reply

So cute! I’d love one. I remember Sky King- was one of my favorite shows. I also love mice, thanks.

These are brilliant 🙂 I’m sure when I called out ‘Hey Mo, how are you?’, Ben turned to me and said, ‘He’s Mo, I’m Ben, Silly!!’
So i’m pretty sure they are Mo & Ben!

How gorgeous! I would name them ‘Molly Mouse’ and ‘Barnaby Mouse’ 🙂 🙂 Old fashioned, pretty names – & they sound like best friends too! Our little boy (2 1/4) is having a new bedroom & I’d be thrilled to make this up for him; he adores aeroplanes 🙂 (Please let me know if any further kits become available – thank you) xx
