My Tiny Teapots

At the Name National Convention banquet, we get to exchange table favors.
For my exchange I decided to try my hand at Christel Jensen's mouse teapot tutorial on you tube.
This photo shows my first attempt (pathetic), second (better, eyes a little buggy) and third.
Number four and five (still trying to improve)
six and seven (I thought I would add a flower on the teapot spout)
Not bad. Having so much fun!
eight and nine (let's turn the mice into little girls....add a fancy hat...make the teapot spout look like a bouquet of flowers) they remind me of Precious Moments figurines. Cute.

Ten and Eleven ( how about teddy bears...noses too big as well as the watering cans....will have to work on those) They have bows and flowers on their heads.

Twelve and Thirteen (back to little girls...I curved the hats up and added ribbon, and flowers.)
I actually like these.
I need to work on the scale. These measure about 1" tall.

My progression of teapots.
What a challange. I can't wait to make more! I guess I should design a room box around my teapots...maybe a tea shop.
Please leave a comment telling me your favorite one.
Mini Hugs,
Donna

I am so impressed that you kept at it to produce so many .... and are willing to do more. I think each idea is cute but I think the little girls are my favorite.

My faves are 8, 9, 10 and 11- I couldn't pick just one! They are adorable- I like where you made the spout a flower :) Very nice job!
