Create a fun little vintage pin-keep for your sewing pins or special hat pins. All you need are some very basic sewing skills, such as basic hand sewing, and sewing a straight stitch. We’ll be creating a mohair Miss Mousey, with all the little sweet details such whiskers, ears, hands and toes, and a Miss Mousey tail. She’ll be standing ready to keep watch over all your little pins.
We will also make a soft pin cushion which you can set right inside a little vintage tea cup or vintage creamer.
Pam will also be showing you how common everyday house products and a large needle will help you create this whimsical and adoring little mouse pin keep. The little tips and tricks for creating details too. You will have fun exploring how simple and often discarded odds and ends can be used as the base for your creativity.

Hi I’m Pam Gracia. I started “Soft in the Head” back in 1997 as a way to keep myself busy and out of trouble, and it was cheaper than a shrink. What started out as a hobby due to my love of all things primitive and rag dolls has turned into a booming pattern business and the home of some pretty hilarious characters.
“Soft in the Head” has been published in such magazines as “Better Homes and Gardens”, “Art Doll Quarterly”, “Prims”, “Doll Collector”, “A Primitive Place” and “Country Sampler”. Through the years “Soft in the Head” has become a member in juried groups such as EHAG and PFATT and also an artist for the amazing Halloween event “Ghoultide Gathering”. Recently my husband and I have had the honor of becoming the new owners of the online market “PFATT Marketplace” which has been running strong for 14 years.
I love “Primitive” soft sculpture and over the years I have discovered my own unique style by combining whimsical with primitive…like to call it “Primsical”. I hope by taking my class I can share this with each one of you and help you find that “primsical” spirit inside. Mice are one of my favorite characters to create since they seem to thrive on whimsy! www.softinthehead.com
