3D quilled mouse toy

Mouse, three-dimensional quilling

I have a lot of new creations to show, but no time to post :( Despite this, I'll try to blog as much as I can. This mouse was made as a gift for friends who like mice of all kinds :) The design is based on the one from "Quilling: Techniques and Inspiration" by Jane Jenkins (this is one of the best books on quilling I've seen so far, by the way). The mouse is about 2cm (7/8 inch) long without the tail, the paws are made from narrow strips (half the regular 1/8'' width). The wheat ear is real, not quilled :)

Unfortunately, I can't create a tutorial on this mouse. Try looking for something similar in quilling books and magazines, but I think the best way for you will be to learn the principles of 3D quilling. "Three-Dimensional Quilling: Making Characters" by Jane Jenkins can be a good start.
