The Cactus Mouse Doll and Accessories
Now you can make your own Agosia Arts Doll! Even better, this one is for the kids. These items are available as print-on-demand fabrics from You can choose the type of fabric you want, from silk to canvas. For immediate shipment, jump over to Etsy where I have pre-printed panels of cotton poplin ready to go out.

Cactus Mouse is a sweet little rodent who is ready for just about anything! It is up to you to decide if your toy is a boy or girl; the only difference is whether you decide to make a skirt or a cape for dress up. The included fabric book has pictures of everything Cactus Mouse likes to eat. When our favorite mouse is finished reading, s/he can stow the book in her/his handy backpack, sit next to a prickly pear cactus stuffie and contemplate her/his next adventure.
