Sheep in wolves clothing.

 Such lovely comments on my post rat attack thank you all. With so many of you saying how cute you though Mr rat was I was a bit worried about posting him fully dressed. 

 He was never meant to be cute. He a plague doctor rat. I made the rat to be a life like as is possible and now he's dressed in his felt cloak, tri corner hat and plague doctor mask.  Sorry the pictures aren't the best.

I remember learning about the plague in primary school and the pictures of the plague doctors with their strange masks scared me something silly then and i still find them creepy now.
 This rat is the first a new range of my amigurmi called sheep in wolves clothing. The idea came from the talented artist Alex Copley .  I'm really enjoying the creative process with these slightly sinister amigurumis.


  1. I'm sorry you didnt mean for him to be cute, but omg, he is sooooo darling!

  2. I love this! The idea of a rat plague doctor is right up my street! I always found those pictures of plague doctors really creepy too, and a rat would fit a plague mask perfectly!

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I love your designs and this sinister rat is...well...cute but in a creepy way.
