Ratafia, the mouse and his friends : learning little cabin-boy!
Here the next episod of the story of the Capt’ain Moustache and his imaginary boat !
So, I had to find some people who could decently replace the rabbits! I did not have need to seek very far… I’ve few rats squatting in my flour bag, , with one’s feet up! I told myself, with a cat as boss, they would certainly be less attraction-seeker!!!
I present you Ratafia (on the right), the “Marquis” (because of his hat and his mustache) and “Mi-Cahouete” (because she loves peanuts!) : the news cabin-boys of the Cap’tain Moustache (in french, cabin-boy is translated by “mousse” and that’s so similar with the english word “mouse”! funny, isn’t it )
This way for the galley!

I can tell you they keep low profile on deck!
The other day, Ratafia is fooling around, and croc! the tomcat who’s his cap’tain bite his hass to remember him who is the boss! Now, Ratafia watch his step- and wear a nice bandage on his back!
Believe me, it’s hard sometimes to be a rat!
In addition, to crown it all, this poor Ratafia has problems with his love life! Can you believe it : the Marquis bow and scrape to his beloved Mi-Cahuète! (ok, this demandsa little of practice when you have a wood leg!)!
Ratafia would be happy to curl his mustache to this boor, but he’s too afraid to be catch by the Capt’ain!
One bite, that’s enough!
If it is like that, Ratafia get console himself in Aline’s arms – even if she’s not always gentle with him!
Poor little budding Pirat!
I invite you next week to met this jolly fellows! The pattern and his tutorial would be available on monday (if everything is going good!) and you would be able to sew, you too, one of this little rat/mouse!
I would initiate for this time 3 news things : until now, only the pattern will be avalaible (for the sewing-kit, I have a problem with the leather string quantity!), the pattern would be avalaible either in english (yes M’am) et I will try Etsy for selling goods!
In the meantime, I will gladly have a nap too!!
Chuuuut! Don’t tell it to the Capt’ain!
