I added a few fox pouches and House pillows to the shop last week! Stop by and take a peek. They would make some pretty sweet Christmas gifts for someone….. or yourself. ;) The shop will be open through December 6th or 7th and you can use the code HAPPYHOLIDAYS2014 for 20% off your order. Thanks so much for your awesome support!
I saw the fox tutorial on a beautiful mess a couple weeks ago and just had to try it. Such a great simple softie to make.
I grabbed some Denyse Schmidt Houndstooth from Joanns in a lovely two toned orange and got to work. The tutorial gives you the basic shape of the fox, but you draw your own actual pattern. This is fun to me because it gives it a little more originality. I used felt for the nose and eyes instead of buttons since most of the time I make the softies for kids and don’t want any choking hazards.
I dug into my vintage doiles and pulled out this lovely yellow one to use as her belly. I quite like it.
I highly recommend you try the tutorial out. Especially because it yields such cuteness for not a lot of work. This little fox is heading out as a surprise for a little someone. :) I have three more all sewn up waiting to be stuffed and sent to some little friends.
I just want to express, all opinions are mine, I was not asked to review this tutorial. I also only make items like this as gifts, not to resale.
