My sister asked if I would make a fox for my nephew for Christmas. He's been watching a fox in their backyard and calling him Mr. Fox. Even though Christmas is over 4 months away, I decided to start on the fox right away - I get excited about new projects.
Anyway, I love how he turned out. I usually make my little animals small and compact, but I wanted this guy to be really huggable. So he's long and floppy, and made of oh-so soft linen, stuffed with wool. I made him a simple little tie to make him more of a Mister.
I decided he'd make a great pattern, so I made a second one just to get all the details right. Consider this your pattern-giveaway head's up. I'm hoping to have it finished in the next few days.
