Fantastic Mr Fox (even if I do say so myself!)

September 20, 2012

This is my Fantastic Mr Fox.  I have been waiting for an opportunity to make him after seeing and adoring him in Fiona Dalton's book, Hop Skip Jump.  This is for a friend's baby boy.
He is made from a maroon velveteen and cream wool flannel.  I love wool flannel and I got mine from The Fabric Store on Brunswick Street.  His kerchief is made from a Denyse Schmidt print and his nose is a little felt ball I picked up at 'Wild Purl' in Point Lonsdale on a recent trip with friends.
Fiona's book is awesome,  I have now made Archie the cat and Eddy the mouse, Basil the bunny, Bird in the handKangaroo and JoeyMonkey Man and now Mr Fox!  I hope he is very well loved for years to come!

I am linking up with My Creative Space today.

    sleezey impression with the State system my website a payday advance can be a short-term, unsecured loan, made
