Fox Lovey Pattern Tour & Giveaway!

Fox Lovey

When I was asked by Emily of Tangible Pursuits to be part the pattern tour for her new Fox Lovey pattern I was thrilled. Who can resist making such a cute little friends for your loved ones?

Fox Lovey Pattern Tour

I decided to make two foxes (one each for Seb and Pen) and thought it would be fun to try adding a fabric with a pattern to the mix. For the overall body I used a rusty-brown velour. The underside of the blanky and for the white sections  I selected a soft quilting cotton for each fox. The pattern does not use much fabric at all so I have plenty of leftovers since I purchased a yard of each cotton.

Fox LoveyMaking the foxes was a breeze and a fast project. Besides being a great addition to a loved ones menagerie of “friends”, it would also make for a great last minute handmade gift.  I had never made a 3d “head” before but the instructions were so clear that I had no issues despite it being my first time. After I had cut the velour for the blanket portion I noticed that one of the pieces had an obvious flaw. Since I used the velour for two foxes I did not have enough leftovers to re-cut one of the squares so I improvised a heart applique to cover the booboo. This inspired the addition of bow details and me dubbing my creations as “Mr and Mrs Fox”.

    Oh my these are adorable! I especially love Ms Fox with the heart patch. Love it when a flaw turns into an opportunity!

    They are such a cute couple! I love the accessories and the way you positioned the ears a little differently – it gives them each their own personality.

    Oh this his&her set is adorable! i love how you added the fun patterns to them as well, they look so sweet!
