Revoluzzza that I just had to have as soon as I saw it. (there is an english version available). So very, very cute. I have had so many requests to make these from friends and family. My first I made in a hurry for a late swap. Made using an Op-shopped blanket, buttons and lace and beautiful Euro Fanalisto velvet fabric from Crafty Mamas.
I wanted to keep her for myself.
Unfortunately she has a few imperfections. Sewing little arms and things
with thick wovens is a nightmare so her thumbs were never turned out.
And I forgot to sew in the legs so had to do it out of order and out of
kilter. And her left leg wants to turn backwards. And her ear felt is the wrong way round and, and, and, sigh. but I still think she
is cute enough to be forgiven her faults.
Of course a second fox was soon to follow. This time I used some vintage cottons I picked up here and there.
Most of the previous faults were addressed. Still cute as a button, but my heart belongs to the first foxy lady, so despite the challenges of the heavy wool, I'll be making another nearly identical with my lovely fanalisto
velvet again. And perhaps a clever Mr Fox to join her? And the dozen gift requests.
Santa's elf is going to be kept very, very busy.
