How cute is this little guy? Cass from Cass Can Sew is a deft hand with designing software and she has been putting together some appliqué patterns lately which are available to download for free!
This is the Quiet Fox pattern - I sized my fox down by 50% (I think? Or was it 3/4 size? I can't remember!) and made a mini foxy to appliqué onto a simple denim zippy which is now a pencil case for the girls. I added a couple of little embellishments with some buttons and embroidery and the fox itself was made using some orange quilting cotton scraps and some natural linen scraps fused using bond-a-web type stuff. I embroidered his nose and eyes using some regular black thread.
Yeah he's pretty cute if I do say so myself. The bright orange contrast against the dark denim looks good so I might make Lucy a denim skirt or pinny and add a fox using this appliqué pattern.
If I get some time to sew...hardly any of that happening around here lately :( While husband is away I tend to go to bed early and read (currently Burial Rites by Hannah Kent or online newspapers) or binge watch TV series (Orange Is The New Black season one) on my laptop. Too tired to think about cutting out a new project!
