This fox is a traveler.

He has all he needs for his wandering ways. A warm jacket and vest, a kerchief in one pocket and his map in the other. He has a backpack to hold his other necessities. His vest is soft flannel and I love the pine trees- perfect!

Here is a close-up of his supplies- his notebook, money, utensils, snack.

I will try to get the 6 available foxes into my etsy shop by the end of today.

fall fox boy 1- mushroom hunter

11:14:fox boy 1a

Mushroom hunting is a great excuse for a walk in the woods. No eating of foraged fungi is necessary. I am sure this fox is an expert though and knows the good stuff and will be making dinner later. You can see that he found a really big mushroom for his collecting bag.

The boy foxes I just finished are also made from hand-dyed by me wool fabric. I think you can see the color variations in these pics.

fall fox girl 3- fancy!

11:11:fox girl 3a

She is all dressed up, fancy fox style!

It pleases me no end to use little antique pearl buttons like those on her jacket.

Her dress is Liberty lawn and I used some antique (20′s?), never-used, still in original packaging, cotton trim at the bottom hem. As I was measuring it out, I noticed that it felt like it had a stiffener in it. That reminded me that being so old, I should be worrying about shrinking. A slight delay ensued while I washed and dried it. Any yes, it shrunk :)
