Fox Flower girl

I know we are inching toward Autumn and this week has certainly felt like it, but this little one is all about summer.

Her felt flower headband is sewed to elastic. Her dress is made from the re-release of Heather Ross‘s Far, Far, Away line which I absolutely love, love, love!!! (you will be seeing more fox girls in dresses from that fabric- I bought a bunch!)

She is the same pattern as #2.

When I reworked the pattern, I made curvy, curvier and curviest. These are curviest.

I am very happy with my new curvier and curviest. Curvy, not so much so you haven’t seen a finished one yet. Two out of three isn’t bad though and after my show next weekend I will get back to work on the design.

I have been working on redesigning my lady body pattern for the tattooed ladies. Last week, after I got back from Chicago, I cut out some ladies from my new patterns. On Friday I dyed the fabrics. I sewed over the weekend and am now in the process of finishing some up. Here is my first one finished-

next up- Washington DC

The next event on my schedule is Crafty Bastards in Washington DC. There are lots of terrific vendors and super nice crafty people so it will be a great time! You can get tickets ahead of time here.

I’ve got a lots of new pieces in progress- assorted piles of foxes, tattooed ladies and lumberjacks, all in various states of completion. Hopefully I will have some finished pieces to show in the next few days.

I leave for Chicago tomorrow but I’m still working away! After these fellows, I have 3 foxes I’m hoping to finish before I get on the plane.

This is a much redder brown than the other.

The toile is amazing. He has a badger on his chest- at least I think that’s a badger.

And a kitty on his back!

My elephant ear is starting to take over my porch- very encroaching.
