You know he’s a baddie because of the cigarette, right? I suspect that is an American cultural thing.
He is made from some of the hand-dyed (mimi-dyed) wool and so his color is variegated rusty red.
Here is a close-up of his wallet and newspaper-
And we continue with the foxes!
He is made out of a lovely bright orange wool, probably meant as a coat fabric. It is soft and dense and a dream to work with. The green wool plaid is from my trip to the Pendleton outlet when I was in Portland, OR. Great memories when I am sewing.
Nerdy boy fox. Or more like a commuter fox since he has his newspaper in his pocket.
This is my craziest time of year. I feel pretty frantic as I try to get ready for the CraftBoston show, try to keep up with my emails, do the product photos, etc, etc. The result is that I am not focusing on getting items into my etsy shop. If you see something go by that you are interested in, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can give you all the info.
It is a little odd to be dressing up these pups in sweaters and scarves in the middle of summer!
I’ve got pugs lined up on the worktable.
First one finished-
Little curly tail-
Plain orange (hand-dyed and not exactly evenly) kitty, carrying a backpack and smoking a pipe.
He has a long-sleeve sweater which made fitting the jacket a bit of a challenge.
And here is what he has in his pack- supplies for a day out and walking. The folded up paper is a map.
Bow tie and cashmere sweater vest= adorable nerdy kitty.
He is an outdoor, roaming kind of kitty. He has a picnic in his backpack.
