He is an artist of the wander-out-in-nature variety. He has a portfolio on a strap, a sketch book inside, and a pencil in his pocket.
He has a cashmere scarf and sweater vest.
He is the last fox for now. Next up, tiny world pincushions.
I take apart/cut up cashmere sweaters from the thrift store to make these sweaters for my foxes. I wash the cashmere but it stays soft and drapey, perfect for the way I use it. On this one, I cut out the sweater pieces so that the original sweater’s ribbing could get used for my little fox sweater. Then, I took off a ruffle that went all the way around the original sweater’s button front and neckline and sewed it on for this sweet girl. Now she has the fancy sweater! Also a silk bow.
And a Liberty lawn dress.
Here is his gorgeous vest-
He is made from an interesting reclaimed wool fabric. I bought an old wool kimono type garment at a yard sale at a local Japanese School. It had some moth holes and worn spots so I felt guiltless cutting it up and giving it a new life. It has a very interesting textured weave.
This is the last fox for now. This fox girl started out with her awesome dress. I love this fabric so much that I had to do a massive internet search to track down some more!
After her dress was finished, it was a challenge to figure out what else she needed. I felt like I was dealing with a fashion-opinionated teenager… although I’m not sure if that describes her or me. I tried a wool coat and a cape before I was happy with this wool felt jacket.
I’ve never made wool felt clothing for my dolls (just details like collars and pockets) but this worked out beautifully and it was fun to try out.
She’s got a picnic-
