Folk Art-y Fox girl

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.

Bad Boy Fox

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-

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 (mimik@pobox.com) and I can give you all the info.
