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-
Once the dress was made and on, it was obvious that she needed a crown!
She has a little fox doll and I didn’t want her to lose it so I put a pin on its’ back.
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-
Her school bag- just the kind I wanted as a kid.
I have a collection of these fun ribbons and I love it when I find a place to use them! Those mushrooms were exactly what this little wool dress needed.
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 (email@example.com) and I can give you all the info.
I packed a picnic in a basket for her.
I thought this photo looks like a school picture!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates tomorrow!
It has gotten a bit cold in Boston for this particular outfit but it would be perfect for the Spring.
I do like her striped green shirt/jacket. Maybe I should try to make myself one!
A close-up of her purse-
I have so many fabrics that are perfect for fox dresses… I get so excited about every one!
She has a button-up cashmere sweater and a soft white shawl/scarf. And, of course, her school bag.
She is adorable! I have been looking forward to using this Liberty fabric, ever since I bought it last Spring. It is perfect colors for and orange fox girl.
She has an incredibly soft and fuzzy cashmere sweater to wear on top.
