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.

And here, open-
I’ve been imagining this fellow for a long while so when I got back to the foxes, he was the first that I wanted to finish up.
He had to wear the lumberjack classic red and black buffalo plaid, of course!
And there is his axe, stored in his backpack.
All his clothing and accessories are removable. He has his hatchet, a pear, and a handkerchief, stowed in the backpack.
It is hard to get inspired to do foxes with outdoor interests (like butterflies, mushroom hunting, foraging, etc) in the winter when the forest in New England is asleep. But, wandering, even in winter, I can imagine.
eta- I have just listed these last 4 foxes into my etsy shop.
I believe he is an Apiologist, based on his lapel wear. I also think he is the Dad of the little guy I posted yesterday.
I know I’ve talked about my connection to fabrics before somewhere, but in case you forgot ;-)
I love using fabrics that hold memories for me. I still have lots of fabric from my mom. I have fabrics that were gifts. I have fabrics that I purchased while traveling. This sweet little girl fox is wearing 2 memories for me- her shawl and a Liberty print dress. The shawl fabric was acquired on my first trip to Minneapolis, recorded here on my blog. Wow, that was a long time ago! I bought the Liberty fabric in San Francisco on my first (and only) visit to Britex. I was spending some quality shopping time with Sonya. And while I was sewing, I was remembering my travels.
