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 ( and I can give you all the info.

Lumberjack fox

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.

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.
