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.

Lumberjack #6

One more to go after this fellow!

He is pretty classic with his red and black shirt.

In this photo, you can see the faux-persian lamb texture of his hair. This wool fabric was from my mom’s fabric collection. I remember that it was from a coat she made- I disassembled it to save the usable parts. She used the fabric as a very subtle and classy extra zing on the pockets and collar of a black cashmere coat. I use it for lumberjack hair. In the way of how my mom bought fabric, I also have a white piece of the same fabric that she never cut into. I haven’t found anything to use it for yet either but I’m sure I will someday.

Lumberjack time

So, what have I been doing? The back end work of making: sewing (foxes and tattooed men) and dyeing new doll pieces, trying to get things organized for the holiday rush. I feel like the cartoon character with the spinning feet who is not getting anywhere. Anyway, finally something finished.

The lumberjacks (this one and the rest that I hope to finish this week) got promoted to getting finished because I was sorting through my bins, looking for something (?) and found a pile, all sewed up and ready for their next step. That’s the best.

I didn’t make him a hat because I like his hair too much and I didn’t want to cover it up.
