A Foxy Tuesday How-To~*

In keeping with my quest to focus this final week of February's posts to things I love, today's how to is my favorite thing to make-- a cute, crafty pillow.

I don't know why I love making these little guys, I just do.

For this foxy fellow, I used:

  • white & red fleece
  • iron on light weight interfacing {to keep the white fleece from pulling}
  • 3 black buttons-- to eyes & a nose
  • stuffing-- I used a fluffy polyfil
 I cut a 12x12 square for the body, then cut the triangle for the snout and the circle for the belly to fit.  The tail I freehanded-- attach the tail to the body as pictured-- be sure to attach the tail to the back piece on the opposite side from the front. Which sounds odd, but should be obvious when you see the picture!
I did leave an opening on the body & the tail, to allow for adequate stuffing.  I used a blanket stitch to close it up...& I think the rest is self-explanatory!

And there he is!

No worries if you aren't particularly crafty.  This foxy gentleman is my contribution to the giveaway we are holding Thursday!  Be sure to check back in & enter to win him & tons of other really wonderful prizes from my sidebar bloggie buddies~*

Have a crafty sort of Tuesday!

  2. Cute! Great job, Tabetha! I am allergic to my sewing machine lately ;)

  3. I just LOVE this fox pillow! Adorable :) I'm clueless with a sewing machine, but I'm going to show my daughter this tutorial... I know she will pull out her sewing machine and try it out!

  4. Super adorable! I've been practicing more with my sewing machine and I'd love to give this a try. Foxes are probably my favourite after hedgehogs.

  5. That is really adorable! I might actually attempt it one day. I have to work up to it. ;)

  6. This is so adorable!! I don't know how to sew - I really should learn!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day!

  7. A pillow pet, in the best sense of the word. A minimalist, foxy little dude---simple, graphic, whimsical. And the blanket stitching is a perfect detail. Hope you're feeling all the way better! Lynaea @ EverydayBloom.com

    Thanks for linking up to the GYB Hop, Tabetha!
