Sometimes when you browse Pinterest for some other free pattern, something catches your eye. For me, that happened a while ago, with this one to be precise. It was a super cute, free, adorable pattern of a fox made by Misty’s Whimsies. You can find the pattern here. So I printed the pattern, and it sat around in an envelope for a few months. You see, I couldn’t decide what fabric to make it out off. In the end, I followed the cues from the designer and picked a red quilting type fabric with white polkadots as the main fabric, and a grey fabric with white stars as the contrast. The black nose was eventually made out of a bit of bias tape.. none of the fabrics in my stash were a black quilting type cotton, for some reason.
It sewed up pretty quickly over 3 evenings, the instructions were good, the notches matched and I was extremely happy with the pattern. So far, the only issue I’ve found is that mine doesn’t ‘sit & stay’ very well. Perhaps it needs some heavier butt-stuffing or something. Who knows.. All in all, it’s cute and the pattern worked really well!
