zana makes: fox plushie April 2, 2013 – Posted in: DIY – Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

My lovely friends Nikki & Nic have just announced that they are expecting a baby boy! I love any excuse to create something fun and a friend having a baby is the perfect one, so we spent Sunday of the Easter weekend making this little guy. I found a pattern to create a plushie fox on etsy here for $10 – which translates to like R90.00. I think anything handmade is a lot more special and unique, don’t you? The pattern was simple but I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who has no sewing experience. It took a bit of machine sewing & hand sewing to put this little foxie together. We didn’t stick to the guide exactly and we used our own combo of fabrics & felt. He turned out so cute!

The etsy store where I bought the pattern has so many other cute ones, especially the little sheep. Check them out!

Otherwise here are some pictures:


He even has a little tail, cutie!


(ps. after looking at these images I do notice that his one arm is higher than the other, haha, at least he has some character! :P)

Now to deliver him to his expecting mommy…
