so browsing the interweb last Thursday i came across foxes! and i have to say that i fell in love. here is one of the beauties http://www.etsy.com/listing/87398939/reserved-made-to-order-fancy-fox. there was this part of me that said "i can do that!" and yes there is this other little girl sitting in my head that decided i would rather have someone buy them for me. as for the moment i can not buy one of these amazing foxes i decided to try and make one. since this lovely person seems to have perfected the shape and form of them, i decided to take my own twist on him. i drafted a quick pattern, started cutting up my scraps and decided i was ready to go. luckily this weekend i got to spend time in what is possibly my favorite place in the world. hand stitching the little guy while watching the lake and listening to the songbirds. i finished him today as i had to tweak his ears ;) i have to say that i love him and how quick he was to work up. he has string jointed limbs and can stand on my hand, a lot smaller than my other creations wouldn't you say? love and sunshine till next time
So for all you lovely lovelies interested in this sort of thing. i got two commissions recently, the first will be a rather large elephant. Here is the pattern that I drafted for the Elephant for Lil' T. he will be interesting to make as the request was for an elephant the size of the child :) wish me luck, tomorrow i will cut out and start pinning together the pieces. i will update as i go. Love and sunshine for now

So after two months of work, and over 70 hours, el Dragon is pretty much finished. thinking of taking him to the park tomorrow and doing a photo shoot. but here is a bit of a teaser pic :) hope you like him as much as i do. from the idea in my head to the finished product he is 100% mine. i will be selling others now that i have figured this out.
