Free Pattern Friday! Fox Plush

Hello everybody!

It’s crazy to think that after all these years I still haven’t done a fox plush! It’s such a classic animal, but I suppose I wanted to be sure I was giving you all something I hadn’t seen before and is also relatively easy ❤ After a good bit of testing and trials I landed on this design of a tiny little hand-held fox with a big wrapping tail!

The pattern itself doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so the foxes come together rather quickly 😀 To get the curve of the tail, it has some double-ended darts, which is likely the most difficult part. Sewing it won’t look pretty until the tail is finally done 😛 But despite all that I’d still call it a 3/10.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. In it are the files for the face, which uses applique for the muzzle. There’s also the ears, which has cute little applique fluffs. To make things easier the ears are sewn in-the-hoop – so they’re ready to attach to your head once they come out of the machine! Both files are sized to fit 4” x 4” embroidery hoops too! I hope you all enjoy!


I made some cut & sew versions for Spoonflower too! So you can skip all the applique and embroidery because all the faces and pattern notes are printed right on the fabric ♥ There’s a classic orange and gray fox as well as a fun icy arctic blue and galaxy fox 😀

Freebie Friday: The Totoro Bag

Prj010
Ah, yes! Finally I’m getting into some of the things that I love 😀 This, of course, is Totoro, the loveable fuzzy forest creature from the Ghibli children’s film, My Neighbor Totoro. It’s probably one of my favorite Miyazaki movies, and really epitomizes the fantasy and innocence of childhood I think.
I had some gray twill that I originally used to make another bag. And while I kept making much plainer bags out of my other stashes of gray fabric, it finally clicked in my head that Totoro is gray, and would make for a perfect oval-shaped bag! I thought it was especially kismet when I saw this scrap of green linen and thought it would be perfect for the little leaf on his head. The leaf serves as the bag’s closure, which has a metal snap on the inside to keep everything together.
In addition, it’s covered in appliqué to give the adorable Totoro face and body, it has handles shaped like his ears, and I even lined the inside with an awesome leaf print fabric. There are quite a few details to get through, but I definitely think it was worth it for this awesome look, so I hope you’ll try it!
