Just about to get back to painting my chest (it’s a wooden chest, not my actual chest), but I thought to save having clutter later and share this critter with you.
I did a terrible, ‘typical me’ thing and just roughly followed the instructions, so was super worried that he would turn out looking like nothing, but I’m glad he at least looks a bit like a foxy fox. Perhaps not as foxy as Elsie’s family of foxes, which is where I got the tutorial from. I don’t even know why I didn’t follow it exactly, would have saved me a bit of anxiety (not that I haven’t got enough to go around) and it’s very simple and easy to follow.
This was the part where I started to get worried that things might not turn out how I wanted them to…
May or may not had to perform a bit of a bodge-job on his poor old nose as the nose I’d bought had a weird back that was too long to just sew on, there’s probably a way around that though, tips would be greatly appreciated.
I had so many perfectly posed moments that I could have captured but she got very quickly distracted by the reflection of my watch and started going crazy. I think she approves though, as she hasn’t yet tried to maul him yet.
Maybe he is a bit rough around the edges, and a bit fat, but I kind of like him. He was a great excuse to use up extra fabric (and buy some more), so I’m really pleased with him.
Now it’s back to painting, but more on that later.
What do you think of my take on A Beautiful Mess’ foxy fox? Have you been up to anything crafy recently?
