Finished the little fox over the weekend. Spent a good amount of time trying to decide if it’s a boy or a girl but then realized I really like that I can’t decide. I want them all to be that way. I like that the kid who receives the animals I make will get to decide for themselves. Or change it up based on what their fantasy is that day.
I made the fox from the backyard bandits pattrern by Barbara Prime. The raccoon I made is also from that pattern. I’m loving that pattern more and more. This fox is so perfect to hold in my hands and has such a nice weight and flexibility. Knit from alpaca yarn and stuffed with organic cotton, he feels luxe and yet somehow still basic enough to drag around by the arm. I’m in love.
