DIY stuffed fox

26 Jun

These little fox animals are adorable!  I found the tutorial on one of my favorite blogs abeautifulmess.typepad.com.  I whipped up two of them for my gals and have to admit they are not as cute as the one’s she did-uuug.

Plush Fox Doll D.I.Y.

Plush fox 1A few years back I made and sold these cute plush fox pillows through Red Velvet. Since it’s a retired product now, we decided to teach you how to make them! These foxes are a fun one-evening sewing project that you can do with even the most basic sewing skills! Enjoy! 

Plush fox steps1: Supplies Needed- Simple solid, print, and white cotton fabric, scissors, card stock, plush stuffing, sewing machine/needle and thread and child safe snap on button eyes and noses. (You can find them in the doll section at your local craft store.) 2. Cut out the back and front of the fox. We made ours an estimate 1×2 ft. 3. Cut out and trace a circle from card stock on the back of your patterned fabric. This will be for the fox’s belly! 4. Next, sew on a triangle shape for the snout with the white fabric. For the eyes and nose, make a tiny hole with scissors, poke the eyes and nose through and secure it with the back snap. 5. After you’ve sewn on the snout, sew on the belly! You’ll always want to sew on the snout first, guaranteeing that the belly won’t be too high or too low. 6. Once you’ve decorated the front, place both sides together with the outsides facing in and sew them together, leaving a small gap at the bottom. After you’ve sewn your fox together, flip him inside out and fill with stuffing! Last, hand stitch the opening. All done!

      Aren’t they?!
      The lady who created the tutorial seems crazy talented!
      I’ll have to make a few more, so I can come up with some cute fabric combo’s.
