Felt Fox Toy

Christmas has been really busy, but I found some time to experiment with a new pattern. The fox is based on the squirrel pattern, but his nose is much longer and the dragon toy pattern. He is about 5.5 inches tall and I ended up stitching him together really quickly. You can tell I rushed the sewing a bit, but I was impatient and wanted to see if the idea would work. I think his head is a bit flat at the back., with the next one I'll try and make it rounder.

Your little felt toys are so nice! Ive been playing with felt recently but have only managed to make quite flat looking toys, are these the patterns you got from the old book you found and have adapted? xoxo

Ello Inspector!
The craft book I found had patterns for all sorts of creatures and it tells you how to make your own. I'll scan a page in and add it to the blog!

This little fox is great - he is much 'quirkier' than the other you've done so far, I love him!
I can imagine that head shape with the big eye as a bird too?
