I was working on a lop rabbit pattern, getting it all sewed and stuffed and just when I was working on the eyes it hit me. THIS head pattern could be altered to be a fox! All I needed to do was push back the forehead a little, bring the muzzle out more, make big foxy ears and cheek patches. So I drew it all out and tried it using cheapo felt.
Man, the prototype was almost perfect! The shape, the size, just a bit of tweaking here and there with the ears and cheek patches. (Note to self, use less stuffing in cheek patches.) I was planning on getting some of the red fur material daughter gave me to work on it tomorrow but when I looked at the head from another angle it reminded me of....a fawn!
Ok, another pattern. Make the muzzle slightly longer and more squared off, increase the forehead just a bit and there it was! And danged if it ain't life-sized to boot! So instead of cutting material I think I'll spend the day making the fawn's body. Wednesday I'll go get more needed material (the fox needs black fur for legs and I think I'll make the fawn all over in brown felt. Plus stuffing!! I need stuffing!!!)
As for the bunny I'm making it some chibi eyes from felt as the buttons just don't look right. I tried them for the heck of it on the fox and it just looked like an alien! LOL
And if I make this fawn then I'll have to alter the pony pattern once more to make a mommy for it. Poor lil thing can't be along, after all!
I am on a plushie roll!!!!
