I like foxes a lot. (And dragons.) After a sadly failed attempt at a dragon plush, I decided to try my hand at a fox. Luckily the fox turned out right.

This is more of a soft sculpture or an art toy/plush/doll than "normal" plush. In other words, you can't really squish it and hug it...you just put it on a shelf or your desk so you can have staring contests all day. As you can (hopefully) tell from the fifth photo, the fox is also rather small, about 6 inches from nose to tail.

Step 1: Materials

  • fabric (main color and contrasting color)
  • fiberfill or stuffing
  • sewing thread
  • embroidery floss (black and one or two accent colors)
  • pipe cleaner/ chenille stem (any color)
  • sewing needle
  • embroidery needle
  • fabric scissors
  • marker/ pen/ pencil (for tracing pattern)
  • pins
  • paintbrush/ chopstick/ anything long and skinny (helpful in flipping the legs right side out)
  • pattern (below)
A note on fabric choice: 
Most fabrics should work fine, but due to the size of the fox (and therefore his legs), thick fabrics such as fleece or canvas probably won't be very suitable.
I love foxes. you can tell bye my username...
also this is SO CUTE!! im gonna ask my mom to make it 4 my bday... XD mom might look at me wierd coz imma guy
what does the fox say?
Um, not exactly sure what you're referring to there. I didn't embroider any words/ symbols on him, if that's what you're asking.
Haha, that's not what i meant. i was quoting a song that says &quot;what does the fox say&quot; in it. its pretty popular around my area.
That makes a lot more sense. :) I am rather clueless when it comes to what's popular in music.
Cute guy. :)
