Instructables
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

Picture of 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.

Step 2: Cut out the Pieces

At this point, if you haven't already, it would be ideal for you to print the pattern and cut out the pieces.

Now, cut out the pieces from the fabric. I just hold the paper pattern pieces onto the fabric while I trace them with a fine point Sharpie. If you're using to different colored fabrics, make sure that underbody and the tail tips are cut from the contrasting fabric color.

If the pattern indicates you need two of a certain piece, trace the pattern normally to create the first piece, then flip the pattern over and trace to create the second piece--the two pieces should be mirror images of each other.

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 "what does the fox say" 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. :)
