I hope you enjoy making this bag as much (or more) as I did,
I got the idea from a book called "Make your own gifts" Published in Great Britain in 2013 by Dorling Kindersley

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Material
Felt (colours brown or red, white, blue, purple)
embroidery thread (colours,red, white, blue, purple, and blake),
About 50 cm of Ribbon
3 black beads
Step 2: Step 1
Draw out your foxes shape. You will need a body(red), tail(white), head(red), face(white), and inside the ears(white).
Step 3: Step 2
Pin them to the correct coloured felt and cut the shapes out.
Step 4: Step 3
Cut out the bag the size you want it, I did my bag 11 inches long, the flap (or bag top) 7 inches wide, the bag bit 7 and a half inches wide. I did the front bit of the bag 7 inches long and 7and a half wide. That is the same for the inner bag except it is 7 inches long the whole way down
Step 5: Step 5
Sew the white bushy tail first to the small blue square (or which colour you chose) then sew your body onto the tail. Sew the bottom bit of your press stud to were you want it.
Step 6: Step 6
Sew your face (white) on to the flap, then you sew your head (red) on,then your inner ears (white)
Step 7: Step 7
Use thread to sew on two black beads (for the eyes), and then using black thread sew on one black bead for the nose
Step 8: Step 8
Now turn your bag inside out and sew your inner bag onto the outer bag. Make shure the stitches on the outer bag are neat because there the bits you will see.
Step 9: Step 9(last Step Yah! :)
Sew the top half of the press stud were you want it inside the flap. Turn the bag back the right way and sew the ribbon that makes the strap on the back (or side) of the bag.
Step 10: Finish!!!!
Now you have a cool fox bag! Well done(::)
