Random other things I made in 2014

Year of hedgehogs (a few are missing and will have to be added)

little blind mouse

Next to the first fox for comparison. I really don’t know what I am going to dress it in, or how I am going to make its beady little eyes and whiskers.

Also alternative use for the writing desk, replace the plexiglass with cooling rack and it’s a pretty perfect laptop desk.

Foxes

Also while in Toronto I made clothes for the fox that I had made in Nova Scotia, they make a dapper pair:

In the background you can see my new gouges from Lee Valley. I’ve also started a mouse finally. I made the ears rounder, and the legs and arms shorter, and the belly rounder, and with a pipe cleaner tail. It just needs stuffing and having its head sewn on. I’m not sure what kind of clothing I’ll make for it. Alex made the glasses for the new fox a few months ago.

Sewing from the Toronto trip

I made a little leaf enclosure for a USB stick I wanted to send to Peter, I think it came out rather well. I’m tempted to make a great many more little leaves like these and sew them to things. this picture really shows the pattern stuck in my head of late.

And I also made one of my little chickens and sent it to Peter’s aunt and uncle as thanks for letting us stay with them:

I am trying to get the purple outline out from the design so that it only shows the threads that have been overlaid and pinned down. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but it would make a cute cover for a notebook.
