Pink Zebra Print Fox

monkeymakesafoxMy sister Adelaide (9) made a fox today with just a little help from me. Here’s what she has to say about it:

“The tail was the hardest part because I had to hand-sew all the way around. He’s made of very soft pink and pink zebra fleece. I used two hand-stitch techniques. I used the ladder stitch to sew him together at the end, and a running stitch for everything else. He was very fun to make and his name is Darth Vader.”

When questioned about his name, Adelaide had this to say:

“I like Star Wars, and Darth Vader is my favorite character!”

This fox was made from a free fox pattern my sister found over at Katie Steuernagle‘s blog, Matsutake.
