Feeling Foxy.

November 14, 2012

I’m seriously obsessed with foxes. I just bought this huge cushion with a fox from David Fussenegger. It’s so adorable. I might take it to bed when my boyfriend isn’t around. This isn’t as dirty as it sounds. Don’t be a pervert!

Well back to the DIY: I have had an iPad for quite some time. Over half a year. Well, I used it mostly at home, so excuse me, you don’t have to judge me for not having a sleeve for 9 month. This things happen. I’m just not willing to spend € 70,- and more on something like this. And well I tell myself: I can make one! Just the way I like it. And then I don’t. I would like to say there was a higher force that prevented me from actually creating something. I would also love to say, I just haven’t had the right idea and waiting for inspiration. To be honest, it just didn’t happen. Maybe just lazy. Who knows. Not me anyway.

So finally I made it. And I’m so pleased with the result. It looks even better than in my inmagination.

I made a paper template for the fox myself. If you want one, please just contact me. The edges were sewn with a technique called blanket stitch. You can see a tutorial how it’s done here.

    So do I! In fact, it’s my subject for alot of my paintings! Check out my website and see what you think! I’ll be updating soon with more, and new, work.

      I did stitch the fox by hand. Very tiny little stitches. You need 2 different colours of felt in the shape of the ears & nose and cheeks. The eyes and nose where done with a thicker threat.

    […] from London. They didn’t send it, it’s a souvenir. I love it (not only because of the fox). I think greeting cards are underrated art. Or maybe upcoming art. At least cheap art. But still […]
