Issue 8 of One Thimble* magazine has been released, and I’m showing off what I made today!
Also, I received the Desert Fox pattern free for the purpose of this review,
This issue of One Thimble* includes 12 PDF patterns including this super cute stuffie. The patterns can be purchased separately but the best deal is to get the whole magazine. The Desert Fox* was designed by Alicia of Felt With Love Designs. As you can probably guess, the fox is designed to be made using felt. Originally I was going to use felt but since the instructions said it could work with other fabric I decided to try it out in cotton.
Because I was using a light-weight cotton I lined the ears with a layer of felt to help them stand. In hindsight I should have lined the tail in felt as well to help it stay up, ha, but I thought of that too late.
The other change I made because of my fabric choice was I decided to glue the black eye shape on with Fabri-Tac
instead of stitching as I didn’t have any stabilizer on hand. (I’ve used Fabri-Tac on other stuffies before and it’s held up well).
Silly Bean claimed the Desert Fox before I could put the nose on. She loves it and it has joined the select group of stuffies that sleep with her at night.
