I picked up this lovely burnt orange sweater last year with the plan to felt it and make a fox tablet cover...
Great idea ....Still not done.
I did manage to make a couple of "Fox Gloves".
They were simple and fun and gave me that creative relief that I always seem to need...no matter what time of year it is . :)
I did two different designs because...well I couldn't deiced which I liked better...(Yup...Sounds like me doesn't it)?
Anyway...the first set I made out of the sleeves...flipping them around and putting the cuff in the back. I cut a triangle into the sleeve to give it the fox head.
The face is hand stitched using more felted wool.
For the thumbs I simply cut a slit in the wool...I don'st sew around them because they lose their softness, plus they hold up just fine without any extra reinforcement!
For the second pair I just moved up on the sleeve and cut another piece off (8 inches long). Because this part of the sleeve is larger I used a button to pull it in and make it a little more fitted at the wrist.
This time I gave the fox whiskers and left his face square.
Which pair do you like better??
Thanks for visiting and STAY WARM....(It's 17 degrees her in Pousbo)!!!
I will be yet again linking up to all those wonderful parties on my side bar.
