Red Fox Gloves from A Wool Sweater

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. 


Cute huh...


Which pair do you like better?? 

Thanks for visiting and STAY WARM....(It's 17 degrees her in Pousbo)!!!
