I went to the Southwest Quilt festival a few weeks ago and a kit caught my eye and gave me an idea. Cool Crafting had a stall packed full of well presented toy kits for dolls, rabbits and foxes plus their accessories. This is from the Reynard the fox kit; the cravat and waistcoat were my own addition.
The construction is well explained and with the exception of the ears, sewn by hand.
The kit includes buttons for joints, thread- I found the black embroidery floss was rather weak so substituted with some perle cotton. It also included stuffing but I ran out near then end so I dipped into my own supplies.
Arrow B were my own addition, as was the linen waistcoat, a self drafted pattern and lined with a pink floral Liberty lawn and co-ordinating cravat.
He's ready to be given. A gift for my granny's birthday. He's ready to join Miss Maggie Rabbit and a Christmas rag doll that are sitting in a sunny spot waiting for him. Now to wrap him...
