Make a Foxy n Badger Kit... Wool Felt Sewing.

 so, me and the 9yr old decided to make the FOXY from this kit.

To be honest, she isn't so patient and i did most of it BUT i think a more attentive 9 / 10yr old could cope with this given help.
 Lovely softest wool felt in perfect colours.
You may remember i made my girl a foxy cushion a few months ago?

well this foxy is now on the bed keeping it company.
 I am TERRIBLE at fllowing patterns and instructions. I have no idea - its like maths to me.
Does. not. compute.
But luckily, once i just cut out all the pieces and started putting them together it was very easy and i didn't need to read the directions much.
 We skipped the 'round bottom' that would make foxy stand up as we wanted a cuddly fella.
What do you think? 
Of course, had i free reign, i would have gone mad on adding buttons and details but the Girl is a stickler for the picture. her ONE concessions being a yellow scarf swap around.
hello Foxy, welcome to our home! x
