Mr. F(ox) moved out



Someone very special to me turned two some time ago. You, my dear readers, who have followed my stories for some time already, know what is inside that pretty green package. For those more recent readers the card may give a hint. Alright, let's take a closer of look of that card, shall we?



I wanted to make a fox-card, and knowing me that would be a colorful and should we say a slightly whimsical too? I cut the parts from felt, used a bit glue to hold them in right places and sewed it together. It took a while to find the eye as I wanted it to be somewhat visible (and it sure is!) so I used an old, fabric covered button and black marker. Plus my beloved glue-gun.



I made a matching (you know I have a syndrome) gift tag too, and tied everything together with some pretty green ribbon. It was a success.

I love you, L!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Hi Glenys,

And thank you! I have been thinking of making some sort of tutorial of birdie making :) - that might be coming in a future.

Have a great Monday and many greetings from Finland again!

Yours,

Thank you, Jane!

We have had slightly less gorgeous weather here and not a bank either ;) but a good day, still.

I hope your party was great success and you enjoyed it a lot!

Happy week :)

Oh I love the card! You are so clever at making such beautiful matching bits and bobs, it really makes it so very special.

Hope L liked Mr F :)

Mia said...

Dear Beth,
L loved his fox!!! He was also getting quite a few other presents at the same time and was a bit overwhelmed by all of it. Now he watches his beloved Timmy the sheep DVD only with Mr.F. - that should say it all ;)

Happy week!

Yours,
Mia

lovely card, I'm sure the lucky two year old will be pleased with both birthday foxes!

Mia said...

Thank you poppet, he was indeed. The card has no placed on shelf out of his reach as we were a bit worried of that eye-popping (quite literally!) factor :)

Happy Wednesday!

Yours,
Mia
