Finally finished a project that I’ve been working on mentally for months and started accumulating what I needed for it almost as long. There were a few problems with the idea, and a few ideas I had that I tossed out over that time because they didn’t seem to have good solutions.
I wanted to make a stuffed animal for my upcoming, now due any moment, grandson. And I wanted to put a music box into it. I found one that plays a tune with his name in the title, and my son requested a particular animal, a FOX. Well, while I think foxes are cool, they are not the easiest thing to come up with a design for.
After pouring over various things online I did finally come up with something I thought would be easy enough for me to make. I wanted something two dimensional, that is I didn’t want to have to cut out more than 2 sides!
Since my blog post is fairly long I won’t go into a lot of details here, just suffice it to say, he’s a little crazy looking, but I’m pretty pleased with the outcome. I hope my little grandson will enjoy his fox and the nice thing about him is he has 4 long legs and a tail and a long nose which can all be handles to drag him around. Plus he’ll make a nice soft pillow to lay a little head on. And he’ll play a nice little tune. And maybe it will make him think about his grandmother. :)
