Fox Pocket Tutorial

Happy New Year to all of my lovely readers, both new and old! I hope you’ve had a fabulous Christmas and New Year

I have some really exciting news that I have been dying to share with you all since before Christmas.

I entered a design competition with Crafty magazine to come up with a craft project and tutorial based on foxes. The winner would get £300 worth of haberdashery goods and have their tutorial printed in issue 10 of Crafty magazine.

The rather brilliant news is that I won!!!!! I tell you, I was doing a serious happy dance when I found out that my design was the winning entry…and not just because I’ll get £300 worth of goodies!

For the competition I designed an applique fox pocket that you can attach to little girls’ dresses and skirts or even the flap of a bag

The girls love their dresses and Emily was quite upset when I sent ‘her’ dress off as part of my entry. Luckily for me the dresses have been returned and I have two happy little girls!

If you’re interested then I’ve also done an interview for the Crafty magazine web site…..

I am completely made up and can’t wait to see my tutorial in print….I went to my nearest outlet this afternoon to get a copy but because of the New Year bank holiday they hadn’t had their delivery today!

    Well done – glad to hear your girls got the bits back. I my mum had made something like that for me I’d want it back too!

    Might have to buy the magazine for a sneaky peak. Never had the patience for applique (or non-bag making sewing for that matter), but it is on my list of project.
