FOX EMBROIDERY - REPUROSE AN OLD HANDBAG

I have become slightly addicted to foxes recently....and its not like I can escape it either.. Foxes are everywhere at the moment. It seems to be a real fashion trend.
I can't say I'm surprised, look at 'em??! stinkin' cute



Le Fox Necklace by Laura Johnson
Laura explains the concept behind the necklace - "red foxes are cunning strategists. They keep calm under pressure and can figure out how to use their surroundings to their benefit by thinking outside the box. Wear this necklace to promote quick wit, control, transformation, and practicality".

I totally get you, Mr. Le Fox!


 Mini Citizen Co has this adorable, hand printed onesie of a sleeping fox. Go check them out on Etsy.




 Anthropologie has brought the fox in to the house with this gorgeous, quirky print fox pillow.

I decided to give one of my old favourites a foxy makeover.


I found a cute picture of a fox that I liked and re-drew the image on a piece of paper. Then, I took a piece of carbon duplicate paper and placed it between the bag and the image. I traced the image (pretty hard) on to the bag so that the carbon paper would print it on. This gave me the perfect outline to stitch with.






I chose pinks as my colour pallet. I wanted it to be a little bit girly.









Im pretty happy with the outcome and now the bag doesn't live in the cupboard anymore!

What can you re-fashion from your closet?
