Foxy sleeping bag

LouLou’s little niece has a particular love of animals and, in addition to rabbits, cats, ducks, donkeys, fish, a chicken and a Falabella pony, she also has a semi-tame fox that comes to the garden regularly to be fed.  As you can imagine, the creature combination in the menagerie can be a bit tense at times (for example, when the fox was caught red-pawed, so to speak, unsuccessfully trying to sneak off with one of the ducks under the cover of the earlier nights!).  On the whole though, it is a peaceful arrangement that keeps everyone happy.

So when we saw that Florence of Flossie Teacakes was offering one of her sweet little sleeping bags with a gorgeous fox print all over it, we knew it would make a superb gift for the girl who loves anything vulpine.  Of course, that meant we had to track down a little fox cub to snuggle into the cute wee bed and we found the softest, fluffiest fellow you could imagine and he fits a treat!

You can make your own sleeping bag, with instructions in several sizes to suit most teddy bears and soft toys, from Florence’s pattern and additional guidelines.  She also offers a range of beautifully hand-made gifts on her website and Etsy shop, as well as an interesting insight into dressmaking and other sewing skills on her fabulous blog.  LouLou & Will x
