An Improv Fox

What do you do when your preschooler becomes obsessed with a new TV show and desperately wants the toys to play with, but there are no toys?  Well, if you happen to have THE perfect fabric in your stash, you make one.

Meet Fig.


I downloaded an image I found online, then cropped out this character and printed him out full page size.  I used a sharpie to trace out the essential pieces (body+head, arm, leg,tail), then enlarged those pieces by 150%.    Considering I had no pattern and no real plan, I’m pretty happy with how he turned out.
