Foxy cross-stitch hoop

Friday, December 23, 2016


I've been working on this little foxy fella for just over a week now for my Secret Santa recipient this year (my boss - no pressure then!). She likes foxes at the moment, so I thought I'd stitch her one to hang in her new house.

I wasn't sold on the grey outline around the white parts at first, but the Aida cloth is off white and the tail and face didn't stand out enough in bright light. I could've used a different coloured Aida cloth but I didn't have anything on hand that was the size I wanted so I worked with what I had. I liked how it turned out - the whole piece fits perfectly inside a dinky embroidery hoop and has a bit of candy-cane twine on the top so it can be hung on the wall.

I am so pleased with this piece I'm ever so slightly miffed I have to give it away(!) Although it will be going to a good home.

Definitely need to pick up some more small hoops - I want to make something like this for myself to hang on my bedroom wall. I was thinking about which cute animal I can do next and I'm swaying towards doing a baby penguin or a wee little duckling because baby birds are too cuuuuuute.
