Cute Fox Embroidery Kit by Kiriki Press
I bought this embroidery kit by Kiriki Press at the Paper Place when I was in Toronto earlier in the year. I loved the cute design and thought it would be a good practice project to brush up on my embroidery skills. But when I started working on it in July I was really frustrated by the small scale and having to follow a pattern. I set it aside for most of the summer and then decided to have another go at it this weekend.
I’d been lamenting my lack of productivity last week so I really wanted to work on something. I somehow managed to get past my frustrations with this kit when I took it out on Saturday, and made my way through all of the embroidery by mid-afternoon on Sunday. This was between going out for walks, naps, swimming at the beach, reading, and eating. I learned new stitches – the chain stitch and the ladder stitch – and fell in love with the little fox in the process.
The kit comes with a back piece and stuffing to turn the fox into a very cute little softie. She is about six inches high, and is a lovely addition to my small collection of handmade toys. The first I’ve made myself!
