Cute Plush Fox Doll D.I.Y.

Plush Fox Doll D.I.Y.

 

These plush fox dolls are a fun one-evening sewing project that you can do with even the most basic sewing skills! The following is the step.

 

1: Supplies Needed- Simple solid, print, and white cotton fabric, scissors, card stock, plush stuffing, sewing machine/needle and thread and child safe snap on button eyes and noses. (You can find them in the doll section at your local craft store.) 2. Cut out the back and front of the fox. We made ours an estimate 1×2 ft. 3. Cut out and trace a circle from card stock on the back of your patterned fabric. This will be for the fox’s belly! 4. Next, sew on a triangle shape for the snout with the white fabric. For the eyes and nose, make a tiny hole with scissors, poke the eyes and nose through and secure it with the back snap. 5. After you’ve sewn on the snout, sew on the belly! You’ll always want to sew on the snout first, guaranteeing that the belly won’t be too high or too low. 6. Once you’ve decorated the front, place both sides together with the outsides facing in and sew them together, leaving a small gap at the bottom. After you’ve sewn your fox together, flip him inside out and fill with stuffing! Last, hand stitch the opening. All done!

 

Try adding different details and embellishments to give your plush fox doll cute personalities!

Last year, I featured a series entitled “Exploded Flowers” by Fong Qi Wei. The artist has launched a new collection of floral work that includes remakes of famous art pieces, such as “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Katsushika Hokusai and “Sunflowers” by Vincent van Gogh. They look really fantastic and so beautiful!

Amazing Underwater Hotel Room!

 

Underwater Hotel Room

 

Am I the only one who wants to:
– Sleep in an underwater hotel room?
– Eat in an underwater restaurant?
– Take crazy photos of the whole experience?

 

Surely not! I’ve heard there are more and more of these kinds of  underwater hotels and restaurants opening up… this one is in Vegas… it’s a cool passageway in an aquarium under Mandalay Bay….
