I needed a gift for my pastor and his wife and wouldn’t you know it, the baby is nearly 6 months old and I just got around to doing this.

It’s a taggie blankie, flannel squares of cuteness!

I found these squares at JoAnn, in a charm square bundle. What could be easier? Oh look! Here they are! I sewed the squares in strips then joined them – yes, this isn’t a “tutorial” so much as a sharing- but you get the idea!

So after I sewed the squares to make the front and back of the blankie, I sewed strips to make little tags. While this was a bit tedious- measuring, cutting, sewing, turning them right side out- it was worth it to coordinate! You can use ribbon- most people do- and I will probably go back to that in the future.

Anyway, I pinned the “tags” inside and then pinned the front and back together. See that tag in the corner? I had to remove it at the end. It made the corners pucker.

It’s simple and sweet- a nice little “something” to celebrate a ManCub!

I love the U.K. based magazine ‘Mollie Makes’.
Issue thirty-two was waiting for me on the shelf at Joann.

20140102-191625.jpg
The plant in the teacup? Little sewn petals of loveliness.
I love so many things about this publication and it’s one of my few magazine splurges.
I always look forward to discovering the latest issue.

This one has a very sweet kit attached. It has everything one needs to make two adorable fox pins.

20140102-192055.jpg
I happened to pick this up during a camping trip and was delighted to find everything I needed right there in that little pouch. I packed some craft items in the RV, but nothing like I would need for such a project.

Once I got “home” with the magazine, I opened the paper pouch and peeked inside.

Felt? Check.
Thread? Check.
Needle? Check.
No way would they include the pin backs- but oh, yes they did, so….
Pin backs? Check and check!

Would you believe I didn’t even read the magazine before I began cutting and stitching these cuties?

It’s true.

I found the pattern inside and began tracing.

20140102-192830.jpg
My supplies were so limited, but notepaper for tracing worked fine. As did tape for securing the pattern piece.

20140102-193008.jpg
I cut two at once.

20140102-193051.jpg
I sewed on the pin back.

20140102-193137.jpg
And began stitching.

20140102-193218.jpg
My stitches are terrible due to TWO puppies in my lap, no thimble and less than task lighting, but aren’t we supposed to rough it a little when we’re camping? This is as rough as I want!

20140102-193433.jpg
The directions were so easy to follow! I stitched the eyes and nose and voila! I have a fox in my camp!

20140102-193542.jpg

20140102-193554.jpg
Here are my “helpers”.

20140102-193643.jpg
I made the second fox just like the first but I did have to trim the orange one a bit. You can see them here, on the right of the packet.

20140102-193927.jpg
I’ll be taking these two camp foxes home as a reminder of a very special find on this trip!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless!
