The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
what an amazing sentence this is !
And who ever invented it ???
I remember when I first saw it
(waaaaaaaaay back in highschool probably)
I could hardly believe
that all the letters of the alphabet
are in such a short sentence !
(ha, check for yourself, if you don't believe me)
Here is another brown fox (though not so quick)
still soapy and wet
but nearly finished !
Making daughters wet felted cats was so much fun
that I couldn't wait to give it another go
a fox this time.
(though Gabi's PDF is for cats,
a fox should be made in a similar way)
I love foxes
I love the way they walk, love their wit, love their colour.
I know : when you have a farm with chickens,
you probably don't love foxes.
It's a predator no doubt,
but lots of other beautiful animals are.
"The making of the fox" ..... with an interested spectator ...
(ah, the white blob on Bagheera's face was a spec of soap on the lens)
It'a a challenge to get two equally large ears !
Although I didn't have any black "Bergschafwolle"
the dark gray colour with which I " built" the frame
worked well enough
Here he is (or she) rinsed, dried in a towel, shaped again
and waiting till he's totally dry.
(Then the last akward job : making the nose mouth and eyes !
with a felting needle this time)
