TGIFF - Sleepy Fox Pillow

Oops...I made another pillow.  😊  I had a Dreami (Drop Everything and Make It) moment this week.  I've been wanting to make the Sleepy Fox pattern by Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop for some time.  And this was the week I had to make it.  This will be a birthday gift, and a pillow will be more appreciated and used than a wall hanging.

I followed the colour scheme in the pattern:  Kona Creamsicle, Flame, Paprika, White, Black, and Silver.  Here's what he looked like before quilting -- adorable.

Some simple organic wavy lines for a quick finish.  And besides I didn't have any other ides on how to quilt it.

I've been putting bindings on my recent pillows so there are no raw edges inside to become frayed when the cover is washed.

And because he's so darn cute, a few more photos.

If you have a finish this week, consider sharing it at:

  1. Fox is all curled up and looking so cute.

  2. He really is cute! Great finish! :-)

  3. He is super adorable. Since my married name means "fox" in German, I do have a crush on all foxes, and this sleeping one is super adorable. I'm sure it will be a really loved birthday gift!

  4. He's gorgeous. I love the pose and he is massively cute.

  5. Oh my gosh, I just love this. He's really so cute!

  6. He's just adorable Anja! The black binding is the perfect finishing touch.

  7. Such an adorable pillow!! The binding is a great finishing touch to the pillow.

  8. Super cute, love the black binding 😍😍😍

  9. Oh my goodness that is cute. Aren't you going to make more such cutie pies? How can you stop at just one?

  10. Wow, Anja!
    Gorgeous little fox! I like the way you finished it, great quilting!

  11. I love the way the black binding frames it. He looks like he will open one eye and wink at me any minute.

  12. Hopped over from 2020 to see this from 2018 Finishes and yep Foxy is so darn adorable. I have the pattern (somewhere) and must make it now. Thanks
