james and bess said...

what an adorable guy! he would be cuddled and LOVED by my youngest son. i made dolls for the other two before he was born, and haven't made him one, yet. (why, oh why, can't there be more than 24 hours in a day?!) thanks for the chance!

bess :)

SewTara said...

Awww he's so cute! Great job.
I've got a few little ones in mind who would love this little sweetie. I'll have to hold my own draw to decide who gets it!

Laurel said...

oh, wow, mr. fox is such fun! i would have to decide which of my girls would get him - they'd love him!

Jennie said...

He's adorable! I have a 6 year old daughter - but mr. fox seems more suited to my 4 year old son. Or maybe our baby son would grow up to love him. His mushroom print is lovely. Thanks for the giveaway.

Gina said...

He is adorable, I especially like the little tail! If I won, it would go to my younger son, though I have a feeling it would be fought over because they'd both want him!

MamaWestWind said...

He is adorable! I love his fabric. My son Michael loves animals, he would be ecstatic!

Thanks!

Becca

Hannah Laura said...

Would love to have someone to share the adventures of a 19 m and 3 year old boy!!!

Jessica @ Sunny Tuesday said...

Mr. Fox is adorable! My daughter would love snuggling him. She's a big fan of fabric and stuffed animals already!

Kathy H said...

Such a cute fox. My nieces and nephews would come to care for him when they visit but I think I would be the one to make sure he has a great seat to watch what goes on in the house.

thewhimsicalbee said...

My Little Miss Sweet Pea would just adore having this fox to snuggle! He is so cute and I like the variety of fabrics used.

Sew Flippin Cool said...

Absolutely adorable! I have two daughters, Quinby 3 and Pannonica 5 who would love to take care of Mr. Fox.

Pattie Wall said...

This fox has such character! Love the color palette you used. My 4 year old granddaughter loves foxes, especially 'Mr. Fox stories'! She would absolutely LOVE this one and I would deliver it specially to her when I visit her from far away at Christmas time.

Holly U said...

My goodness, how sweet he is! My 4 yo son Zach would love to give him a home among his other stuffed animals.

susanna internicola said...

My 3 year old loves animals and the color green (more like obsessed with green!) So, win-win here.

MacGyver's Lovechild said...

Christina said...

He's adorable and must be difficult to part with! Were he to find his way to my house he would be loved by a little boy who has just turned three and who is looking forward to becoming a big brother in a few months. :)

Michelle {Daydream Believers} said...

How adorable it he?! My two little girls (ages 2 and 4) would LOVE to snuggle and care for him! This sweet fox would be joining an every growing group of well loved and adored softies (or "friends" my girls call them) lol!

Best,
Michelle

Pacas said...

my two daughters (3 and 5 years old) would love it!!

gina said...

Mr. Fox is adorable! He would be well-loved by my 10-month old son... and I'm pretty sure I couldn't resist sneaking in a couple of hugs for Mr. Fox every now and then, too!

Poddle said...

Oh wow, he is beautiful. He would be adored by my four year old daughter. Earlier today I watched as she lined up her dolls and teddies across her pillows to read them a story, and one of them always gets taken to bed with her at night. She chooses a different one each night so your lovely Mr Fox would sometimes get sleepy cuddles but when he didn't he would have several stuffed friends for company instead.

Petra said...

I do believe we need a MrFox in our house...especially the one as cute as this one!

lisawith4 said...

What a cute Mr. Fox. I am sure my nephew would love to cuddle with him at nap time!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

ps. i'm following you now - very cute blog!

Heather said...

My 2 year old would love carrying Mr. Fox around! And I love his tail!

Chris said...

How very adorable and great sewing job! My three year old son would love to give him a new home... I suspect the stuffies I made him would be thrown out of his crib in favour of Mr. Fox! ;o)
soulrunner(at)hotmail(dot)ca

Bailey said...

Kacy said...

How adorable! My son would love caring for Charming Mr. Fox.

Lindsay said...

My little baby girl would love him!

Camille said...

This is the perfect gift for my friend's daughter- who is named the same thing as me! She'd love it!

EverFive said...

Adorable! I have a feeling my oldest, Jude, would love him dearly. He has an ASD but he's so caring, he has many "babies" that help him with his different emotions.
Heyjudesmomma (at) aol.com

Cal said...

So cute! And so much detail. My little boy would care for him, or maybe his big sister would call him hers.

Kristy said...

Oh I adore him! And I know my lil' fella would too! Thanks for the chance to win! Love the fabrics you've used!

Rie said...

I'd love to adopt Mr Fox, we'd love him & care for him & he'd never ever go hungry! We're in Tasmania, Australia!

Desi @ Wee Share said...

He is so sweet. The little fox would go to Raileigh, a sweet 3 year old, who would love him very much :)

Desi
weeshareblog@gmail.com

jojoebi said...

he is very sweet and I have a soft spot for foxes, they remind me of my grandfather who used to train a city fox that came into his garden. So I would selfishly keep him for myself and he would live in my studio

Lindsay said...

We'd love to give Mr. Fox a home. I have a one year old daughter who loves animals and who I have no doubt would like Mr. Fox.

Kristi said...

My two year old loves animals, and I have no doubt he would share lots of hugs with Mr. Fox and "read" him lots of stories.

sandyandcosmo said...

My granddaughter would love this little guy!

Julie said...

Mr. Fox is adorable.

A rambunctious toddler would be the happy care taker of Mr. Fox at our house. He may take a beating, or spend some time jammed under the couch. But that doesn't mean that we love him any less. Upon discovering the hidden whereabouts of Mr. Fox - mommy would promptly give him a bath and tuck him in with toddler for the night. ;)

littlepinkcupcakes said...

My 6 year would love this, She would love the heck out! She treasures all of her stuffies!

Amber said...

I love your Mister Fox. I think he'd feel very cozy, indeed, at my house. He'd have some friends to keep him company - Delores the dinosaur among others and giant pumpkin pillows to sit on. Ooh! He's soo charming!

Sarah@Dolls And Daydreams said...

So glad you enjoyed my pattern :)

Take care and happy handmade holidays!

Sarah x

Debra said...

I just love him! He would be my sewing companion.

elflyn said...

He would be loved and cared for by three little men ages 7, 5, and 2. But he would have to share them with some dinosaurs and teddies.

Melissa said...

Oh my! Mr. Fox is darling! If we should be so lucky to win him, he would be shared by my 2 little kids and would be in good company with their Pooh Bear, Bunz the bunny and Lolo the lamb. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

Rookie said...

Well hello there Mr Fox. You are such a gentlemen I did not even see you come in. Please sit. Tea? Two sugars and cream I presume? Here you go.

I hear that you are looking for a new home? Well, I would highly recommend my own. It is quiet and peaceful and all the toys in here are named, loved and without batteries. Most are soft and cuddly, but there is also a variety of wooden and page-filled ones.

Your main caretaker would be me - I'll admit that freely. Grand plans are made with each new adopted friend, but Mommy is the one that makes sure there are regular baths and equal playtime.

Is this a proposition you are interested in? You will not regret it I can assure you :)

Lora said...

I think he would love to come live at the beach. We do have some red foxes in our neighborhood (and no more little bunnies, unfortunately). He would sleep with my 2 boys.

mylastrolo said...

i <3 your little guy particularly his woodland body. He would be perfect for my little girl who coincidentally is called Tegan Fox. So could i win your Mr Fox for my Missy Fox?

RyanSarahN said...

So adorable! My little Elijah would be taking care of him - he's almost one, just learning how to walk, and needs some toys of his own that haven't belonged to his older sister. Thanks for the chance to win! ryansarahn at gmail dot com

Binks said...

Mr. Fox is awesomely adorable. I really love his (ahem...) backside, it's so detailed and beautiful. Is it bad that I would be taking care of him... I'm a 24 year old crafter. I'm in love with the resurgence of softies that are unique, eclectic, and well constructed. LOVE!

baukje said...

This foxie should be a perfect gift for our granddaughter in Holland, she is now 11 month.

pippablue said...

He is charming indeed! My two year old would definitely love this little guy, he is mad about animals!

sydthewyd said...

Gah! I LOVE foxes! We have a family of them that lives in our back garden and they are so cute in the spring when the babies come out and play.. I'm so in love with them!

Ashley said...

He is so gorgeous and would find a loving home with my oldest son. He would join him every night amongst his blankies. :-)

Stephanie and Carlos said...

He would very much be cared for by my 3 year old who collects handmade toys! She doesn't have a fox... or a whale actually hehe... they all sleep with her in bed and take turns snuggling at night!!

xo Steph

Sean and Laura said...

Super cute! Love it! Thanks for the giveaway!

Mr. Fox is just spectacular! I would be caring for him if he were to come live with me. He could hang out with my other handmade dolls that I love so much! jinglesells at gmail dot com

lil'monkeysmama said...

I am loving mr. fox. You're right who COULD be grumpy looking at that face. I would let my son keep mr. fox company during the day and I may have to gaze at him in the evenings.

Nata said...

I'd love it, and I'd try to create a whole forest so he's not alone!

Belle + Bee said...

My sweet, sweet, sweet (but wacky) little angel fell down and knocked her two front teeth out of place this morning. She's spent the entire day running from doctor to dentist to dentist, before finally having her two little teeth manually put back in place. She's only two, but has been such a trooper and even gave the dentist a high-five after he pushed those little chompers back in place. I know she'd love to have a new snuggly friend to cuddle with after her ordeal...I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her! Thanks so much for the chance...Mr Fox is Fantastic!
beckymac1 at hotmail dot com

DangAndBlast! said...

Hmm... I know I should say I'd give him to the baby coming next month... but I've got a sweet coworker who's fox crazy (Fiber Foxed on Ravelry, for example).... and she's got a little girl, so it wouldn't be kid-less!

Jennifer Ladd said...

My daughter LOVES stuffed animals. She's such a little mommy to them. She would go crazy for this adorable little guy!!

Anne said...

Mr. Fox is adorable! I know my sweet, quirky girl would love him. Phoebe is 2 and full of mischief! She always hums while she looks at books and colors; and when she is asked what she wants for Christmas she says "green!" Thanks for the chance to win!!

deserae said...

I love Mr Fox! Especially his tail!

Skooks said...

I love it! I've made something using one of her patterns as well and it turned out great. I would give this one to my son. He hasn't gotten a new little friend in a long time.

one sassy mama said...

Thanks for the chance to win such a cute little fox!

Heidi said...

He is totally adorable thanks for the chance to win him Erika! My son has a pair of mama made pants out of the same mushroom fabric that are his absolute favorite...so the fox would be for him if we win, they would match:)

smooze13 said...

my 16mos old daughter would love him. I can picture her carrying him around

Nathan & Bronwyn McLellan said...

Either of my boys (2 yrs and 7 weeks) would love him. Well the younger would grow to love him! We are fascinated with animals that we don't see in other parts of the world (like NZ, where I'm from).

Vanessa at Rescued Goods said...

We would love Mr. Fox! We don't want any real foxes in our yard, as we have 7 hens who won't really get along well with a fox, but the Mr.-so darn cute-we would give him a good home:)

Autie said...

What a great fox! My son would just love him.

bassenav said...

Cute! Cute! Cute! And the widdle tail! I think I'd give him to my younger daughter.

Libby said...

At first I thought he would be for my daughter, Sylvia. But I don't know that she's old enough to really appreciate how awesome he is. So he might live with my niece, Cora, who is a lover of all things whimsical and stuffed animal !

Tricia said...

He is so cute! He would be loved by Jubilee and Hope!

JFibers said...

What a beautiful fox! We are expecting our first baby on Jan. 24th... no names picked out yet but we like to call him/her Herbie for now. Thanks for offering such a great giveaway.

Jamie said...

He is a very charming fox! He would be well loved by my three younguns!

MadameRenard said...

Oh, lovely!!!
My 4 years old niece would love it! She like nature and animals, but I'm sure she haven't a soft fox :)

hueisei said...

Thanks for the chance to win for my son ^^v

gill said...

Mr. Fox is quite the little stud! I would be giving Mr. Fox to my very first niece/nephew. Baby is due in May and I am so very excited!

Jessica said...

I would love to give the fox a home! I have a friend who is having a baby any day... and this would be perfect!

Tamster said...

I have 2 and 4 yr old boys who would love to own Foxy! I can just see him being very well loved by the 2 yr old.

becky said...

For now he would be in the care of our 2.5 year old Emma and as soon as her baby brother can do anything besides eat/sleep/poop I'm sure he'll be more than willing to help take care of him!

Kimberly said...

I love Mr. Fox. He's super fun. I would give him to my 6 year old who loves stuffed animals.Thanks

Amorette said...

this is so sweet- i love the tail too! thanks!

strandkorbtraum said...

I would step down from offering a home to let my cousins' daughter have a chance - my cousins have started lately to enlarge our extended family quite a lot and I can't really keep up with all of them ... It would be quite fitting as she knows all about foxes because her grandma has a lot of hens ...
Thanks for the chance!

jamie w said...

i believe my little zoe would give mr fox a great home. she is 2 1/2 and really starting to love taking care of her animals and dolls. :)

hwscutie said...

My oldest LOVES stuffed animals and begs for one everywhere we go. They are her go to items when she gets to pick out a toy. She is 9 and is still wanting the stuffed animals

We would love to give Mr. Fox a warm home in the snowy state of Wyoming, where he could cuddle all day with one of our three little boys.

I loves Mr. Fox. I'm glad to offered him a place at my home. Thanks for the generous giveaway and a chance to win!

Josée Carrier said...

Love this little fox! I'm sure my sons would live him as well. He has so cute little ears!

Jen said...

This little fox is so cute! I have a 2 year old son who would love it, but I think it's too cute so playtime would be highly supervised :)

StephanieS said...

He will go to Oscar. He will be well taken care of.
Thanks for the chance to win. stephspitzer at gmail dot com

Shana said...

Oh my son Blaze would adore Mr Fox so much. I know I do!!!

Crissy said...

stephka said...

mr fox could live in bed with my son. he would love him so much!

Julia Badgley said...

He's so cute that I felt like laughing out loud (but don't want to wake a sleeping baby). Seriously, I have a goofy grin on my face.
He'd be staying at our house. I'm outnumbered 3:1 by my boys and he could make it 4:1!
Come stay with us Mr. Fox!

Laura said...

My daughter Kate would love this cute little guy. She loves her stuffed "friends" as she calls them.

Brooke Crook said...

My little boy would love to snuggle with Mr. Fox!

Sis-O said...

I would want to care for him especially b/c I love his outfit. However, I am thinking of gifts to give away right now. Perhaps my grandson or nieces Emma, Haven, Sarah, Gabby, Brooke Elizabeth or Katie. Deciding would be the hardest part. Thank you.

skowens (at) sbcglobal (dot) com

Natalie said...

What a cute little guy! My three grandkids would probably fight over him, but of course I would make them share. Thanks for the giveaway.

CMG said...

Mr. Fox would be living with two little boys ages 4 & 6. One of their favorite things to do is snuggle with their animals. Mr. Fox would be well loved here!

Lovely!!!!

Niina said...

I`ve been visitin my friend in Paris for 5 weeks! Mr. Fox would be a fantastic partner for an owl I made for my friend`s 3 year old daughter.

Donna said...

My little 1 year old baby girl's name is Autumn. She has foxes and woodland animals painted on her bedroom wall, and this adorable stuffed animal will go great with the decor, and I'm sure she'd love to snuggle Mr. Fox!

thehappycrochetchic said...

I really like mr. fox, i might have to keep him for myself if I win, but most likely he would go to my youngest Andrew, he has a fascination with animals so mr fox would fit right in and become the best of friends with a little monkey named george :)

Not only is the fox one of my favourite creatures but this style with the cuddly head and moveable legs is my favourite too!

I would love to say that my son would appreciate this little guy but if I won I might just keep him for myself :D

Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

Fun4Me said...

SUPER cute - and so well sewn! He's fantastic! I would be thrilled if someone gave him to me as a gift! (I'm a sucker for handmade dolls.)

tolmema said...

I love foxes, and so does my little girl. She would play with this guy all day whilst calling it "woof". :)

Dreaming Monet said...

three-year-old alice enjoys hours of imaginative play with a couple of her stuffed toys and waldorf doll, inventing scenarios that are simple or mind-bogglingly complex. for her the stuffed toys are very much alive, and this fox is especially animated looking so i know he would immediately be adopted into the fold. what a little charmer.

alice has a six-month-old sister, picasso, who would also love to watch alice playing with this fox and eventually, when she's a little older, would love to play with it as well.

thanks for the chance to win!

annette said...

my daughter would LOVE this!

darbishar said...

What a sweet fox! I would love to give this to my sweet baby girl due in a few weeks. Her older brothers have stuffed animals, but I would like to start her off with some of her own and Mr. Fox would be perfect! Thank you for the opportunity darbishar(at)hotmail(dot)com

The Hungry Crafter said...

He is just DARLING. I would give him to my 6 mo old niece -- I'm sure she would love him (and drool on him!)

Mama Lusco said...

Fun fox! My 3 year-old would love him. Thank you. mamalusco at ortelco dot net
