Oooh, Foxy Lady!

My daughter will be going away next weekend for her first Brownies camp!  She is very excited, but also a bit nervous.  She told me that she was worried that she would miss me too much to be gone for two nights.  I looked over the list of things they are to pack and one of the items was a small pillow. She has always been fond of a particular fabric I have in my fabric box that is a purple fleece with foxes on it.  So I thought it might help to have a Made By Mama pillow covered in a fabric she loves.

The list also says that they can bring a stuffed animal if they choose.  I had bought this fox pattern from Forever Stitchin (who has other awesome patterns you should check out), and I already had a yarn that is just perfect for a fox on hand, so I got to hookin'!

Since they are camping, I thought she might like her fox to have a "sleeping bag" of her own.  So I put one together from the fabric that I made her pillow with, and now she has a little camping care package that should hopefully help ease her worries of being away from home!


  1. Such a lovely gift. I love the plump 'squoooshy-ness' of the fox pattern. The whole ensemble looks great. Wishing you well.

  2. Hi Darrah,
    It's been a year since I last saw a post from you. I hope everything is ok in your world. Thinking of you and wondering how you are...
