Meet Mr. Basil Fox


I am pleased to introduce you to Mr. Basil Fox. He was so much fun to make. There are definitely a few little quirks that prove he is handmade, but I am pretty sure my little man is going to love him anyway.

How is your Christmas making coming along?

  4. He is sooo cute!! I've never heard of those kits- will have to check it out. We have quite a few homemade gifts we have yet to accomplish- some I'm not worried to much about, but one we are quite behind on!

  7. I'm so looking forward to starting on my Maggie Rabbit once I am on my summer holidays. I'm off work for a month in January so can't wait to have a few slow days of crafting, reading and tea! Basil Fox is lovely. I'm really impressed by Alicia's kits.

    1. A whole month off work, whoo hoooo!!! You will have so much fun with Maggie Rabbit. Mr. Basil was a little more finicky than Maggie, but still lots of fun to make.

      Enjoy your crafting.
