A Little Fox

I pop today to say hello and to share some very cute project with you. Do you have moments to try some other craft activities?  Well, my mind is completely hooked to all kind of crafts. 
I walk down the high street the other day and sow a beautiful shopping window display arranged in orange colours, that gave me an idea to work with some orange felt. And suddenly my project was born. Let's make a little fox brooch! 
Fiskarettes launching their Colour Challenge. They mixed really beautiful colours for us to play. 

You can play too if you would like. It's very easy, go to their FB page Fiskarettes UK and follow the instructions. There is a fabulous price for one lucky winner at the end of the month! 

 And here is my project:  

Die cut two fox bodies one from orange felt and the other one from orange foam. Use white felt for belly, face and tale. Die cut two white bellies one is for the safety pin covering. Finish die cutting eyes and nose from dark blue felt.

Adhere the felt fox on to foam fox. I was using a heat gun. 
Why foam base? It's holding nicely shape and stability of brooch. 

Add white parts like belly, face and tale and stick eyes and nose.

Turn the brooch and fix safety pin. I used again my hot gun.

Cover safety pin with the spare white felt belly.

Die cut a flower. You can choose a colour it suits you the best. Place the flower to your hat, coat,  jacket or bag and pin the brooch.

And you finished! :0)

Hope you liked my tutorial. Wish you all beautiful day!
