I maintain that the word "face" is tied in first place with "pickle bucket" for funniest word in the English language.
For a demonstration of the funniness of the word "face" you can watch the trailer for movie The Good Girl
(start at 20 seconds and watch until 30 seconds). "It's called Cirque du Face, which means circus of the face. It's all the rage with the Frenchies." Ha! I love that I have something to say when we see someone covered in ridiculous makeup walking down the street.
Anyway ... fennec fox stuffies. That's why you're here, right?
To design the face, I started with a sketch. I tried to pick out the main shapes that make up a fennec fox face. Then I cut out shapes in colored felt.
Sewing those shapes on is not easy. You want them to be in exactly the right place, but it's hard to do if you try sewing on one piece at a time. And, with such tiny bits, using pins to hold down your parts can cause bunching and skewing that would leave your fox looking wonky-eyed.
My tip is to baste the shapes into place with one or two long, loose stitches. Once you have everything where you want it and you like what you see, you can start sewing everything permanently into place.
Ta da!p.s. I totally forgot "fingertube". Looks like I have a three-way tie at the top!
