Orange Jewel Fox : :

Yesterday was all about Birthday Crown making, with time to make just one new fox pillow! This time I used a little of my Jewels in Orange by Lizzy House and some soft, dark purple wool.

Purple Fox

These Jewel prints are one of my all time favorites! Aren't they pretty?! After doing a quick search with my sponsors, I found that Hawthorne Threads has a pretty nice selection still available!

Orange & Purple is so fun for Fall decorating, I just couldn't resist!

Orange Jewels & Purple

I asked last night on facebook for a little approval of my fabric choice for finishing, and mostly everyone agreed! If you chimed in, thank you!!

Fox & Fabrics

I think it was a good choice! I actually had just enough fabric to finish the back, so it seemed too perfect not to finally use it up.

Finished with Flowers

This new fox pillow is finished and headed to my etsy!

New Fox

Today, I'm going over to the new house with my best friend, to measure and begin to make decorating plans. I'll try to get some good before pics to share of what my new sewing space will look like. I can tell you, it's about 3-4 times bigger than what I have now!

I even scored this perfect furniture piece for new fabric storage -- $40!! How amazing is that?!

My New Fabric Shelf

Currently, it's a home for some of my Pyrex with a bunch of random things set on top. We've started packing, so everything is out of sorts right now. Including me!!

Take care! Maureen

    1. I buy it wholesale and plan to sell it eventually! I thought I would be by now, but with us buying a house and with all the things we already have to move -- ordering a truck load of felt didn't sound like the best idea!! :) Soon!!

  10. The little fox just pops against the purple! I'm a little jealous of that cabinet! I wish I could find something for that price for my fabric. I'm just so excited for you about the house and can't wait to see pictures!

    1. No, I'm not!! And, I am usually not this lucky! They were only asking $50, but I had to try to get a better deal. It even has lights in the inside, I love it!!
