Free Pattern Friday: Mama and Baby Foxes

Are foxes still trending? Whatever. They're super cute, trending or not. When I was little I always loved those stuffed animals that had a mother and babies, like puppies or kittens, that cuddled up next to the mom. Remember those?

Mother and Baby Fox


I originally wrote this pattern for Michaels. Simple stitches and soft wool-blend yarn in earthy colors make the project perfect for a Mother's Day gift (you've got so much time!) or a baby's nursery.

Materials List
Tapestry needle
Polyester fiberfill
Embroidery Needle
White felt
White thread
Black embroidery floss

Notes:
The pieces are all crocheted in the round in unjoined spirals. Use a locking stitch marker if necessary to mark the beginning of each round. When you complete a round, move the marker to the loop on your hook and continue crocheting.

  16. I am utilizing HP printer for most recent few months to satisfy my printing just as scanning needs. The performance and the quality of its prints are truly amazing. Be that as it may, because of some undesirable causes, I can't get prints from it for most recent couple of days. As I come to realize that the issue is identified with its drivers so I need to download refreshed printer driver from its site 123.com.setup Be that as it may, as I am new to printer world, so I don't think about the procedure. Along these lines, anyone can help me to get what I need.
