    Foxy Pillow & wwyd

    I can't believe I did it! This is my first experience using freezer paper, and it turned out wonderfully better than I anticipated. I used this tutorial http://www.twiddletails.com/store/in...age=page&id=21, and drew up the fox based on another fox I saw online. While it was a little slow going at first while I figured out a new techinique, I was surprised how it came together so fast!

    It's going to be a pillow, 12x16.


    now for the wwyd...
    I want to ad a cute bow:
    pink


    baby blue


    navy blue


    or something else?

    I like pink or light blue. Not sure on the whiskers. I love your little fox! Thanks for the link.

    It's adorable! Good job and if I was going to put on a bow, I think maybe turquoise? I think that would go with the shades of yellow and green well? Or maybe leave it plain? It's really cute.

    ooh, turquoise! I just threw a few bows on that I had made up from a previous project, I'll have to look at my ribbon and see what I have.

    thanks everyone!

    Adorable. I'd skip the whiskers, you don't want it to look like a cat.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I'm thinking you may be right...kinda wished I had used a more orangey color, but it's what I had kicking around for an impromptu gift.

    It's just adorable! I would try a purple bow. Because it is a graphic design, I would not put on whiskers. That would tend to make it too fussy looking.

    I would say no whiskers - and I liked all of the bows you showed. Although I think I would choose either the pink or the light blue - I love the colour of the navy, but think it might be a little strong

    Great work though!
