Week 5!

This week we are stitching the…

Sleepy Fox

You will need the following colours…

#433, #921, #3866, #3756

Use 2 strands throughout unless stated otherwise.

Start by Stitching the tree…

#433: Split stitch around the edges of the tree and branches and then fill in the trunk and branches with split stitch to finish.

Stitching the fox…

#921: Split stitch the body/tail – start at the right edge and curve your stitches down and around to imagine the direction of the body and fur as the tail is whipped around.

Once the orange is complete, #3866: split stitch the 2 sides of the face and the tip of the tail.

To complete, #921: Split stitch the centre head in a downwards direction towards the nose.

For the Ears: #921 Fly Stitch to form the point of the ear and then in #310 do a smaller fly stitch inside each ear to complete.

#310: Straight stitch the eyes and nose.

Your Sleepy Fox is all complete. To finish the block back stitch the outer edge in #3756…
