Lil Foxes for Mom

Mother's Day Gift

I was really glad to be able to whip this up for my mom for
Mother's Day gift this year. She has been a great
mother for three of us, me and my young sisters
and I thought I'd express my appreciation by making
a wall hanging for her. I used this lil fox pattern
I had purchased awhile back from the super talented
Sonja of artisania. Have you seen her foxes in love mini
quilt and Anne Marie's take on the pattern here?
I couldn't wait any longer after seeing those cute foxes.


Mother's Day Gift

Do you see that these three foxes are missing something?
First of all, the tip of the tail of each lil one is not existing.
This was completely an accident, but I'll tell my mom
that it's because only a very cool mom can have
a gorgeous tail that is not cracked. And these guys
are missing snouts because I just didn't have
buttons suitable for them, but I'll tell her that that's
another thing only mom can have because she is
more special and sophisticated than us. lol.
And I do know that she will look at me with suspicious eyes.

Mother's Day Gift

I didn't realize how nicely the teapot fabric
matched with the leaves fabric I used to make
a binding tape for it until it was all finished.
She might actually like this side better.


Mother's Day Gift

I really wanted to make another one
to give to my mother-in-law who is also a great mother
of three, but I simply run out of time.
Kim, you might get something better in the mail though!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a nice weekend :)

  32. Hi!Ayumi -san,
    You're super cool!!!
    I love your works ☆

    Thanks for always,
    i sent Japanese chestnut sweets to my mother,
    (she has her favorite brand in Nagano,so
    i bought them furtively by netshopping )
    she seemed happy with lots of sweets
    but my mother keeps good shape for long time,
    it's all my family's mystery,
    why doesn't she become fat!?

    See you then,
    (*^^*)
