Foxy 'Broiders!

I promise this won't turn into an embroidery blog, but I will say that embroidery is not unlike drawing, just with thread. You're basically just making little pictures - lines, fills, tone, hue. I made this pattern for my costuming partner-in-crime, who loves foxes. As you can see, the style of the fox is similiar to the owl I did yesterday. This one is a bit more "full" and complex than the owl, so I might have to add to mine a bit. Mags and I go to faire and other costumey events together, so we'll be sortof "matching" with the renegade anachronistic hand-embroidered cauls. Gotta love it :-)
