Fun With Foxes

I just finished up another Fox and the Houndstooth quilt for a customer, and before I put away the scraps, I decided to play around with the leftovers and see if I could use up some onesies in my stash.
I fused some Heat and Bond lite on the reverse side of the fabric, cut narrowly around the design, and stitched in matching pale grey thread. Usually I use a machine blanket stitch, but I like the clean, simple lines of the straight stitch in this particular case!

When I appliqué onto onesies, I use a scrap of Warm and Natural batting on the inside to stabilize for stitching, and to give a little dimension. I trim the batting close to the stitches on the reverse side.
I may or may not have gone a little crazy...these were just too fun to make, and are now listed in my Etsy shop!

Linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatutation, Sew Darn Crafty Linky Party, and Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!



  1. visiting from crazy mum quilts, very cool

  2. Those onesies are absolutely adorable!

  3. You are a clever "Fox"-Haha. What a great idea! Especially to add it as a gift with a baby quilt!

  4. Those foxes are beautifully stitched. I agree with you: the straight stitch was an excellent choice. As those foxes are different from each other, a few of them would make a great gift!

  5. Wow! It's so great to see such adorable things being made out of my fabric! Seriously adorable onesies and what a fabulous quilt!
