Hello

I made a foxy pin!



A few weeks ago I saw the most amazing vintage stitched waistcoat, covered in lots and lots of foxes! 



Inspired by this I drew up a chart & made myself a badge.  I don't think i've got it in me to cover a whole waistcoat!!!  The original waistcoat had little beads for eyes, but I just made my badge flat.  I used 22 count aida, and it is a 1 inch pin badge.





C&C welcome

I wish!  Cheesy 

No, it was part of a collection belonging to a local textile historian.  I think its 18th or 19th century.  It is pretty amazing!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
