Fido the fox /Fido, der Fuchs

Besides cats my favorite animals are foxes (bunnies aren’t my favorites – I’m only making them because they are my daughter’s favorite animals. As a child I had a huge super cute bunny called „Willy“ who died because of a sad accident – and for my daughter this bunny is like the godfather of all bunnies and his story is told several times a week „Hasi Willy who was a brave bunny and fell on a stone and died…“. And every bunny I’m making is a brave „Hasi Willy“ :-)).

But foxes I really like. In fairy tales and children’s songs they are usually the „black sheep“ of the forest animals, a mean and devious one who steals and kills from behind. But he is not just devious – he is also very smart. Most of you remember Reineke Fuchs/Rénert the Fox. Well, he is surely not someone you want to be friend with, not a fair player at all – but in the end he is the one who wins :-)

Today people know that foxes aren’t devious or mean at all – but they are amazing animal that care very good about their kids (there is a very nice story about a fox mother who were fighting for her caught cub written by Ernest Thompson Seton).

I always wanted to make a RevoluzZza fox – and now I finally did it. And I really like him: Fido the fox. As it’s pretty cold outside he is wearing a  hand knitted scarf – and that’s special because I really cannot knit very good. Actually scarfs are the only things I can knit :-)

I hope you like Fido the fox, too – as I plan to create some fox siblings for him. He will be available in my shop next week.

  4. Hannah hat sich im Kindergarten in der Eulen-Gruppe den Fuchs als Motiv ausgesucht. Noch smarter konnte ihre Wahl nicht sein. ;-) Und „Schlaufuchs“ oder „fuchsig“ sind ja nun auch nett gemeinte Begriffe.

    Und Dein Fuchs ist großartig! Das Gesicht ist Dir supergut gelungen, sehr sympathisch!

  9. he is adorable, I love foxes too because they remind me of my grandfather, he had a family of town foxes that would come and visit him at night. he would set up all kinds of obstacles for the fox to work out before they could get the food, he would sit and wait for her to come so he could see how she would do!

    Liebe Grüße
