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.
