Foxy by Amy Friend

I wanted to share this Foxy zip bag!  I made it a few months ago for the Zakka issue of Fat Quarterly magazine which you can now purchase here.   The complete pattern with templates is provided in the ezine.   I made an adorable fox with it’s tail wrapped around the other side.  It was inspired by a ring I saw online where a dog wraps around your finger so you see the head and the tail on the front.

The fox is appliqued with little button eyes.  I added some free motion quilting stitching to the left side that reads “foxy” just for fun.

It was the perfect chance to use the cute orange strawberries for the lining with a little lace for the pull.  My zipper is from Zipit!

I hope you have as much fun making one as I did!
