White and fuzzy

For starters, I wish you all a very happy New Year! My previous post was titled ‘It’s almost Christmas’ but that lovely period is behind us now. I had a jolly good time and still hear the Mary Poppins songs playing in my head.Β

I absolutely feel delighted to start the year with a new animal to make, a very wintery creature, the arctic fox. He will be very different from Flam the fox, as arctic foxes have much more subtile features. Their ears and noses are smaller than the ones of red foxes, to prevent them from freezing, and they have an incredible thick and fuzzy coat. I’m sure this little fox will have a brushed tail and maybe I will brush him all over to make him extra fluffy and soft. And if he asks me for one, I will make him a nice warm scarf like his red cousin.

For 2015 I have a lot of new creatures in mind. Hamsters and guinea pigs, a Mr. ratty, a polecat, maybe some more water creatures and much more. If anyone ever feels I am missing an animal, do let me know, I’m very curious what you think and maybe I will make the animal.

  1. Sounds great! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. I’m sure he’ll be lovely. I think a platypus would be quite cool. I imagine it would be an interesting one to make πŸ™‚

    We are very excited for an arctic fox here! I could also suggest other arctic animals: arctic hare, and polar bear. Ooooh a walrus would be interesting and a bit of a change from the ‘sitting up shape’ to a ‘lying down shape’. But hey, we are covered in snow here and I guess my brain is in a very ‘white and fluffy’ place right now, any animal is good by me, I love them all :).

      Nathalie, how are you? I’m glad you like the arctic fox, I have his head almost finished, first brushed it and then cut the long hairs. Now he looks utterly soft and cuddly. I very much love arctic hares, they are such beauties, polar bears too. But walrusses….eh, especially the males I find kind of repulsive….so no walrus pattern. The polecat however will be a lying down animal I think πŸ™‚

      Cheers, Sonja.

        I’ll forgive you the walrus, no worries ;). Repulsion is a funny thing – you’ve designed a spider, and I can’t even contemplate making it, I hate spiders so much! ha!!

    I’d love to see a koala bear πŸ™‚ I just discovered you recently and have started my first animal, the delightful rabbit! I can’t wait to try out some of your others, you are very talented!
