Creating Wool Foxes for a Community of Little Readers


Fox Group

Local teens + HANDMAKERY came together to create over 17 soft sculptures using reclaimed wools to give back to their community!  Each teen created a fox to live at the local library for children to read with, while visiting the library.  The process of hand-stitching these little woodland creatures took several weeks of LOVE + PATIENCE + DEDICATION + HARD WORK + HANDWORK + GIVING OF THE HEART  ♥.  Each fox is very unique and includes a photo of the artist + the name and personality of the fox!  Check these out at the local, NEW,  library!  {Photos of the process, foxes + delivery below.}

Storytime for tots just happened to be getting started as the makers + creators delivered their fox.  Each teen got to share their soft sculpture with a little one to see the excitement + love, firsthand.  Which one would you choose?  It would sure be a hard decision!  As an artist, it is not easy to part with something one has created and is so proud of; such a special and giving group to create these little treasures for “little ones” within their community!
