Foxy Valentine's Day ?

Hi !

A Happy Valentine's Day today ! 
I hope you all got spoiled by your special one !
Or you took the chance to surprise a special person with a nice gift or something handmade.

Although I have no new Valentine's Day crochet patterns to show you, 
I do have a brand new pattern in my shop, jay ! 

A dear co-worker of  mine requested me to create a fox plushie a while ago.
It was a baby shower gift for a friend and he wanted it to be something special.

He loves hand made toys and plushies and already knew my work from my Facebook page.

Take a look if you're interested : Millionbells on Facebook

I think the fox turned out really nice and my co-worker loved it !   :-D

This fox was made using eyelash yarn (SMC Brazilia) and regular acrylic yarn (8 ply / DK) from Stylecraft Special DK (my favorite yarn !) and crochet hook D (3.5 mm) 
and turned out to be approx. 9" (23 cm) tall.

Only single crochet stitches were used to create this fox, so the pattern is pretty easy.
The challenge though will be crocheting the eyelash yarn. :-)
But you could easily substitute the eyelash for regular yarn; the fox will be just as lovely !

More pictures and info can be found in my Etsy shop and in my Ravelry store

Thanks fro reading ! 

XOXO Marjan.
