Basil Fox Back in Business

comments: 13


Just a quick note to let you know that dapper little Mr. Basil Fox's softie kit is back in the shop with several shirt options (even a new, 1/4" magenta gingham, which is adorable). I also added some fabric/yarn options to Maggie Rabbit (who was sold out, too, in case you were waiting for her) and Juniper Kitty. Just click on the little thumbnail photos on the product pages to see the options, and be sure to choose them from the drop-down menu when ordering!

Thank you! I'll be back soon with a post, but I'm doing some housekeeping today, so . . . working on my to-do list! :) Feels good. Xox


Your little stuffed critters are so cute! I love all the fabric patterns and colors!

Such a handsome chap! :)

They are so gorgeous, I have the pattern and I am hoping to get a couple made before Christmas for gifts. x

I need to do some housekeeping, too!! Ugh!!!

Yes, I was pleased to get the newsletter! Aw, the softies you make are so sweet, so dear. I am wishing for the sweetie pie sampler. I shall buy it soon!

Three cheers for you - getting things in order has always lifted my spirits, hope it does the same for you.
The weather has promised to cool off for a few days - so I'm outside today to tidy up the backyard.

Mr. Basil is a fine looking woodsy fellow - he's ready for the cool Fall breezes.

I got a cuteness overload reading your wonderful blog. Inspiring.

I find your blog to be beautiful and completely nonjudgmental. So nice to visit a safe place online where I can pause and enjoy lovely crafts, an occasional delicious recipe, and inspiration for my home and life. I just had one question about your darling softie kits: Do I need to sew the clothes with a sewing machine? You see, I don't own one and have no idea where I could carve out a space for one in my very small house. Do you think it would be possible for me to hand sew the clothes? I think my daughter would adore one of these dolls for her birthday this fall! :)

In my other life, I make all of your sweet critters, then host humble tea parties and invite children to join the fun.
Everyone leaves with a new friend. Lovely to imagine.

I just have to tell you that your bunny is totally awesome! I have had so much fun reading your posts about your little girl. How wonderful that she has come into your lives. She is a lucky little girl. I am so excited since I have a grandchild coming in December. I can't wait to meet this little munchkin. On Father's Day, we are having the gender reveal cake, so that will be so special. Thanks for all your wonderful posts. You are truly an amazing writer.

He is one handsome fellow - you always do such a beautiful job, Alicia.
I get the cleaning bug too this time of year. At least, for a little while.

He is so cute, I can't even stand it! :)

Hi, Alicia-
