Sometimes I wish I had done as I intended and bought mostly handcrafted-quality toys, like a nice set of wooden building blocks. Well, I'm starting now! This is his new fox:
teddy bear pattern you can find here (It's a pdf so it may take a couple minutes to load), and then altered the ears to be pointy and added a tail. It took me about an hour and didn't cost me a penny since I used materials I already had!
Just a tip if you decide to use that pattern which may not be evident to beginning sewers: when you're sewing the front center pieces together, only sew the front of the face and the belly, leaving the legs and the little strip on the top of the head free for when you put the front and back together.
