Athanasius Steward Fox Sewing Kit – Miadolla
You can create the adorable Athanasius Steward Fox from the gorgeous sewing kit from the Russian Miadolla range and contains everything you need to make a cute, jointed fox teddy who stands approximately 21cm (8 1/4″) tall. Athanasius is made from plush fabric, stuffed with traditional wood wool (and a little steel weighting) and has moveable arms, legs and head.
Miadolla say “Look into Athanasius’ eyes and see how punctual and responsible he is! These are the character traits essential for a person on the position of a house manager. Athanasius ensures none of the house occupants have technical problems and makes significant notes in his jotter that is hidden in his bag. Athanasius always keeps things in order!”.
The kit contains a pattern, all materials and comprehensive instructions to guide you through the processes to make your fox. The kit also includes the patterns, instructions and materials to make his clothes, shoes and accessories too.
You can sew Athanasius completely by hand (back stitch is the main stitch used) or on a sewing machine (there will be a little hand sewing needed). The kit is also supported by some great ‘How to do it’ videos on our website if you prefer more visual ways of learning.
Your kit includes all of the materials you need:-.
- full sized pattern
- detailed instruction with pictures
- plush fabric
- 100% cotton fabric
- jersey fabric
- denim fabric
- faux leather
- cotter pin joints
- sewing threads
- plastic eyes
- sewing needle
- wood wool (for the stuffing)
- steel weighting
Equipment you will need to make your fox:
- A pair of paper scissors
- A pair of embroidery scissors
- Round nosed pliers
- Glue (for the shoes)
- Tailor’s chalk or an air erasable pen (to mark around your pattern pieces)
To complete this project, the maker will need to be able:
. to hand sew or be able to use a sewing machine
. to feel confident working with small, ‘fiddly’ pieces!
*Because this kit contains bead eyes and steel weighting, it is not suitable as a toy.
