Woodland creatures seem to be a firm favourite with many crafters of late, no more than the enchanting english red fox. Here are our favourite foxy picks from northern folk.

Woodland Fox Cushion by Nicola Rowlands

Made in Manchester

We love this fox illustration by Nicola Rowlands. The design is printed onto heavy twill fabric then sewn and stuffed up north in Manchester. Great find for any cushion hoarder (ahem, us).

Foxy Feb Zine by Lyndsey Green

We love Lynsey Green’s Zines! This edition features lots of interesting facts about foxes. She says its aim is to educate that they aren’t pests that need to controlled by hunting. For each zine Lyndsey donates 10% to League Against Cruel Sports (LACS). Great stuff.
