Introducing Ava

I'm so excited to introduce you to Ava the fox. She was created after Sew to Speak announced their theme for their annual softie contest. I had her face in my head immediately and with the help of Brian, drafted her out and she was thus created.

I am so thrilled with how she came out. I was able to pull everything from my stash which made it even better because it was pretty late at night and no stores were open when I was itching to start sewing. And, it's hard to have to wait sometimes to go buy fabric when you want to start like now!

She has little mary jane shoes and her skirt is made out of vintage fabric with little pink roses on it that I picked up at a flea market originally for a dress for Elise. That's still the plan, but even sweeter now that she'll match her little fox. 

Elise saw her in transit when we were dropping her off at the store to turn her in and was just itching to get her hands on Ava......which thrilled me even more because after the contest is said and done, she'll be Elise's to snuggle up with and invite to tea parties along with Ruby Lou.

So, if you live in the Columbus area please swing by Sew to speak Dec. 8-15 and vote for Ava.

Also check out other great ideas here at Savy Southern Style and I'll also be linking up later this week.
