FREE Fox Coin Purse Pattern and Tutorial

Free Fox Coin Pouch Pattern by GYCT

If your kids (or husband) are anything like mine, they LOVE "What Does the Fox Say?"  My baby girl can even sing along to parts.  (Never mind that my 4 year old knows the entire song.  I blame my husband.)  So I figured for this months FREE pattern, I would make a Fox Coin Pouch.  

Once I was done sewing up this cute fox, my son wouldn't let me have it to take pictures.  Aren't kids fun!!  I am glad he liked it.  I thought, I have got to share.  I know my kid isn't the only one in love with the fox.  So today, you can get the Fox Pattern and Tutorial for FREE too!!!!  (Lucky duck, or should I say Fox.)

Now, unlike last month, I decided to have a few of friends test the pattern for me.  That way I could make it all nice a pretty and I could add it to my shop.  So if you would like the pattern you can grab the FREE Fox Coin Pouch Pattern in our Craftsy Shop.  If you decide to whip up your own adorable fox, you'll need the following items:

Materials Needed:
1/8 yard main fabric
Scrap fabric
Interfacing
Heat n' Bond/Transfer Paper
Zipper (any size will work, but a 5" is best)

Delicious Lemon Bars

Delicious Lemon Bar Recipe at GYCT

I LOVE Lemon.  It is so refreshing and always reminds me of spring.  So of course, when the the weather is cold and I am thinking of spring, I make me some Lemon Bars.  Super fast, super yummy, and a favorite.

Delicious Lemon Bar Recipe at GYCT

First, you'll make the crust.  Combine the flour, powdered sugar and butter in a bowl and cut the butter in.  I use my fingers, but you can use knives or a pastry blender.

Then press the mixture into an 9x13 pan.  Bake it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend.  This is the trick to getting a really smooth topping.  Very important!!

Once the crust is baked, pour the egg mixture over the top and bake it again for 25 minutes.  Then sprinkle with powdered sugar while it cools.

Okay, so about the dress.  It is inspired by the movie Frozen.  However, it is perfect for any little princess you might have.  It has 3 sleeve styles and a cape that can be permanent or detachable.  I like that part.  Especially with little ones who get dirty.  You may not want to always be washing a cape!!

For mine, I had some Sofia the First fabric.  Had it for a bit but wasn't sure what I wanted to use it for.  However, when I saw this pattern, I knew I had to use it.  Many of the dresses where much more formal and made with satin and tulle, but for my 15 month old, not a good idea.  Sofia Won!!

A little more casual look, but I love how it turned out.  The front is flat with little peasant sleeves.  It has a flat front with pointed bodice.  Which is really what makes it Princess like.  Super cute.  Plus there are all those gathers on the skirt!  LOVE IT!

The back has elastic casings which is where the customization for your little one comes it.  Great way to cinch it up if you need to for a skinny minnie.  Overall, it is a great pattern and super fun, especially when you are all done!
