Ikea fabric

I have this love/hate relationship with Ikea. Walking through Ikea makes me crazy! But I'll make that crazy walk to get some awesome Ikea fabrics! I purchased this fabric here from Ikea. More Ikea fabric love.
I knew what I wanted to do with it right away - cut it all up into little plushies!
I cut around the fox and picked out some Anna Marie Horner Flannel fabric I had for the backside of the plushie. I embroidered Rachel's name right on the fox, then sewed up around the fox, leaving an opening to stuff it! Tada! Quick and Cute!
This fabric had foxes, squirrels, and bunnies on it! Danny, the squirrels will be for you! I made the this sly little fox for my little cousin Rachel, whose last name is Fox. I love finding fox stuff for my cousins! More foxy stuff here and here.
Can't wait to give it to her! And I can't wait to make a few more!

I'm so glad everyone liked the Candy Sushi! If you make some send me the photos to post! I can't wait to see what you can up with! Oh and Hello! to the sweetest Starbucks gal who loved the candy sushi yesterday at the Starbucks drive thru! :) she's going to make them for her boyfriend's birthday! Pretty cute! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

What a cute idea for the fabric! I love it.

Also, Ikea makes me feel weird. It is always crowded and I get confused. lol But, I'm a dork and just need to chill, huh?

Hi! I didn't make the sushi, my Son made it tonight! I posted it on my blog, as he was so tickled with it! The fruit roll ups really peeved me and I threw a bit of a fit as they were all sticky like on the paper, but he was so thrilled! Thank you for posting the tutorial!
Amy, who always reads your blog!

i got the same fabric for the baby room but it still sits there to be sewed..great idea for a toy!

That is so cute, I can't even stand it. Lovelovelove!
Since sewing is terrifying to me, I usually skip the fabric section. It breaks my heart too because they have such cute stuff. Problem is, I've never won a battle with my sewing machine. Not ever!
I bought the cutest no-sew curtains there last week. I can't find a picture on Ikea's site. I'll take a picture of mine and show you though. They're super cute.
Ok enough babbling from me.

I really lliked the fox you made. I think that making animals from Ikea fabric is very doable and lots of fun. It is also a good thing that the Ikea stores are so tedious; otherwise, I would be buying more fabric than I could ever use.
