Felt Fob Friday - Fox

Something I learned while making this smug little fox: in Japanese folk tales, leaves are important things for foxes. When a fox puts a leaf on the head and does a somersault, he can transform into anything. Upon learning this I meant to give him a little leaf on his head but I forgot.

And, in honour of shark week (aw, who am I kidding? In honour of Sharknado week, about which everyone at work has been terribly excited):
He looks a bit more like a whale, but you goes with the material at hand. This took under half an hour to make, so if I had the fleece and the inclination I would make a dozen of them and have a sharknado mobile..
