What Does a Fox Say? Free Applique Template

What Does a Fox Say? Free Applique Template

I don’t know about you, but I find myself singing that darn song at least once per day!  My boys especially think its funny, then obnoxious, then it’s funny again.  You can never tell!

What does a fox say?

Yeah, well. To help with the obsession and the fact that all my kids love/hate the song, how about a little applique project.

It’s fairly simple, with only a handful of template to cut and sew.  Dig around in your stash and find some cute word fabric.  Mine is a bunch of quilt block mumbo jumbo– I’m sure the boys wished I could have found a different print, but I used what I had on hand.

The other colors I chose were based on their quilts {you can find the tutorial here on Moda Bake Shop}.

I put my applique on a pillow, it’s small- travel size, but perfect for evening book reading and hanging out.  Not fluffy like a girl.

Feel free to sew it on anything you would like.
