For the clever fox we first crochet the head and the body in one rush. Then the arms, legs, ears, tail and snout will follow. At last all pieces will be sewn together and your crocheted clever fox is already done.
After you finished the head, you can go on with the body of the crocheted clever fox. Here we also work in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches only.
After you finished crocheting all this you are sitting in front of many pieces. To make assembling them easier, you can put the parts together with pins at first. This way you can make changes easily, if you don’t like the positioning.
Next you put the snout in the middle between the eyes to sew it on. It is helpful to attach the snout once around with pins. Use the long tail of the snout for sewing and work once around and pull off the pins one after the other. When you are next to the end, you can fill and stuff the snout.
Now you can sew the ears to the head. They wont be filled, but folded flat. The open site is placed on the right and the left side on the top of the head. Both ears are in one line parallel to the eyes, seen from the top.
Then you can sew on the arms right under the head. You can fold them flat and sew them horizontally. Or you make them movable with the pattern for thread joints. The legs will be foldet and sewn in one line to the middle of the bottom of the body.
The tail will be sewn at the middle of the back. Fold down the open end and sew it horizontal on the back of the body. The tail of the fox is the counterweight to get him seated, so choose the position wise.
At last you can embroider the mouth and the nose with black Darning Yarn. Start with a horizontally stitch for the mouth and embroider then a vertical stitch to the nose. For the nose you stitch as often around two stitches until it has the needed size.
