Cunning Fox with teacher Lizzy Pye is designed to enhance your whitework skills with practice in a variety of techniques. Begin with pulled-thread work, using four different stitches in different parts of the design to give texture and depth to the image. Then, work counted satin stitch to give a raised texture, imitating the long fur on the fox’s chest.
Follow that with the application of fabric in a technique sometimes referenced as Carrickmacross (although technically that term would apply to net rather than linen). Surface stitches secure the applied fabric, and then the excess applied fabric is cut away to reveal areas that appear whiter than the ground fabric. More surface stitches are completed and the fox is finished by stitching the eyes, using eyelets and a little trailing.
