Sly Fox Scrubby

This Sly Fox Scrubby isn't your standard scrubby pattern. The adorable sparkle in the yarn, shaped like the head of an adorable fox, is the perfect way to make your kitchen pop. Since it's so quick to knit up, you can make two or three of these scrubbies in one afternoon for a woodland-themed kitchen, or to give away as gifts. We love the classic orange coloring, but a gray scrubby would be equally as adorable. This is definitely going to be your next go-to scrubby pattern.

What does the fox say?

I refuse to make scrubbies that aren't animals now since there are too many cute ones available. This is my fave!

Could something like this be made in one piece? I think it's really cute and would love to make one or two, but sewing on the parts doesn't appeal, and I am afraid they would come apart after very much use. Has anyone made scrubbies that have to be sewn together like this?
