Trace Freddy Fox templates according to the color of the felt. Flip the template to trace the mirror side for the 2nd pieces whenever you see a “2” on the template.
Place the pieces together as shown.
Sew the small pieces with matching color sewing thread and sew with blanket stitch. Don’t sew the outer border yet at this point as you will sew them when attaching the back piece.
Insert and install the black brad pins to the eye markings. You may pierce the marking with an awl to make hole for the legs of the bard pin.
Place the tail parts with wrong side facing each other and sew around with blanket stitch.
Stuff the tail with polyfill stuffing just before you complete sewing the tail.
Pierce a hole on the tail and the back piece of the fox body where the markings are.
Place the tail to the body and align the hole, insert and install the legs of the bronze brad pin to fasten them together.
Place the front piece on the back piece with wrong side facing each other, sew around with blanket stitch. Leave an 1″ opening to the head of the fox.
Stuff the fox with polyfill stuffing.
Knot the ends of the cord together.
Continue to sew to close up the opening while placing the cord loop at the center.
Knot your thread upon finishing, hide your thread by inserting the needle back into the fox, pull to draw the knot into the stitch line.
Here is Freddy the Felt Fox saying “Hello” to all Craft Passion visitors and a big “THANK YOU” to whom who has tried out this free Felt Fox pattern and tutorial. Rotate the fox tail to other positions as you like.
The pattern comes with both small and large fox pattern, each has their own style and usage. For instant, the large fox is great to make as ornament or charm for tote, bag and purse, while the small fox is great a keychain charm. Together, they are great to hang on nursery mobile, pram and stroller.
You may also use the templates on scrapbooking, appliqué patchwork etc….
Besides felt, you may also sew Freddy Fox with leather and make it into luxurious fox leather charm. Below are 2 sizes of Freddy fox I sewed in leather. I have made a small limited quantity of them available in Craft Passion Shop.
