Felt Fox Pattern – Freddy

Posted on Last updated: /

Who’s up for another sewing project on Craft Passion?! This cuteness-overloaded Fox Pattern is ready to make its way quietly into your home. Before that, take a little time to read up on this little playful introduction it has requested me to provide to you.

So here goes:

“I have triangular ears, a pointy snout, and a long bushy tail. I can be mistaken as a dog from a distance, but I have far more beautiful furs, eyes, nose, tail, and snout, as compared to dogs. Okay, not too much right? I am basically perfect.”

“Some may describe me as a sly, cheeky, annoying animal, but I am also extremely cute, charming, and clever. I absolutely looove to socialize! You have no idea how much I enjoy being with friends, and especially my family. We usually move around in a ‘pack’ too as we do not enjoy being alone. Aren’t I a little bit of everything? I am sure you will learn to love me too!”

Phew, what a narcissistic self-introduction, don’t you think?

Hi, I Am Freddy Fox, Nice To Meet You.

I am pleased to introduce to you, Freddy, the orange felt fox! He traveled all the way from the woods and is so thrilled to meet all of you!

Freddy fox pattern is not only meant to be a felt pattern project, but it can also be sewn into a leather fox charm, stitched as a fabric fox appliqué patchwork, or made for fox scrapbooking. Since it is a simple fox sewing pattern, it is perfect to get your children started on kid’s crafts as well.

Grown children, or adults, can also enjoy this fox craft by adding on a bit of difficulty. Simply use the template and enlarge the fox pattern to make a fox pillow or a fox soft toy.

The Freddy felt fox pattern comes in 2 sizes; a small size of 2.25″ x 2.25″, and a large size of 3.5″ x 3.5″ (please feel free to enlarge it to meet your requirement). These two sizes are convenient for you to decide what you want to do with them, and where you would like to hang them. For example, you may hang them on a nursery mobile, a pram, a stroller, or you can treat it as a keychain for your bag, car keys, house keys, etc.

Posh It With Genuine Leather

Remember how I said it could be sewn with different materials? If you use felt material, you can hang it on cloth bags or canvas bags for a more casual outlook. On the other hand, if you want to bring life to your posh leather bag, you may use leather material to create the fox pattern as well.

Have Fun With The Fox Pattern!

Another little detail I added to the Freddy felt fox tutorial is that I have made the tail rotatable by using brad pin fastening, which makes the fox a lot cuter than it already is! Do proceed to download the fox template for free at the instruction section below. Just click on the link next to the words, “download template” down below.

Foxes are always in a pack and they love to socialize. So, make as many as you wish for yourself, your family and friends so they are not alone! It will be a great handmade gift for your loved ones.

Freddy is very cute - thanks for sharing him! I've just finished up a bunch of hand and finger puppets for Christmas gifts for some young relatives (and young neighbours :D) - I'm still in felt mode, and I think Freddy would be a cute extra to tuck in some Christmas cards :)
