Instructions with pictures to assist in sewing Freddy Fox
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 a blanket stitch. Don’t sew the outer border yet at this point as you will sew them when attaching the back piece.
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 the wrong side facing each other, sew around with a blanket stitch. Leave a 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 foxtail to other positions as you like.
The pattern comes with both small and large fox pattern, each has its own style and usage. For an instant, the large fox is great to make as an ornament or charm for tote, bag, and purse, while the small fox is great a keychain charm.
