I am back from my trip to London and have all kinds of great projects to get up before Christmas! The next felt ornament is this adorable little felt bear wearing his red scarf. This little bear is so easy to make. I used gorgeous wool felt blend from Benzie Design. Of course you can mix and match your colors to make the perfect personalized felt bear, but I have listed my colors below. If you’re a member, you can download the PDF printable pattern and step-by-step instructions at the bottom of the post. If you make this bear, you may also want to include his little friends: deer, fox, raccoon, squirrel, bunny, and mushroom & acorns. Enjoy! ~ Lia

Hi! I am shiny new and so excited! I thought I downloaded the .SVG file for this but it is just an HTML copy, I tried a couple of files and same thing, What am I doing wrong?
You can see how to download the SVG and save it right here in this video. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/how-to-use-files-cricut/
We have a lot of great resources for you in our Craft Academy. Check them out! https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/
I am in love with these cute ornaments… but…is there a way you can do an svg out of the bear, racoon and mushroom? I would like to cut them bigger with my maker. 🙂
They’ve all been added!
OMG these are stinking cute!!! I’ll definitely add these cute little animals to my Christmas gifts… thank you for the template you are so generous.. advance merry Christmas and god bless you..
Oh you’re so welcome, thank you for your comment!!
hello can I ask something ?
this wood on which you made a photo of your amazing felt ornaments , is it real ? Or maybe you used some photo backgraound ?
Hi! I photographed the tutorial on the Emmerson Dining Table from West Elm 🙂
Would you mind if I make a few and sell them? 🙂 They are so cute, you’re very talented!
Thank you, I am glad you like them!! I have a copyright over my designs, and they are for personal use only, so you will not be able to sell any of my designs
I made the bear, fox & raccoon for our Christmas ornament exchange and they were big hits! Thank you for the beautiful patterns! For the person who was asking about the beads, I got a multi-pack of black beads from Michaels for ~$4 and tested out different-sized beads until I found the ones that looked right.
Wonderful!! I hope you had a lovely Christmas!
Thanks for sharing! I’m having a hard time finding black beads, do you have any suggestions or could you tell me where the ones you used came from? Thank you!
We just picked ours up from Michaels 🙂
YOUR FELT SOFTIES ARE ADORABLE! ABOVE IT STATES ONE FREEBIE….I AM NOT A MEMBER SO I WOULD HAVE TO PAY 5.00 PER MO. ONE OF YOUR OTHER SITES STATED “FREE” PATTERNS. DID I MIS-READ THE WHOLE THING? YOUR WORK LOOKS WONDERFUL AND VERY QUALITY!
Hi Willa. Does it say that in comments or in the text? We only have one site so if that was stated it was from someone else. Our membership includes all of our patterns, printables and cutting machine files for $5 a month or we can sell to you on Etsy for $5 each. We think this is a great deal. 😉
I believe this was free at one time before your site became a subscription service. It is too bad there is no longer no access to the previously free designs.
Yes, my templates did used to be free for all. A few months ago we had to switch to a membership program in order to continue crafting at a larger capacity. You can read about it here: https://liagriffith.com/confessions-of-a-blogger-part-2/
Thank you for the pattern! This is way too adorable! I’ll be making one for my penpal for Christmas 🙂 Thank you so so much!!
That is so cute, I need a penpal!! How long have you guys been exchanging letters?
thank you do much for sharing your patterns. I’m making quiet books for my grand twins birthday and his is about camping!
leuke dingen om te maken.
Thank you. These are so cute. I’m going to try to make them with the kids tonight.
Curious to know if you use the Cricut machine to cut the felt figures?
There are all cut by hand. I am waiting for Cricut to optimize their felt cutting before I share it on the blog. 😉
Thank You so much!
Can’t wait to make these with my son?
Hope you both have a blast!!
I am so loving these cute wee guys, thanks for sharing them with us Lia!

I just love these! Thanks so much for sharing.
I’m new to your blog and apologize if you have addressed this before, but I want to buy a cutting machine and am so confused about what to buy. Can you advise?
It is one of my favorite questions:) Here is a post about it https://liagriffith.com/why-i-gave-away-my-silhouette-and-replaced-it-with-cricut-explore/ I wrote that post a couple of months ago and now have another 20 reasons to add why I love it so much. We use it everyday in my studio. There is a link on my site for Cricut, think they are still on sale https://liagriffith.com/cricut-explore-super-sale/
I’m new on your website, discover you by Pinterst i love your website and all your créations! Thank you
Happy you found me:)
these would also make fantastic stocking stuffers and pocket pals for kids, maybe even keyring ornaments, do you have patterns for the others
Such a great idea!!! The patterns will be posted through out the week.
