handmade felt ermine stuffie

Stoatally Awesome

We typically like to make winter animals during the winter season. (Remember our felt reindeer from last December?) This felt ermine stuffie is specifically a winter ermine because their fur coats change from brown to white in the winter months. Plus they also like to sport tiny scarves!

For an easy winter scene, you can place your felt ermine on your mantel with some fluffy fake snow (stuffie puff works great for this!) and some mini felt trees. Or you can always make some paper trees instead.

Skill level: Intermediate
