How cute is this felt ermine stuffie? Designed by Krista, she wanted to create a slightly smaller stuffie to fit in with all of our other woodland animals. Once you’ve made your stuffie, you can use it as part of your seasonal decor. Or you can always craft it as a Christmas gift.
Get started on your stuffie by checking out our supplies list below. Then download our pattern and tutorial at the end of the post.
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.

How to Make a Felt Ermine Stuffie
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download our felt ermine pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to template using scissors or a cutting machine with a rotary blade.
- Sew the legs to the underside piece using 2 strands of white embroidery floss and a whip stitch, working from what will be the inside of the legs.
- Repeat for all of the legs, ensuring that they are all facing the right way.

I love the new format too!!! Much easier to follow <3
Yes, great new tutorial format. Many thanks. And another wonderful stuffie!
So happy you like it!
Hope you revamp the tutuorials for all your stuffies to this format. So much easier to see and print off. Earlier attempts to print off the tutorials were frustrating because pictures were cut into two pages and all that jazz. Love all your stuffies
So glad you like the new format! Unfortunately we won’t be revamping our existing tutorials because it would take a ton of time for us to do that — we’d have to go back and re-make all of the projects, take new photos, make new PDFs, etc. Hopefully the separate written instructions help with some of the frustration!
Super cute, Krista! Love it!
Thanks! I shared your comment with Krista 🙂
