If you couldn’t tell, we love foxes! We have made a few different felt foxes over the years, but this felt red fox is our first standing version. And it fits in perfectly with all of the other woodland animal stuffies that Krista has designed.
Due to its construction, this is a great intermediate felt project. So if you’re looking for more of a beginner project, you may want to try this felt fox stuffie instead.
Think outside the fox
We love helping you get creative! Our felt red fox would make a great handmade gift for kids — or anyone who loves foxes. If you are making this at home with little ones around, they can join in on the fun by crafting our pom-pom fox pals, this simple felt fox cup cozy, or a felt pinecone fox.
Crafting tip: For a more wintery version of this felt red fox, you could use white or gray felt instead to make an arctic fox.

How to Make a Felt Red Fox
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the fox pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to pattern using a Cricut Maker (optional) or scissors.
- Sew the legs to the underside piece using two strands of white embroidery floss and a whip stitch, working from what will be the inside of the legs. Match and follow the curve of the leg openings, and ensure that the legs are facing the right way.
- Repeat this step for all of the legs.
