For those of you who follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know I am in London this week debuting my new paper craft kits. Very exciting! Trips like this always throw off my blog schedule, so my plan to start my series of felt animals has been delayed for a few day. Let’s get started with this felt fox ornament.
How cute is this? Using the template, this little felt fox ornament is quite simple to assemble. Once all the felt pieces are cut, you can use a hot glue or craft glue to attach the small pieces of detail. Blanket stitch the outer edge of the fox, add a little stuffing and you are done with this adorable buddy. He is ready to add to the top of a holiday gift or hang on the Christmas tree.
Crafting Tip: New to crafting felt animal stuffies and want to learn more? Take our mini course, 8 Easy Steps to Create Any Felt Stuffie.
NOTE: If I were to make a second fox, I would assemble the tail separate from the body and attach on back of fox body after both pieces are complete. Be sure to check out my other DIY Felt Christmas ornaments: deer, bear, raccoon, squirrel, bunny, and mushroom & acorns. Enjoy! ~ Lia

…i just paid for a membership to get this pattern…and there are no directions..
Hi Melanie, the directions are in the step-by-step photo tutorial.
Beautiful stuffies! Thank you for sharing! What size buttons do you use for the eyes?
We used 3mm black beads for the eyes 🙂
Will this be available as an SVG file for cutting machines?
Just uploaded the SVG file 🙂

Lia, when you mention that if you made the fox again you would do the tail separately, do you mean like you made the squirrel?Thanks!
Yes, exactly! I would close the body all the way and attach the tail separately.
Excellent, thank you!
I would like to purchase a pattern without joining. Is that possible?

[…] Animal Felt Ornaments from Lia Griffith […]
I see must have missed some posts after my surgery. And on top of that am so embarrassed to have asked you about a squirrel when you’d already done it, so sorry. Where was my brain for while?
Aha, see below this is squirrel so can get right to it. Sorry for being such an absent minded old lady. Sure appreciate how you’ve shared all these felt critter projects. Am so behind, need to have time to catch up on so many of your wonderful projects. If I saw the squirrel previously sure forgot about it. No excuse cause I wasn’t taking any pain drugs.
Will get started on grand daughters squirrel right away. Hope I have right color felt now. Hubs has to make a pulley contraption for me so I can get arm stretched out. My time for pt is running out and have to see surgeon on 23rd.
How exciting about your paper craft kits. When will we see them? Hope all went well in London. How exciting. Happy week
We have plans for many more stuffies coming up 🙂 We’re hoping to do a whole “under the sea” theme! I’m hoping to make some big announcements in the next few months so you will find out then about the paper and kits 😉
Darling patterns. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you 🙂
Thank you for sharing such a sweet ornament pattern!!
You are very welcome!
[…] Ornaments Now we can’t complete this list without a Fox Ornaments for the tree! Without further ado, here it is. Lia Griffith shows us how to makes these ornaments, […]
Hello! Thanks so much for sharing! Would it be possible for these felt animal ornaments to be in SVG file formats so that I can cut them with my Cricut Explore please?
We cut our felt by hand! Cutting with felt on the Cricut requires you to back your felt with a stiffener, which will not work for our projects.
[…] process goes way back. In the past I have made and shared tutorials for cute flower gift toppers, felt animal gift toppers, I have shared all kinds of printable wrapping paper, including spring floral Mother’s […]
Thanks for replying. I will abide by your request. I know it’s not fair to have your designs used without compensation. Our bazaar is in Woodstock, IL.
That might be too long of a drive for me:) Hope it is a success!
Your little fox ornament is so very cute. Would it be possible to get permission to make several of these to sell at our local church bazaar in Nov. 2015? ALL proceeds go to local service organizations fighting domestic abuse, homelessness, and direct assistance. Please contact me if you would like more information. Thank you.
Hi Gail thank you for your questions. Although all of those causes are close to my heart all of my designs are copyright for personal use only:( It is standard to protect starving artists from having our designs used by large corporations without paying royalty and unfortunately the same rules apply. Best of luck with the Church bazaar, if it is close by I would love to stop by.
a great idea !!! Very pretty !!!
Can you recommend a felt to use? Wool or acrylic, which is best for stitching and using on these projects? Thank you, happy new year
Wool is by far the better for felt!!!!!

Danke für die tolle Datei!
You are welcome!
I cannot figure out how to get the patterns. Can you help? These are so cute – I just found you on pinterest.
There is a button at the end of the post that will download the pattern for you. 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing your patterns. I usually have to draw out what I see myself…not so good at that part. I love the fox! My daughter likes foxes because her Papillion looks like a fox. So excited to make this for her. Merry Christmas!
Wonderful! Enjoy this little craft. 😉
I love this little guy. Too too too cute. Thank you again for sharing him with us at Found & Foraged!! So nice to find your blog! xo, Laura
This is just too cute! We will be featuring this on Found & Foraged tonight! Thank you so much for linking up.
Thank you so much!!
Thanks, love your ideas and your site.
So interesting and fun!!
Lia, Thank you so much for sharing your patterns, I know my family and friends will love the fox!
You are welcome, enjoy:)
i have been following your blog for several months now, finding everything you share stunningly beautifull and special…
until now i just looked, did not do anything myself. yesterday i decided the little fox to be the first thing to actually craft myself and… it was SO much fun!
It came out perfect, looks beautifull and my 2 years old little boy LOVES it (… he is very much into foxes at the moment….)
thank you so much for this lovely inspiration!
i´ll do the bear tonight, already looking forward to it…
Your little animals will be the highlight on my christmas tree!
a warm hello and thank you from cold Berlin, Germany
So glad you finally tried, I try to make it as easy as possible and often it is easier than it looks. Happy to hear that your 2-year old son loves it, he has got good taste:)
Thank you for sharing – I could not resist making this adorable fox and now he’s hanging on my Christmas tree 🙂
Love it:) Soon I will be posting the pattern for his friends;-)
When purchasing felt for the animals is it safe to purchase one of the wool blend felt collections?
sure, you can make the animals in any color group you want:) I not sure what is included in their collections but I got all my fabric from Benzi Design.
I am SO making these! I will put a little plaid scarf on mine!
Yes! Plaid would be so cute.
So cute! Found them on flip board. I’m pinning too, hope to actually make one.
Wonderful! Check out our other little animals in this set too. 😉
They are all so cute…just love them.
Thank you, have to say I love them too.
Oh my gosh – totally adorable! Thank you 🙂
You are welcome:)
I love this! So adorable. I just pinned it.
I would be so honored if you would share it tonight at the Found & Foraged Linky Party. It starts at 8PM CST at http://www.thebigrevealblog.com if you are interested. Hope to see you there!
Thank you so much! I am honored to be included:)
Made the squirrel and am on my way to the fox – cant wait til the rest come along – they are within my reach which makes them even more rewarding. Thanks so much!
I Have noticed that now the printable PDFs open in a new tab unlike earlier. It’s a small thing but made the browsing easier for me . 🙂
I think it depends on the browser. I like the new tab too. 🙂
[…] Make a Felt Fox Ornament or Gift Topper – 1 freebie(s)? […]
Hooray! I love making felt animals and the fox in particular. Lia, I especially adore your fox graphics and to have a pattern to make one into a felt “sweetie” makes my heart pound faster. The cool thing is just last night I ordered a pack of felt from Benzie Design! As soon as it shows up I’ll be in making mode. You are so kind in sharing this and I thank you.
Yay, perfect timing! Lots more of felt projects coming this and next week. Stay tuned:)
These are adorable! I love everything you do! Best wishes on your debut!
Thank you! I am having a blast!
How cute is this??? You are so generous with all that you share with us. Thank you, so much, just sometimes doesn’t seem big enough.
You are a darling!!!!!!!
Этот лисенок очаровательный и очень замечательный! Лия, спасибо!
I’m so in love!!! Thank you so much for sharing this supercute fox!
Plenty more to come:)
This is so cute I can’t wait to make one. The others are just adorable too.
I call them my little sweethearts:)
Oh my gosh, how adorable is he! Thanks so much Lia and can’t wait for the rest of your woodland critters, they are too cute!
I am in love with woodland critters:) Can you tell…..
I just fell in love. He is so cute! I can’t wait to start on him. And for the others coming. Love them all. Way to go Lia!
You just put a huge smile on my face!;-)
Oh my, he is adorable! I wish there was more time to make one for every gift under my tree!
I know what you mean:) I wish I had at least 30 hours in a day:)
