For A Foxy Cup of Coffee
We are all pretty big coffee and tea drinkers in the studio, and because we love to add a touch of DIY to anything that we do, we created this adorable DIY cup cozy in collaboration with our friends at Good Housekeeping. We are always drawn to fox and woodland designs, and we love the idea of this cutie curling up with us as we sip our hot beverages. Plus the project is extremely easy for adults and kids alike! You will only need a few materials, and you can whip up this foxy design in a matter of minutes.
Tools & Materials
- Craft Scissors
- Tacky Glue or a Low Temperature Hot Glue Gun
- Wool/Wool Blend Felt
- Paper Coffee Cup
- Gather tools and materials listed above.
- Print the PDF template below and cut your felt pieces according to the pattern.
- Glue white felt pieces (tail tip, inner ears, face) onto the orange fox body.
- Glue on the black nose and eyes.

You can find standard felt at your local craft store, or some of our favorite online felt sources are Benzie Design, Felt on the Fly and A Child’s Dream Come True. You can choose which ever colors you’d like for your coffee cozy, but we especially love using a heather orange for the fox body. Once you gather your materials, cut out the template according to the pattern. If you need some help steadying the template against the felt as you cut, you can secure the paper to the felt with sewing pins. After you cut out your felt, you can use quick dry tacky glue if you are crafting with little ones, or you can use your hot glue gun to attach the felt pieces. Check out the project on Good Housekeeping’s website for more!

Hi Lia, I work at a public library near Charleston, SC, and the staff here fell in love with your fox cozy! Because of COVID we are not able to have in-house crafts at this time, but we have take & make craft projects for our patrons to take home. We print instructions and give them supplies (for instance, origami instructions and paper to make an origami crane) and we would really like to give out your fox template along with felt for our patrons (with proper credit to you, of course). We were thinking of printing out 12-16. Is that something you would be comfortable with? Keep up the creativity! Thank you, Katherine Taylor, Circulation Generalist at the Edgar Allen Poe Library in Sullivans Island, SC.
Hi Katherine, can you send an email with this request to email@example.com? Thanks!
Is there an sag cut file available for this? I was planning on using this template to create napkin rings for a fox themed baby shower.
We will add an SVG for this project, please check back soon! 🙂
Will these wash okay? Just curious…they look adorable!
We would recommend hand washing with cold water and laying flat to dry 🙂
Hi there! What size coffee cup did you use for this project? How many ounces? Can’t wait to try this one out! Thanks in advance for your reply:-)
Hi! We used a 16 ounce cup but it should work with a 12 oz cup as well.
Delayed response on my part! Thanks so much for the information! It’s much appreciated.
