I’d like to introduce to my little friend here, Frédéric. He took one foggy afternoon to whip up and has been lazily resting on my shoulders ever since. He is made from the finest of flannels and the coziest minky, and boy is he toasty. Want to make a Frédéric of your own?

The best thing about this pattern is that you can make a variety of different animal scarves with it: raccoon, wolf, or skunk perhaps? Round out the snout and ears to make it a bear or panda. The scarf length is also easily customizable to be longer or shorter.

DIY Fox Scarf with Free Pattern

Begin by downloading the Fox Scarf Pattern.

You can make the fox scarf body as long as you want, just use the pattern to shape the head and tail. Mine turned out to be 3 feet long from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. Cut out one body piece of the top fabric (flannel) and one body piece of the bottom fabric (minky). You can use any fabric you prefer.

Sew just the face together on the inside and flip right-side out. This helps with placing the nose and eyes. Hand stitch two black buttons for the eyes.

Cut out the ears, sew and turn right-side out.

Place them where the pattern ear line is and zig-zag stitch them down to the flannel fabric only.

Here they are popped up.

Use Black Embroidery Floss to hand stitch the nose only through the top flannel fabric.

Give him little whiskers too by threading embroidery thread through and knotting the end to keep it in place.

Cut out your arm and leg pattern pieces and sew them together, flip right-side-out.

Place the arms in the same place that the ear markings are at, but on the minky fabric. Pin down.

Just as you did with the ears, zig-zag stitch the arms down just to the minky.

Do the same for the legs.

Pin the arms and legs to each other. This is so they don’t get caught when you’re sewing the body pieces together.

Flip the fox inside out and sew around. Leave a small gap in the middle of the scarf open so you have somewhere to flip it through.

Once you’ve flipped the fox right-side-out, machine stitch the gap closed.

Voila! Your fox scarf is complete.
