DIY Fox Scarf with Free Pattern

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.




I saw this in a crafting magazine we sell in the shop I work. I can’t wait to make it, I love foxes soooo much and this will be super cute in the spring and summer during the evenings. 🙂

This is so sweet,I couldn’t resist and had to make one for my granddaughter. Thank you so much for sharing.


Thank you for this fantastic tutorial! I made “Foxy Loxy” for a little boy whose middle name is Fox. I was very pleased with how he turned out but he is going to be hard to part with! My little girl has put in an order for a fox and Raccoon!!!


Hi there.

Your scarf is absolutely amazing! But now I have the problem, that I can´t find both of the fabrics. Where do you bought them? Or maybe you have a link for me? And how/ with which catchwords do I find the white fabric? 😀 Thanks for the pattern (from Germany ;))


I couldnt find the fabrics either. I’m in England. Americans have it easy when it comes to finding great fabrics 🙂 I really wanted to make this scarf though and after a bit of hunting I was lucky enough to find an orange tartan scarf in the ‘Next’ sale but they prob dont have it now. I used just a cream coloured fleece fabric for the underside though. I do love my foxy scarf though, and it gets quite a few compliments 🙂 Xxx

3 topla šala za sve hladnije dane | Hypo Teens Klub

[…] Prije 20-ak i više godina lisica oko vrata bila je musthave svake zimske odjevne kombinacije, no širenjem svijesti o zaštiti životinja koje su ni krive ni dužne završavale kao modni dodaci stilski osvještenih dama, ta je praksa, na sreću, izašla iz mode. No, vi se možete poigrati svojim vještinama i materijalima te si sašiti topli šal koji s unutarnje strane ima meko umjetno krzno, a s druge karirani uzorak narančaste boje. Rep, šapice i uši od istog materijala, oči od dugmadi i njuškica od crne vune otkrit će pravo lice ovog super cool šala. Detalje izrade istražite na stranici Prudent Baby. […]


Where did you get the orange tartan? I love orange but can’t find anything similar. Is it called something specific? Any info would be great, otherwise mine will be an arctic fox.


this is going to be a homemade Christmas by need. WOW this makes it a little
more exciting. so cute. grand daughters will love this one. more fun than jammies. Marcia, of Mississippi


Loved this pattern the minute I first saw it. I made 16 scarves. One for each of my sisters and nieces and a few extras for Christmas presents. Didn’t think that the guys would want one but was wrong, now I have to make more. Everyone loved, loved them!

And then we had the great Armstrong brothers, Vic and Andy, to choreograph the
crusade sequence, so we really were blessed. In the event you want to
honor your ancestral heritage or culture, there are many options to choose


What is the seam allowance you use for this pattern? I added a 1/2 like a person did above but I haven’t sewn my fox yet. I was curious if you added one on top of the pattern or it was included, if included what was it? Thanks! I can’t wait to see how these turn out, thanks for sharing your pattern.


The pattern includes a 1/2 inch seam allowance, but it’s also not a problem if you have already added a 1/2 inch to the pattern. This pattern is pretty customizable and will still turn out adorable! Don’t forget to send us a photo.
