It’s the DIY Fox Scarf with Free Pattern that you’ve been looking for!
Who wouldn’t want to snuggle up with their very own homemade fox scarf? It’s like a glamorous old timey stole, but with less dead fox! Let us show you how to make a fox scarf (and give you a free downloadable pattern too).
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 fox scarf 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 from google docs. It is free, but you will need a google account to download it. Ok, now that you have your fox scarf pattern, let’s get started…
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 but here are some options for flannel and minky.
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.
Use Black Embroidery Floss to hand stitch the nose only through the top flannel fabric.
Now that you’ve sewn yourself a snazzy fox scarf, perhaps you’re ready for some other sewing projects? Here are some of our favorites for grown-ups…
