Check out the full collection, as it builds, on our 30 Days of Gift Ideas page, and get ready to be inspired. This week’s theme: Last-minute gifts There’s still time to make a gift from the heart this season, and you don’t have to be a professional seamstress pull it off. All you need are a few basic craft supplies, a quiet afternoon by the fire, and this easy-to-follow printable pattern from Delilah Iris to guide you.
An approachable introduction to hand-stitching (and to reinforcing shapes with simple pipe-cleaner armatures), this 3- to 5-hour project yields an enchanting little felt fox that fits equally well in the hands of a child, on the branch of a Christmas tree, or as part of a rustic woodland decor scheme. The best part? Once your loved ones realize the handiwork is yours, they’ll cherish it all the more. Printable PDF stuffed fox pattern from Delilah Iris, $6.
