The AdvantEdge™ Punch System features slide-and-lock technology that makes punching perfectly aligned borders easier than ever.
* We recommend using felting wool for this project which is much thicker and more durable.
Making the Fox
1. To create the fox, begin by using the Shape Templates to trace two brown ovals, one white circle, and two brown circles from felting roll sheets. Cut shapes out using the Amplify® Mixed Media Shears.
2. From the brown felt circle, cut away two “leaf” shapes. The piece remaining will be the fox’s face and the point is his snout. The “leaves” will become the ears.
3. Lay the brown felt mask on top of the white felt circle and place them on a styrofoam block.
4. Take the ears and place on top of the fox’s head as pictured. Use your felting needle to join the layers, working only within the dotted line as illustrated. If you stray outside this line, his ears won’t stand upright.
4. Take your felting needle, and begin jabbing the needle into the felt layers in an up and down motion. Work your way around the fox's mask (white circle). The needle has a barb, and by moving it up and down, you will agitate the fibers and eventually they will cling together and the layers will merge. Watch your fingers! Felting needles are quite sharp, so pay close attention to what you’re doing!
5. Cut a tiny dark brown oval from a felt scrap to create the nose. Use your felting needle to attach it to the tip of his snout.
6. Cut the edge of the second brown circle off to create the tail. Cut a scrap of white for the tip, and felt these two layers together with your needle.
7. Felt the tail to one of the brown ovals.
8. Place the two brown ovals together, and work around the outer edge with your felting needle. Avoid the center of the ovals and leave the bottom end open.
9. Fold the fox’s face in half so the ears point upward and the nose points down. Place the fox’s body between the two layers of the folded circle, and pin all of the pieces to your styrofoam block. Felt the layers together where the fox’s face and body overlap, as indicated by the dotted lines in the photograph. You’re working many layers together, so give this area a lot of attention with your felting needle.
10. After the head and body are joined, put a small amount of stuffing into the body. Use your needle to work along the edges of the open end and seal the body closed.
11. Use a needle and thread to attach a small loop of rick-rack to the back of the fox’s head.
1. To create the owl, begin by cutting two ovals from the brown felt, one white circle, and one blue circle. Cut shapes out using the Amplify® Mixed Media Shears.
2. From the blue felt circle, cut away two “leaf” shapes, just like you did with the fox. The piece remaining will be the owl’s beak and ears. The “leaves” will become the wings.
3. Lay the remaining blue piece on top of the white felt circle and place them on a styrofoam block. Join your pieces together using a felting needle, working within the dotted lines indicated on the photo. It’s important that you only join the pieces at the beak and top of the circle, not the area in the center. If you felt in the center, the ears wont pop up when you assemble the owl.
4. Cut two small brown felt circles for eyes and felt them to the owl’s face.
5. Felt the two wings to the top layer of the owl’s body.
6. Place the two brown ovals together, and work around the outer edge with your felting needle. Avoid the center of the ovals and leave the bottom end open.
7. Fold the owl’s face in half fold so the beak points downward. Place the owl’s body between the two layers of the folded circle, and pin all of the pieces to your styrofoam block. Felt the layers together where the owl’s head and body overlap, as indicated by the dotted lines on photo below.
8. Fold the owl’s ears up. Attach a rick-rack loop to the back of the ornament using a needle and thread.
When you’ve completed a few owls and foxes, try experimenting with other shapes to see what animals you can create!
