Hi everyone! Greetings of the Winter season! It’s time for another edition of Weekender with Wanda here on the SSS Blog. I’m back today to share a fun felt project with you! If you follow my personal blog, then you already know that I am pretty obsessed with making felties with the Exclusive Simon Says Stamp Plush Dies! I think I have made (at least) one of each one. They are a cheerful project to work on, and the finished cute animals bring a smile to whoever I give them too. I thought it would be neat to make Winter versions of some of the animals I’ve already made. So, today I introduce Winter Fox, Snow Bunny and Winter Owl! I used soft shades of grey and cream and then accented with pops of beautiful red felt.

You can use these finished felties as package tie ons, pins to wear, Christmas tree ornaments, decorations, and lots of other things! You can change the look to fit any theme. I hope you’ll try it!


The Winter Fox (Gentle Fox Plush Die) is a pretty grey fox with pink ears and cream accents. to make his scarf, I cut a strip of red felt and then cut into the edges to make fringe. I wrapped it around his neck and did a quick stitch to hold it in place.


I like to use Doodlebug Enamel Dots for the eyes on my felt animals. I like that they are shiny and you can choose from several sizes to fit the look you want.


Here is the little white snowy bunny (Plush Baby Bunny Die)! I used the bow tie from another die to give him a dapper red tie for Christmas! I also used a white pom pom for his tail. Use Felt Glue to attach the accents! So easy!



And the wee little Winter Owl (Plush Baby Owl Die)! He’s so cute! He is showing his love with a pretty red heart on his chest. To give the animals rosy pink cheeks, I used a brush and a bit of SSS Hollyhock Ink! I think that gives just a little extra touch of cute!

  1. My favorite Christmas craft is making a new Christmas stocking for my newest family member. It all started 35 years ago, when my twins were born. I found a Snoopy Christmas stocking kit, it was felt and I had to had sew the pieces together. I’ve kept up the tradition with each new spouse and grand child. This year I’m behind, 5 stockings. Things are happening fast in my family. I worked with my artist daughter to make new stocking to match personalities or interests of each kid or grand kid. I love this activity and everyone is excited to see what is stuffed in their stockings. It is a family treasure!! These dies will help me make stockings quicker!!

  2. These felt ornaments are so cute! I love making paper ornaments and snow globe for Christmas. I wish I could make this every year, but I didn’t get to do it this year.

  3. How adorable! My favorite Xmas craft is to create mini albums for friends and family. The dies would be a perfect addition. thank you!

  4. These are so cute and it makes me wish that I had kids, however, it would the grandkids now that would enjoy them.

  7. Adorable plush animals!! My favorite winter craft seems to be making holiday cards & things for my kids’ preschool classmates & teachers. There are so many fun products out there, it’s hard to just make one thing!

  8. Along with all the cards that come with the holiday season, I like making hats, scarves, blankets and all that during the colder months. The plush dies are so super cute! They’d get a lot of use in this house! :)

  9. My favorite holiday craft is making felt ornaments for the tree. Every year I make a new batch. Last year I made a Pomeranian one for my daughter’s new dog.

  10. We pick a craft each year and that is out theme. This year it is paper craft, all of our ornaments will be made from paper. Last year was wood, year before was found objects. maybe next year will be felt (smile)

  11. My favorite is any sewing, particularly by hand. These little felt animals are sweet and have piqued my interest!

  12. My husbands Mother made him a stocking when he was 2 years old (he is now 65) it is made out of felt all of the pieces were hand cut out, at the toe of the stocking is a choo choo train the runs along the bottom, above that is a tree, there is a snow man, a santa, a chimney with a candle, at the top are two bells, one bell has the year 19 and the other bell has the rest of the date of his birth all done in sequins. I created matching stockings for each of us, meaning me, all three of my children, then each of the wives and husband as they married, and each of the 8 grand children as they have been born. This has become quite a chore as I now have 6 Great Grandchildren too. This is one beautiful stocking and the name is across the top as well….
