Weekender with Wanda – Winter Plush Animals!

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!

  3. Each year I create a twig tree(from branches in my yard) and decorate it with little snowmen ornaments. Since it’s a snowman tree, it stays up thru the winter. My grandsons love it and so do I! A little plush snowman would look fantastic on it! :) I especially love the little owl and he could drop by for a visit!

    These would make great package tie-ones.

  11. My favourite project for Xmas this year has been a little grey board winter house painted white with white flower soft for snow and white glitter for ice. I made the windows look like stained glass with some coloured acetate. There are bottle brushes in the yard too with glitter and flower soft all over them.

    1. My favorite Winter Holiday crafting project has becoming making my Christmas cards. I used to just make photo cards, but now I make my own cards and put the photo inside, best of both worlds.

  16. Oh my goodness the little owl cracks me up! I haven’t attempted these adorable felt projects. My favorite winter project extends all year round and it is card making. Thank you for sharing your sweet Felties!
