Free Girly Fox Applique Pattern

square-cover.jpgSew my free girly fox applique pattern on your next tote bag, pillow, tee shirt, or quilt block! I used felt to applique this design on denim, but any fabrics will work.


This free applique design is a fox, but she is definitely a girl. She likes to hide in the grass and watch the silly boy fox jump over rocks and things. There is also a sweet and simple tree and a lovely matryoshka. I also have a mini version of this fox applique pattern too.

Find detailed instructions for sewing applique to anything in this post. I’ve included pictures of how I sewed this free girly fox applique pattern below.


I’ve sewn some recent applique designs into pillows and one into a wall hanging, so this one I decided to put on a tote bag. It’s just a basic tote bag but I’ll still post the tutorial one of these days in case you want to try it.


I used HeatnBond Lite to trace and fuse the design to my tote bag fabric in wool blend felt. Then I sewed it on with a simple straight stitch.


Then I hand embroidered the eyes and nose with a satin stitch.


The grass is just little strips of felt that I cut and sewed on one at a time.

    You’ve done it again. I love the new little fox and the matryoshka doll. My daughter’s married name is Fox and she is in love with all things Russian. You will be keeping me busy for some time.

    Oh dear, perhaps I’m having another Senior moment, but I have searched and cannot find the "download" button for the Fox pattern. I even went to Craftsy and still didn’t find the way to download them. I would appreciate a little guidance here! Thanks
