The Frozen Fox

Meet The Frozen Fox. My boys love band aids, what kid doesn’t? I’ve seen these little mommy-made ice packs around blogland and thought it would be a great little surprise. Now, when someone gets hit (by their brother) they have a little something to take their mind off of it.

All you need is the Frozen Fox Template, fabric, felt and a button. Click on this picture to enlarge,save and then print it off.

Cut everything out.

Place everything on the front of the fox face. Pin it and sew.

For the ears: pin the inner white part on top of the larger fabric ear and sew. Then get the other large fabric ear and put right sides together. Sew around the two longest sides leaving the bottom open and flip.

Sew a button to the face right where the white cheeks meet.

With the white sides of the ears facing down, place the ears on the face lining up the edges.

Then place the other side of the face right side down on top of the fox. Pin all the way around and leave the bottom open. IMG_6708

Sew around the fox. On the bottom, leave a 2″-3″ opening. Clip the corners and flip right side out.

Pour rice in to the opening at the bottom. I tried both beans and rice… I like the rice better but the beans are a little heavier, and both will work. (husband’s man hands not mine haha)

Hand sew the bottom up to close the fox :)

    What a lovely fox !!!! and thanks for the DIY.
    I think…I’m going to try.
    Excuse me, I’m French and I don’t speak your language very well. I hope you understand me.

    Oh this is just so adorable, and so timely, for me! I don’t have kids, but I’m going to make a couple of these in a larger size for ME! lol I have severe Fibro and sometimes an ice pack really helps out, painwise. Wonder if you could put those DIY Ice packs (ziplocks filled 3/4 way with dish soap, multibagged… they freeze and can be reused indefinitely) inside,, Make the fox a little pocket that slides over it. Hum. You just gave me a weekend project that’ll definitely make me feel better. And lemme tell ya, I’d much rather reach for one of these darling woodland critters than the ugly white plastic ones from Walgreens. Thanks so much for the project!
