Mascot Monday – How-to: Squirrel Ornament (Free Pattern)


In preparation for the holidays, I’m doing a Mascot Monday, where I will post up an instructional PDF once a week on how to do a simple mascot ornament gift.  Last year for Christmas I made one for each of my friends and they were very well received, so this year I’m offering everyone these instructions so that everyone can enjoy them!

This week’s ornament: Squirrel

Sadly, I recently changed computers so I’ve lost almost all of the photos i had of the actual mascots once they were made, but hopefully you can imagine all the mascots from the few pictures that I do have :)


Supplies Needed (all the supplies can be used for multiple mascots):

  • 4 Pieces craft felt in different colors (I used cream for the markings, tan for the body, brown for the acorn and nose and black for the eyes)
  • 1 Tube crazy glue
  • 1 Spool of coordinating thred
  • 1 Package of stuffing

Step 1: Download & Print PDF Instruction Sheet

Step 2: Cut out the shapes of the paper pattern

Step 3: Use the paper shapes to cut out your shapes in felt.  I like to tape the shape onto the felt with scotch tape  so that it’s easier to cut.

Step 4: Follow the instructions on the guide:

  1. Glue ears (7a,b) to back of 8a.
  2. Sandwich ears with 8a,b. BS & stuff. Set aside.
  3. BS & stuff 5a,b.
  4. Attach 4a to front 5a,b (leg to front). Attach 4b to back (leg to back).
  5. Attach 10 to front of body above legs.
  6. Glue 9 to 11 and add 3 to top to create acorn. Affix to body where arm (10) is.
  7. Attach (stich or glue) tail to back of 5a,b.
  8. Sew body to head.
  9. Glue on facial elements (1a,b; 2; 6a,b,c)
