I had a lot of fun stitching up these felt Christmas Critters for my grands. They're all snuggled in a basket, but pretty soon they'll be hopping into the Christmas trees of wee children.
My inspiration came from Cassie at You Go Girl. There is one free pattern for a squirrel, and if you look a little at the link, I think you'll come across an owl pattern too. The other animals I made using the squirrel pattern as a base and free-handed the rest. Choosing felt colors was fun and so was the embroidery.
