Move over owls, woodland animals have taken over as the it thing. Deer, foxes, raccoons and skunks are going to be everywhere in 2013. With that in mind, I am kicking off Felt Pattern Friday with a raccoon pattern.
Click HERE to download the free pattern.
How can you use this pattern? It is provided as a high resolution image file. This means that it can be resized to make anything from a tiny raccoon pin to large raccoon pillow. A PDF of the pattern is also available on Craftsy HERE (PDFs can't be resized though).
What can you make with this? I made one of mine into a decorative ornament by cutting out a second piece of felt for the back, and adding a string for hanging. It would also make a really cute needle book cover, or an appliqué quilt block.

You can find the pattern to make a whole family of Rascally Raccoon finger puppets over at Dream a Little Bigger.
If a tiny stuffed raccoon is more your style, check out Crafter user Oops Creations' pattern available here.
I do feel a bit bad for declaring owls passé at the beginning of this post. They are gorgeous graceful predators who care nothing for our puny human trends. So next week on Felt Fabric Friday, owls!
