These Woodland Animals Mini Embroidery Hoops For Kids turned out so cute, didn't they? They're incredibly easy to stitch together too! We even went ahead and  made the Deer, Fox, and Owl 4" Embroidery Patterns/Templates available as a free printable (head to the link at the bottom of this post to grab your free printable templates/patterns.)

Hi friends, how have you been? We're back with another fun project today! This is project #6 in our Kids Sewing Series, here at One Savvy Mom™. These small woodland  animals embroidery hoops only took my older daughter (11 yrs.) about 20-25 minutes each to stitch together. I helped her sketch out some patterns and shapes for the felt components, using a paper and pencil, first. Then, she cut them out and used them as a guide to cut her felt pieces. While we were sketching the shapes out, she proposed that I upload the patterns here as free printable templates, to make these little sewing projects a little easier for young children. So, that's what I did - I hope they help!

Read on for the simple supply lists to make these cute Woodland Animals Mini Hoops with the kids + grab your free printable deer, fox, and owl 4" embroidery hoop patterns/templates.
