These adorable felt finger puppets are simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using a whip stitch around the felt edges. Instructions are included to make a chick, bunny, ladybug, bumble bee, frog, owl, flamingo, cardinal, parrot and bluebird, along with a fabric carrying case (sample case is stitched by machine but it can be completed by hand). The puppets are made from scraps of felt, buttons and ribbons (a combination of acrylic and wool felt was used for samples). Felt circles or pompoms can be used in place of buttons. Finger puppets are not recommended for children under the age of three.
Two PDF e-patterns include full size patterns to make ten finger puppets, plus the measurements to make the carrying case (patterns are not included for carrying case); a materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photos.
Fun pattern, enjoyed the return to hand sewing.
Great for the Easter Basket!
