Felted Finger Puppet Tutorial


When I was a little kid I had a cousin who used to go see some specialist for some problem she was born with. What it was I don't remember but one thing I do remember was at her doctor's visits she used to always get little finger puppets as gifts. Boy I sure was jealous! I remember she would collect them and had all different sorts ranging from animals to people. I wanted one so bad. The day came when I accompanied her to one of her visits and the doctor's office gave one to me too! Was I ever happy! I wish I new then what I know now....how easy it is to make one. The following technique requires NO SEWING!!!!! Yeah for NO SEWING! Can I say that again?! NO SEWING!!!! All you need is the following;

Fleece
Bowl filled with hot, soapy water (4 tablespoons of dye-free liquid dishwashing detergent to 6 cups of water)
Bowl filled with cool water
Felt
Scissors
Hot glue
finger puppet template (click on link)

You can find the simple instructions by clicking here. Enjoy!
