Felt finger puppets

Remember when I said in the last post about the felt groundhog finger puppet that you could easily adept it and make all kinds of animals ... ? Well, I did not really plan on doing this but my daughter got a very last-minute-kinda invitation to a birthday party. The party was today - and we got told on Thursday. We gave the little girl a ticket to a puppet theatre show. (Which I will go to tomorrow with the two little ladies. I am REALLY looking forward to this. I LOVE puppet theatre!)
But I thought we should give a little something that would go with it ... Since there was no way I could whip up or buy a handpuppet - which was my first idea - I spend Friday stitching a few finger puppets to play with. I actually really love how they turned out.


Big bad wolf and three little piglets. And a few close ups ...


It's hard to see them in the photo - but I love the piggy's tails!

That wolf was really hard to make. I actually had to do it twice. I liked the first one I made - just noone recognized it as a wolf! :-(




Well, and these two birds came also flying along ...




When I cut them out I got a bit carried away ... So look out for more felt finger puppets popping up on this blog in the next couple days ...

If you want to see the card I made to go along with the finger puppets look at this post.

And the other felt finger puppets I made can be found in this post.

Sweet!
Maybe you can come over and teach me how to do some for Maya...
Oh, and did I tell you my mother lives in Germany? Duisburg, actually...
Maybe next year I'll visit her and we can meet up and you'll teach me about crafts and stuff...(and no, I am not kidding).

Thanks both of you for the nice comments! I feel completely flattered!

@Ramona
Did I tell you that my mother actually is originally from Romania? She is German though - I don't know the correct word in English.
You would be the first blogger I actually meet! :-) Buisburg is quite a bit away though!

If you want to I can write a post about how to make the finger puppets ... would that help? It's really easy though that's why I did not even bother to make a tutorial ... I figured people would think I am really weird making one for such easy things ... I could also post the pattern I used ...
Would that help?
