These adorable felt finger puppets are simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using the whip stitch around the felt edges, the stem stitch for the zebra stripes, the straight stitch for the monkey and tiger muzzles, and French knots for the eyes (a diagram is included for the French Knot and stem stitch). Instructions are included to make a monkey, tiger, elephant, giraffe and zebra, along with a fabric carrying case (sample case is stitched by machine but it can be completed by hand). The finished puppets are approximately 3” x 3” (this measurement includes the ribbons – the elephant and giraffe are a little larger). 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.
This eight page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make the jungle animals, plus the rectangle measurements to make the carrying case (patterns are not included for carrying case); a materials list; detailed instructions for puppets and carrying case written in English; and clear step-by-step photos.
