I made some felt finger puppets a few years ago for my nephew, and my cousin was interested in the pattern so she could make some for her darling little boy. I thought I would post the pattern here for anyone else who may be interested. (Print without changing the size.) I also made three of the frogs (with added spots) for Jack so we could sing the "Three Little Speckled Frogs" song. He loved it.
I didn't go into any detail about how to do the stitches. You can find specifics on embroidery stitches here.
This is a perfect project for Christmastime. You can watch one of your favorite Christmas movies AND make Christmas presents! Talk about efficient. :)
Speaking of favorite Christmas movies. Have you seen Christmas in Connecticut (1945)? Not very well-known, but I'd call it a must-see.
UPDATE: I have made a pattern for a giraffe finger puppet too. You can find it here.
