felt finger puppets

12:28:00 AM

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.

    I linked back here in a post I did on a round-up of cute finger puppet patterns and I plan to make a whole set for my daughter who loves finger puppets right now!


  2. I've just discovered how much fun it is to make finger puppets - I made some turkeys for some of my g-nephews for our (Canadian) Thanksgiving - I'm already addicted to this fun and new-to-me craft. So finding your adorable puppets and free tutorials have made my day - thank you for sharing these! I need to get more felt in more colours, for more puppets - good thing I have lots of small rellies and small neighbours!

  3. Finger puppet is a perfect selection of toy for your kids and perfect for Christmas time.
