Turtle

This turtle is specifically designed to use in the oven! I have added liner, that way you won’t have any chance of hot stuff falling through the little holes. The only thing is that I for some reason used white thread when sewing the lining in, which doesn’t look too bad but I will make sure I use the same color of thread so it doesn’t look strange.

I made the turtle shell removable, and it can be used as a pot holder!

I debated on adding arms and legs, but since it’s designed as an oven mitt I didn’t want the legs going into a casserole or cookies.

I love the way it turned out!

Wanda and her hair

Wanda wanted to do something different with her hair, but was unsure what to do. She went to the stylist and decided that having multiple colors would help make her unique. So, the hair stylist put some pink, orange and purple in her hair.

When she looked in the mirror she couldn’t believe her eyes! She sure would be unique now!

This has to be one of the most entertaining puppets I have made, especially making it head bang and having hair fly all over the place.

What am I doing?

Have you ever had an inspiring moment for a cute project, then when you admire what you have done so far, you realize that #1 you didn’t write down what you did #2 there are certain parts that need to be done first or #3 you forget to measure to make sure it fits.

First off, I wanted to make a hand puppet where you move the hands of the puppet with your fingers. The idea is to be able to fit 2-3 fingers into the head portion and one finger in each of the arms, but I wanted it to look a little more like a person rather person wearing a sheet. I was attempting to make a neck and a round looking head… and well, I have had to take a little break from project because I have done all three of the above.

I didn’t write down what I was doing, so I would know what adjustments need done.

I started to make the head and was working on getting the area for the arms, only to realize that I didn’t even make arms yet.

I also didn’t measure and had already made adjustments to it because not even one finger could fit into the head part. I now can uncomfortably fit two of my fingers in the head.

If I continue to try to salvage what I have done so far, it might turn into a monstrosity

I think it’s back to the drawing board for this one.

Peter Pan Finger Puppets

My family is participating in the community play, Peter Pan, and my sister-in-law gave me the idea to make some little finger puppets that were related to the play.

I was uncertain if I wanted to do finger puppets, I was thinking that they may have not turned out well or they would take a long time to make. After playing around and trying a few things I really like the way these ones turned out. They did not take a lot of time to make and even though they are they did take some experimenting with some different designs I made, I think they are really cute!

So far I have created:

  • Captain Hook (I used an earring for his hook)
  • Smee
  • Peter Pan
  • Wendy (I switched her hair to be darker
  • Tinker Bell

I am sure there will be more coming soon!

**I do not claim these characters as my own however I created all of the pieces for each characters, of course they are not perfect and feedback is appreciated!

**I did also use safety eyes for these puppets so they can be a potential choking hazard for very little children.
