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 made two smaller sized sheep. One with the “fluffy” look and the other plain. I really like the look of the fluffy one! Since it’s a larger stitch it does need to be adjusted so it’s not too big but I love the way it looks on the sheep! I may adjust the stitch so that it’s smaller, both the big and the little have the same size bobble stitch.

I’m not entirely sure if I like the look of this one yet. I think I am going to make major changes to it so that it looks more “cat like” I need to find a way to be able to make the whiskers look less like a mustache, I attempted to use thin wire and crochet around it but I do not know if I want to have to have wire in t even though it’s really thin and used for floral arrangements.
I may just use thinner yarn for the whiskers, I used the same size yarn for the puppet and the whiskers, that may look better. I also attempted to spray the whiskers so that they wouldn’t fall down as much, but it left it a little sticky .
Here’s one variation of a bunny puppet! The ears are smaller than on my tippy dog, but I didn’t want them too wide so they would be able to stand up. I also stuffed the ears a little bit so they wouldn’t lay so flat.
My family is involved in the community play that is going to be happening in a week and each night I bring my basket of puppets because I like getting opinions of others on what I can do differently and which ones they like. I expected to receive some feedback from the teenagers but did not expect them to be playing with them in between scenes.
I realized that my puppets so far have been farm animals (except for Mr. Frog but I’m sure frogs can technically be on the farm as well) To add to the farm here is a “Moo Cow”!
I personally love the black patch over the one eye, I am going to be trying other things to bring out the other eye without it looking too strange because having a white eye and using the same white yarn for the cow makes the other eye look a little odd.
I still have a list of puppets I want to make including other farm animals, so keep an eye out for more puppets!
I ran out of the pink yarn I was using to make this pig and I cannot find the same shade! I, fortunately, had just enough to finish it! This one was a ton of fun to make and I think I may make a set of 3 pigs and a wolf (oh a new puppet idea!) I still have a huge list of puppets I want to make, I have been making sure to write down the pattern so that I can make it again without worrying about how I managed to make it the first time.
This sheep was a ton of fun to make. I wanted to make it have a “fluffy” look to it, so I utilized the bobble stitch to make it look fluffy. Because of using this stitch I had to adjust it so that it would not be too big.
