For little hands- Sheep

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.

Cat

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 .

Bunny

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.

Moo Cow

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!

Chicken

Thank goodness for already having this post ready to go! I am feeling under the weather today so I am going to rest today.

One of our chickens, we received her from my husband’s grandparents. She and the others we received, fit right into our flock!

My daughter was out of school for half of the week due to being sick and she is obsessed with chickens, so of course, I had to make a puppet for her!

We have chickens in our backyard and the kids love taking care of them. We get so many eggs in the summer time that we give a lot to our neighbors.

I want to adjust this one slightly because it is a little smaller where you put your fingers (is perfect for her hands so I will make two sizes) and I’m not sure if I like the look of the beak.

Unsure if I like the beak, will adjust it for the next one I make

Piggy

img_0527Oink!

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.img_0526
