Picture of Anime Style Puppet Eyes
In this Instructable I am going to show you how I make my Puppet eyes. It has been over 6 years since I have actively made puppets, and have slowly started to come back into it. Back then I made a rough blog post on how I made them, and am revisiting the topic now in hopes to share my style to more puppet builders. These fit well with the "Project Puppet" patterns.

Step 1: Get the basics (drawings, materials, tools, etc)

First, you'll want a rough drawing of the style you will want. After that you'll need some:

Materials and tools:
  • Foamies Sheets (2mm thick) of various colors. Black and white are needed.
  • Felt Pieces for the eyelids
  • Misc. circular items to use as patterns (hole punch is a handy tool for the small white pieces)
  • Scissors, Xacto set, and a glue gun
  • (optional) "Hook and Loop" tape - for swappable eyes
