I'ma Teach Choo Howta Make A Supah Simple Hand Puppet!!
Step 1: Materials
Needle and Thread
Fabric-- skin color, cheek color, eye color, cloak color, and hair color (optional)
Hot glue gun
Step 2: The Head
Cut a large circle out of your skin color fabric. Gather the fabric on the edge of the circle and stuff the head with fiber fill.
Step 3: The Mouth
Draw the mouth on the face (opposite of where you gathered the fabric) and, coming from the back of the head, backstitch to embroider where the mouth is.
Step 4: The Cheeks
Cut two ovals out of your cheek fabric and glue them on either side of the mouth.
Step 5: Eyes
Cut two small circles out of your eye fabric and draw a smaller circle inside with a marker. Glue above but slightly overlapping the cheeks.
Step 6: Hair (optional)
Cut several pieces of yarn or fabric and glue then at the top of the head of your puppet.
Step 7: The Cloak
For my cloak, I cut off part of an old pant leg and glued one side of one end to the top of the head. Then, I glued the other side of the same end to the bottom of the head. (If it's easier for you, you can put a dab of glue between where your thumb will be and the bottom of the head).
Step 8: Ta-Da!
Your puppet needs a name now. Mine is named Edith (with a lisp). Your puppet is finished! Enjoy!
