This is my first instructable so, sorry if i get something wrong!

This is a easy to make Emu Puppet that takes about 4 days to make, i made it from brown wool but you can make it any crazy colour
you want it to be! I haven't given any sizes because if you follow the steps you can make it as big as you want.

Step 1: Step 1 : You'll Need

Picture of Step 1 : You'll Need
For this crazy emu You will need:
  • Wool
  • Fishing line
  • Felt
  • 2 sew on eyes or buttons
  • Some Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • A Sewing Needle
  • Some wood
  • Toy stuffing

Step 2: Step 2: The Head

Picture of Step 2: The Head
To make the head cut two rings the same size out of cardboard, make them about the size you want his head to be, but make it a bit bigger than you will need because you can all ways make it smaller later.
Put the two rings together and start wrapping wool around the rings by going in the inside ring and then around the edge and back through the middle ring over and over again, unless its a really big head you will need to cut some wool off then start wrapping it around because all of the wool wont fit through the inside ring.
Do this a few times so that its 1 or 2cms thick all around.

Step 3: Step 3: Finshing the head

Push some of the wool away so that you can see the cardboard and push the scissors in between the two cardboard rings and start cutting all the way around it then put  some wool between the cardboard and tie it. 
Then cut 2 triangles out of the felt and sew 2 side of it together and fill it up with Stuffing and sew it up then sew it to the head you just made and sew the eye on to the sides.

Do all the steps again so that you have a bigger one for the body and two smaller ones for his feet.
