Take your fleece and lay it out.
Cut two pieces around your hand, cut off at the thumb and fingers. (See photo)
Cut one long piece that would fit around your wrist like a wristband, twice and wide as you want the end result (see photo)
*in the picture of the wrist part, it is folded in half.

Cut out a thumb piece on the fold. (See. photos! )
Cut out 2 pieces that will fit over your fingers (not thumb. see pictures again )
*if you want to add a horn, spikes, or something else that sticks up from the head of the puppet, cut
one of the pieces in half. and yes, there's a picture.

For Dinosaur:
Cut out little triangles out of white material (fleece or felt works best)
and also cut out black oval/circles for eyes (buttons work too)
Cut a bit of red yarn (about 1 1/2 inches, to make a loop that is a bit larger than your button)

For Narwhal:
Cut out a horn-shaped triangle from white fleece/felt.
Cut out eyes from black fleece or felt.
Cut 1 1/2 inch of matching yarn
