In this tutorial we will bring you back in time to make a Purple Pioneer Puppet. To start off Here are some things you will need:
-A puppet head and body pattern, I used this great free pattern, http://bashfulpuppet.blogspot.com/2008/07/head-pattern.html. You could also buy a pattern off of Project puppet.com.
-1/2" poly-urethane foam (get at fabric or craft stores, usually comes in green)
-Fleece your choice in color or white antron fleece if you are planning to dye (I bought antron fleece, which is a higher grade of fleece, I buy my antron fleece from Out of the Box Puppets.com)
-RIT DYE, I dyed my fabric the 538 color http://www.ritdye.com/colorit_color_formula_guide
-Fish filter tubing
-Doll wig or hair extensions
-Plastic craft eyes (I buy mine from Out of the Box Puppets)
-1" Styrofoam ball
-Baby cloths or Make your own cloths
Let's get started!
Step 1: The Skull
First I cut out the foam skull pattern out of my 1/2" foam and then glue it together using contact cement. (When gluing contact cement apply very small amounts and let dry till tacky then stick together)
