tools needed
glue gun
scissors
needle and thread 
marker
cutter
sewing machine

materials needed
  sponge /foam or whatever name this material has, i use the sponge i found in an old mattress on the streets of berlin
so,cut all those mattresses you find in the garbage or on the street because this is a wonderfull material to build puppets
contact cement

fleece   yellow   brown red  white , i got mine at a 99 cent shop  so you can find that there (at least in europe)
poliester stuffing

cut two pieces from a thick sponge and two pannels from a thin one
glue together to form a brick form with a hole inside
use contact cement to glue foam
apply to both sides .wait for two minutes and then bond parts together

Step 2: Mark and cut mouth

mark the line of the mouth about one third from the top of the sponge
cut the hole with a cutter,dip the blade in watter because this makes it possible to cut the sponge
without wather on the blade it is very hard
from the middle of the mouth mark a line on each side(top amd bottom perpendicular to first line and cut
in this cut we will glue a triangle which will give the shape of the mouth

Step 3: Glue triangle

Not going to lie, that scares the hell out of me.

But it is very nicely made, just scary. ^^
I have to agree with splinks on this one...
