NOTE: The carrying case pattern that comes with this PDF is the same as the one that comes with the spring and bird finger puppets patterns. The farm animal finger puppets are all new.
These adorable felt finger puppets are simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using a whip stitch around the felt edges, a straight stitch for the sheep’s muzzle, and French knots for the eyes (a diagram is included for the French Knot). Instructions are included to make a goat, pig, cow, hen and sheep, along with a fabric carrying case (sample case is stitched by machine but it can be completed by hand). The finished puppets are approximately 3” x 3” (this measurement includes the ribbons). The puppets are made from scraps of felt, buttons and ribbons (a combination of acrylic and wool felt was used for samples). Felt circles or pompoms can be used in place of buttons. Finger puppets are not recommended for children under the age of three.
This eight page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make the farm animals, plus the rectangle measurements to make the carrying case (patterns are not included for carrying case); a materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photos.
