But I’m a beginner, can I sew one?
-Yes! We are constantly being told by beginners how much fun and sense of accomplishment they had making a puppet. The best part is when they played with the kids.
-As long as you have the basic skills of hand sewing and simple machine sewing you can do it!
-The sewing skills you learn can be used to sew other projects.
-We suggest starting with a more simple looking pattern. Our Horse Hand Puppet Sewing Pattern is a good choice.
-We have bonus video tutorials for every one of our puppet and costume sewing patterns. The video shows me making the puppet or costume from laying out of pattern to sewing on facial features and finishing touches.
