I designed these cute little hand-puppets about 15 years ago. Their hands are made from specially sized felt. If displayed upright on stands (as in the photos above), these puppets will stand about 14-1/2" tall. (The stands I used for the photos are just plain cardboard tubes; they are not included).

The puppets' heads came from a prototype that I designed in clay. Plaster molds were made, and liquid latex poured into them again and again, until they gradually thickened enough to hold their shape. After the puppet heads cured, I smoothed, painted, and added accessories.

Lots of humor and fun went into designing these two little old ladies. Whether you're an avid puppeteer or a puppet aficionado or collector, this is such a splendid, adorable pair.
