We're not identical you know. Brother, where is your shirt? These two were experiments in wigs. My first faux fur wig and my first successful (imo) yarn wig. The girl puppet uses the Glorified Sock pattern from Project Puppet. They boy was a pattern I already had from an old puppet. This isn't the pattern but it is similar and could be used instead.
I wanted to try a different head shape but didn't want to use a new piece of fabric just in case it didn't work. So I had just enough green left over from the crocodile to make the head and hands. I rummaged through my scraps and found left over flannel to make pajamas, and used scrap fabric for the arms since you can't see them anyway! The result? Viola! Will you read me a story? This little guy was made from an old pattern I had but this one is similar.
This is an experiment in "blinking eyes." His eyes don't really blink but they do raise up and down. He's not the best looking puppet. Some of my friends say he looks like a Simpson, but I didn't intend that! He was made without a pattern using the Paul Louis Tutorials. They eyes were based on a tutorial like this. Now this little guy, I love! He's my first puppet of this shape. I love him! He's a donkey ya know. Hee Haw!!! He's from the Project Puppet Glorified Sock Pattern . This is my current fav. My 10 yo son designed him, I did the sewing; he did the choosing and the stuffing. ;) He's out of this world! This guy is also from the Project Puppet Glorified Sock Pattern .
