Rabbit Puppet DONE!

I started almost a year ago on this puppet! I can't believe it's been that long but I finally finished him.

Let's do a little re-cap shall we?

(Note: This is not a step-by-step I didn't take enough pictures along the way for that.) 

I sketched out the basic shape and idea of the head and mouth.  And cut it out of foam.


Glued and pinned all the foam together and it looked like this.

I cut out and glued together the body.


I covered the head with antron fleece and added the eyes (purchased at creativemin.com, nose (just a pom pom ball), ear lining (polar fleece)  and teeth (made of craft foam).

 Then I cut out the body covering from the antron fleece and cut the lining from an old t-shirt! Don't worry, the lining will never show. ;)

 This is the body cover and lining stitched together and turned right side out.


Here is one of the hands being sewn.


Here he is looking cute and almost done.  Still needs whiskers, but his personality is starting to emerge!


Here he is with arms wide open ready for a hug. :)

 I used florist wire for the whiskers.  It was green, but I spray painted them black.

He's finally done and I can't wait to see him in action!
