January 24, 2012This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Owl Puppet Edition
By Betty Crafter
I finally finished my cowichan (blogged here if you want to see) so at last I have some time freed up to work on other projects! And it was no problem deciding what to do next. You may remember me talking about this adorable pamphlet Retro Ruth found and sent my way:
Little Betty’s birthday is coming up and I thought it would be pretty cute to get her a puppet theater and make her several of these felt puppets. This week I have one finished I can show you – please meet Professor Who!
Isn’t he adorable? It was ridiculously easy to make. It only took me about an hour to cut everything out and put it all together. These projects are meant for kids to do, so I should have no problem knocking out several more over the next couple of weeks. I’m finding myself wishing I had the right vintage materials on hand, like felt in vintage colors, chenille stems, and vintage braids and trims. Do I dare go on an etsy shopping spree? Stay tuned next time to find out!
