A herd of animal puppets
Another one of the special orders I had during the busy time before Christmas was for a set of seven hand puppets. The first time I made these hand puppets was for my nephew a few years back. I made him a set of farm animals including a sheep, cow, horse and pig. I was working on editing the pattern and made another set which I put up for sale individually in my Etsy shop. All the others had sold except for the sheep when a customer asked if I could make any other animals. I told them of the ones that I had already made and said that I could also make other animals if they had something in mind. They requested the farm animals plus a lion, an elephant and a bear.
I still need to finish editing the pattern for sale, and now I have a few more animals to add to the options. I'll probably end up doing a few different sets that use the same basic pattern. There are so many options!
The pattern is now available! It's called Hand Puppet Menagerie and includes options for 20 animals.
