Learn how to make a whole gang of farm animal finger puppets with Alison of Kata Golda. Templates are included to make a dog, cat, pig, chick, and bunny, and each finger puppet is made the same way – with two pieces of felt and a few simple stitches. But the cute hand-stitched faces and little details are what give each farm animal their distinctive traits. Alison shares tips for free-hand stitching the features, and demonstrates how to sew the front to the back with blanket stitch.

Materials:
  • 100% Wool Felt - For smaller puppets you will need two 2 ½” x 3 1/2” pieces per animal; For larger puppets you will need two 4” x 6” pieces per animal (Pig - light pink and peach; Chick - yellow and light yellow plus scrap of red; dog - dark brown tan plus scrap of red; rabbit - oatmeal and white; cat - orange and oatmeal)
