Fun Felt Finger Puppets

Felt Finger Puppets Yoda and Jar Jar Binks
Felt Finger Puppets Yoda and Jar Jar BinksSo – the challenge was on… several scraps of felt, and half an hour to kill… the boys wanted a Baby Yoda, so we got to work.

Googly Eyes
Glue Gun (or PVA)

We each of us drew the Star Wars character Yoda from memory on a piece of paper, to establish a 2D representation, Baby Yoda’s ears and BIG eyes seemed to be the main recognisable features. We cut him out, glued him together and built up some fiddly layers to create his creased face and ears.

We had a bit of a debate about which eyes to use, as I was super keen to use the googly eyes with eyelashes. Funny how that got knocked on the head by the two boys… I was desperate to use them, so 10yo allowed me to add them to his Jar Jar Binks – you like?! Not perfect, but you can see a resemblance!
Google+ Hangout Crafting with FeltI hung out on Google+ with some craft buddies to share these finger puppets – Anthea from Zing Zing Tree made some lovely hair pinwheels. And some beautiful rings (we’ve put our orders in! Lizzie’s little felt mice were adorable, and our host Maggy from Red Ted Art showed us my favourite felt doughnuts and strawberries.
