The entire puppet can be glued except for the gathering of the neckline which must be sewed.

The puppet’s head is made from the fingertip of a glove which is stuffed with polyester stuffing. Follow the photo instructions to make the puppet.

TO MAKE THE FELT MOTIF: cut 2 layers of felt from the desired pattern. Glue the edges together after inserting a small amount of polyester stuffing. Add details with felt or felt pen. The motif is attached to the glove by means of Velcro.

TO MAKE THE HEAD SHAWL: Cut felt or fleece 7″(18cm) x 2″(5cm). Arrange the shawl on the puppet’s head according to the photo. Secure with a piece of a pipc cleaner around the crown of the head.

TO MAKE THE ROBE: Cut out fabric 5.5″(14cm) x 3″(7.5cm) for the SLEEVE and 8″(20cm) x 4.5″(11cm) for the ROBE. All the hems can be glued or sewn. If you don’t sew glue works fine! As you can see from the photo, there is only one long sleeve and it is glued (or sewn)to the back of the robe.
