Craft Hope: Finger Puppets

Craft Hope Finger Puppets

January 12, 2015 Sarah Coggins

I’ve been familiar with Craft Hope for some time now and kept intending to participate in one of the projects. The idea of combining crafting with giving back and helping others spoke to me. Unfortunately, I would forget or loose track of time. No more. I saw the posting for the latest project (Finger Puppets) at the beginning of the month and knew this project was something simple that I could definitely jump on. I already have quite a bit of felt in my stash so I dug it out, printed out the templates and grabbed our son to assist me.

Here are the first two finger puppets we created:

Adorable, right? And so incredibly easy to make. We used the provided free templates and directions to create them. Dylan chose the colors and traced the patterns. He even helped me a bit with the cutting while I pieced them together and did the sewing.

While I was busy sewing the monkey, I glanced up to find him creating his own design – a bumble bee. Another reason I love a project like this as it brought out the creativity in my son. He cut and placed every piece in this design and then pinned it so I can sew it for him. How cute is that? I think I’ll let him keep this one. 🙂

If you are interested in participating, see this post (link no longer valid) from Country Woman magazine for the free templates and instructions about where to mail your completed puppets. The puppets will be collected and then shipped to The Miracle Foundation to help children in India with learning and communication skills. The deadline for the project is March 9, 2015. If you join in, leave a link in the comments. Dylan & I would love to see your creations.

** See the final update on this project from Craft Hope here. 5,733 finger puppets were made!**
