Christmas gifts have begun!

I suppose it’s only natural that I’m sewing quite a few of our Christmas gifts this year. Most of them won’t be posted until after the recipients have received them, but in the case of my young 2 and 4 year old cousins J and C, I doubt that they follow my blog closely enough for the surprise to be ruined!

I asked my aunt Suzanne if she thought her kids would enjoy a handmade gift, and when I mentioned puppets among the possibilities she was very enthusiastic. So, I Google’d “how to make a puppet” hoping for a free pattern of some kind online, and I was ELATED to find this video tutorial. Absolutely awesome!

Now to make a few more for my daughter. Otherwise I’m not sure how I’m going to pry these away to get them wrapped!

    hopefully those kids aren’t afraid of puppets.

    The kids LOVE the puppets that look like them. I was afraid the feathery hair would be eaten by our cats who will destroy anything feather-like, but I think they must be afraid of the open mouths and faces. The puppets are so cute and kids have a blast “biting” each other.
