Anna just turned 3 (I still cannot believe this), and I decided to make her some puppets. I followed the basic plan outlined here. Her instructions and pattern pieces were clear and easy to use, but I don't think I'd make them this way again. I'm not crazy about things that have to be glued, so I think instead of plastic in the mouth piece I'd use some sort of sewable heavy weight interfacing. I used up some fabric scraps I had lying around, and in retrospect I probably should have used something sturdier like fleece so I wouldn't have needed to line them. In spite of not being my favorite project ever, I think they turned out cute enough and hopefully Anna will enjoy playing with them!
Mike took a couple of pictures of me talking with the mouth puppets :) It's hard to deny that puppets are pretty entertaining!
