Felt has to be the easiest fabric to work with, so designing super-cute projects for you to make at home is on the top of our “favorites” list at the moment. Our felt finger puppets were a joy to design and even more fun to make. We like to create projects that are achievable for everyone and this project hits the nail on the head. The templates are simple to download, print and cut at home. Then it’s just a matter of blanket stitching the front and back of each animal together – an easy stitch that is a great for newbies or kids! We also stitched our little bead eyes and mouths but the rest of the details are added with glue, making this the perfect afternoon craft for anyone of any age or ability!
There are five animals in this set, a baby monkey, little giraffe, a ring-tailed lemur, baby leapord and tiny giselle. Once you have the templates, you can literally make as many as you want. We thought they’d make great DIY crafts for kids to complete at a children’s birthday party, to pop into goody bags or to give as a gift to a school friend. We used a good quality felt to make our finger puppets which means they can stand upright on a toy shelf or windowsill when they’re not being played with – they make a super-cute display! Have fun making your felt finger puppets and if you’re after more DIY inspiration come see us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for a daily dose of crafty goodness. See you there! ~ Lia
