Finger Puppets ITH Project

Finger Puppets ITH Project

Finger Puppets ITH Project

Here is a lovely project to use up all those colourful bits of felt in your stash. Each finger puppet is for the 4×4″ hoop. They are great for imaginative play and for Craft Stalls.

What You Will Need To Make Your ITH Key Fobs.

Hoop: 4×4″/100x100mm

Assorted colours of Craft Felt, same colour for front and back of puppet

Fabric Temporary Adhesive Spray I find Madeira works well for me.

Cut-Away Stabilizer

A few pins

Let’s Get Started

Hoop up your stabilizer. I have used a 300mmx 200mm hoop to fit in a few puppets at once.

Stitch the outline of the puppet onto the stabilizer. This outline is for the placement of the felt.

Cut 2 pieces of felt the same colour. One piece is for the top and the other piece will be used later for the back. Lightly spray the felt in place with the Fabric Adhesive.

Now stitch the embroidery onto the felt using your Colour Chart. Stop before the last Colour Change.

Take the matching piece of felt and spray glue it to the backside of the puppet. Place a couple of pins away from the stitching area to make sure the felt does not fold back.

Now stitch the Front and Back together. When done, cut the Puppet out from the stabilizer and gently push your finger in to separate the front from the back. All done!
