E-I-E-I-OH So Cute Puppets

FIRST: It is a new week of competition over at Made by Heidi. It is down to only three ladies. The voting has been INTENSE. I APPRECIATE and am so grateful for those of you who went and voted...even if you think this whole thing is silly...but did it just cause you love me. ONLY 3 more weeks of it...I promise. 

So head on over this week for our Nursery Rhyme themed projects and vote for your favorite.



Last week for I'm Made for Competition (which the thinning in the lining of my stomach and the thickening of my rump is telling me I am NOT made for competition...oh and the fact that I am getting BLOWN away in the voting...) I made some pretty stinking cute felt hand puppets.

The theme was On the Farm...so Old MacDonald had to make an appearance..


Old MacDonald (aka Santa in the off season...haha...) 


had a whole farm full of THE cutest animals



E-I-E-I-OH SO CUTE.



My favorite part was the back of these puppets. LOVED each little tail, spot and feather. I also LOVED that my boys begged to play with each one as I finished them. 

The fam favorite was this guy...



with a Quack, Quack here and a Quack, Quack there.

Since this was a pretty time consuming project I wanted to see exactly how much interest there would be in a tutorial with pattern. I have a simple photo instruction of how to assemble the horse puppet, which would give the basic instructions for all of them.  The labor intensive part...for me that is...would be to make my pattern ready to scan and download since I would have every teeny tiny detail of each puppet available to you.

SO are you interested??? Would you like to have this loverly projects on your to-do list? Let me know. If there is enough interest I will bust that out this week.

I am making these puppets for a girl from our church going to Africa to help in several children places. I have started this wonderful tutorial but I cannot find the blue wave in front of the duck. I know it is probably right in front of my eyes, sorry. Thank you for your time.
