Hand Puppets Patterns
Before you start cutting out your felt, check hand size against the pattern - adjust the pattern width if necessary. Rather a little big, than too small!
Cut out two main body pieces
Cut out the appropriate patches.
Work on one of your main body pieces - We sewed the belly / snout patches on, using a running stitch, and then using self-adhesive felt, we stuck on the smaller patches. All can be either sewn or stuck on - up to you!
Buttons were stitched on for the eyes / noses and the bears each got a ribbon bow!
The monsters can be created as you will - every one is different!
Use your imagination - be creative and then have hours of fun with your hand puppets....!
