Very easy and quick to make, these finger puppets are made of felt. There's no sewing involved, you know. It is very easy to paste with textile glue. The buttons serve as a nose and the wiggle eyes are also glued quickly and easily. Miss Romy is a student in the first year of kindergarten and sent this tip to us to share with you. So do you have the theme Farm in class, or do you just want to make them for home? That's so squeaky!
Supplies:Pieces of felt in white, grey, pink and black, textile glue (felt glue), 3 buttons, 6 eyelets, scissors and your own finger as a fit!
1. Put your finger on a piece of felt and draw a rectangle around here. Make sure to do this wide enough because with the gluing your doll becomes a lot narrower and of course you want your finger to fit well in.
2. Cut out the rectangle and use it as a template to cut out the 2nd rectangle, it should be the same size.
3. Then glue them together with felt glue. I had cut a side a bit crooked myself, this one I chose to paste because later the head comes on. Then you stick the sides (glue as thin as possible to make sure your finger fits in). From below you leave a hole open for inserting your finger. To press it well and make it stick well, I put the glue bottle on it for one minute.
4. Cut a circle out of the felt so large that your rectangle of the bodice is covered as closely as possible. Stick it to the bodice with felt glue. Also here I put the glue bottle on it to press it properly.
5. Cut out the ears. This shape is of course due to the animal you choose: round, pointed... and you stick this again with felt glue. Then press it back on with the glue bottle.
6. For the nose use a pink button. This paste best with allslime, again I pressed it again with the glue bottle.
7. Then you can stick the small wiggle eyes, also with all mucus (or possibly self-adhesive eyelets).
8. Finally, add the last perks, such as the cow's stains, the paws and the whiskers in the cat... and let all the glue dry up well. And your finger puppet is ready!
Lots of fun, greetings from Miss Romyy
