Our Cart is Working Again!

Finally our shopping cart is working again! It’s been a harrowing two weeks due to a website update that threw a huge monkey wrench into the system which wouldn’t allow anyone to purchase from our store. We rushed the best experts to the scene and we are so happy that you can now make purchases. If you have any difficulties please contact us at rose@thetucsonpuppetlady.com.

Ironically, our pattern of the month is the Monkey! The Monkey pattern is on sale until Oct. 31, 2019 for only $2.50!

Horse Pattern – Customer Adapation

We love it when a customer adapts one of our animal puppet patterns to create what they want. Maureen used our horse pattern and adapted it to give the horse a blaze and chest markings.  She looped the strips of fabric for the mane and forelock, giving it a 3 dimensional look.  She left off the legs.  The eyes are flatter with larger pupils than what is on the pattern.  These changes give the puppet a whole new look which is just adorable!
