50% off monkey puppet pattern. Website only sale ends 10-31-19.
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 email@example.com.
Ironically, our pattern of the month is the Monkey! The Monkey pattern is on sale until Oct. 31, 2019 for only $2.50!
We apologize for any inconvenience caused during our upgrading our website. At the moment, the only way to purchase our products is through our Etsy store.
Hopefully our store will be back on line soon.
We haven’t created a new pattern in quite a while.
A friend, Cindy, was telling us that she needed a squirrel puppet to go with a story she was writing. She also mentioned that she was having trouble turning a sock puppet into a squirrel. It just wasn’t working out the way she envisioned. We wondered if we could create a squirrel puppet.
Due to changes at Craftsy, our pattern store will be closed as of December 28, 2018. This means both our free and paid patterns will no longer be available to purchase from Craftsy.
You can still find all of our free and paid patterns on our website. The felt dog puppet patterns sold only at Craftsy will be available from our website in early 2019.
Our free felt hand puppet patterns can be found here.
You can find our hand puppet patterns for sale at our website store.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, The Tucson Puppet Lady is on permanent hiatus for all services offered in the Tucson area. This includes puppet shows, puppet making workshops and one on one instruction.
We will still honor any gift certificates that have been issued. Please use our contact information to schedule our services if you have a gift certificate.
Thank you to everyone for supporting us.
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!
A funny thing happened on my way to create a smaller, lighter weight human type puppet pattern. I created a goose-man. No matter how I looked at it, the puppet looked like a goose. Even though I wasn’t even thinking of adding a goose to our line animal puppet patterns, I now had one. I only had to do a little adjusting to make the puppet look like a goose. With the addition of using white fleece and orange felt I definitely had a goose!
My daughter and business partner, Laura, has been wanting me to create dinosaur patterns for quite some time now.
Since it is so hot in Tucson AZ now because we are in the middle of summer, there isn’t much we can do outside. It is too hot. Therefore, we’ve been trying to stay cool indoors and create patterns.
