Posted on by adminComments Off on Horse Pattern – Customer AdapationPosted in News
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!
Want to make a zebra hand puppet? Use your sewing machine to create a lightweight hand puppet out of fleece, felt and foam. The zebra hand puppet features a felt mane that stand ups like a real zebra, cute felt hooves and large ears. Super adorable for playtime or story time.

As a volunteer reader for a local early literacy resource center called Make Way for Books, I read to preschoolers at Little Castle Child Care and Preschool here in Tucson AZ. It is so rewarding to read to all of the different ages, from one year up to five years old.
