So, it has been a while since I've done Touring Tuesday. Mainly because, time has gotten away from me!
Our vacation is in two weeks and something that our children seem to enjoy are puppets. AND my husband suggested sock puppets when I was asking him what kinds of travel surprise toys I could make the kids.
In my search for a great tutorial (sorry ladies, there weren't many), I came across this one. The question my friend asked me when I showed these to her was, "Did you have to sew anything?" That is one great perk of this tutorial; it is a no sew!!
Here are my 4 versions made from discarded knee socks of mine.
Googly eyes starin' at you!!
This one's my favorite! I loved how the hair turned out. The only thing I bought for this project was the googly eyes. My kids think they're hilarious and I didn't have any on hand. Everything else I had already.
Is it me? Or do those eyes follow you wherever you go? Like those attractions at a carnival!
This one has been named "Red." We are an original bunch here :)
The hair on Red didn't come out as well as the others. I had not yet come up with the ingenious idea of taking a small piece of yarn and tying it into a bunch.
This one just strikes me as a "Fred." Messy hair and ears that stick up!
You can see in this photo how I tied a bunch of yarn with a smaller piece of yarn. By doing that, you have a more solid piece to hot glue to the puppet.
If you have any questions on how I did anything on these puppets, let me know. The tute is great for the construction of the puppet, but doesn't show you how she made any of the accessories. That's why the hair on my first one turned out a bit off. I didnt' really know what I was doing. When I came back for the second one, I had thought about it a bit. Tying the yarn worked beautifully for the pink haired pig tailed puppet! :)
What do you think?
