Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus: Puppet
SO I had grand ambitions to make a Pigeon puppet for a storytime I have coming up this month. Things didn’t quite go according to plan–probably my rusty sewing machine skills. Man, puppets are hard!
First, I blocked out my pattern. Then I sewed on my eyes and collars, and made my wings. Then I flipped everything inside-out and sewed the pieces together. I did the same with the inside lining. I stuffed my puppet and inserted a knitting needle to keep the neck sturdy. The knitting needle was actually really useful because its something I can hold onto when I am using the puppet in my storytime. Finally, I attached my lining and got my puppet a felt beak and legs.
Overall… it works. Some flaws and I’d probably change some things next time but good enough for a fun storytime tool.
What do you think?
That’s all for now!
