Simple Puppets

Let's Pretend, p.4

7. To complete the puppets, dab glue at the ends of the sleeves on the back piece of the body, and place the oval hands on top. Then squeeze glue along the inside edge of the left side of the body, and press the front into place on top. Leaving a 2" gap at the neck, repeat on the other side. Attach the head by applying glue along the inner edges of the base of both pieces of the head and placing them over the neck opening.

8. Add details, such as belts, flowers, or stripes by cutting shapes from felt and gluing them to the body. Scallop the base of a dress with decorative scissors or pinking shears if desired.
