My nephew loves hand puppets…he received a puppet theatre and a few puppets for his birthday last year. When he came over last week, I asked him if he wanted to make a craft…he said yes. I asked, what would you like to make…he said a puppet. We were going to make it out of paper…but since I already had some canvas out we made it out of that…I think it turned out pretty cool.

I traced his hand onto the canvas and cut it out…stitched around the outside and cut with pinking shears to keep it from fraying. We both colored it…we put a piece of cardboard between the layers so it wouldn’t soak through since we were using both Copic makers and Pitt brush markers. I heat set everything so it should be washable.
So what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
