Christmas is fast approaching, and I've got a new person to bestow gifts upon...
my 8 month old neice, Tera!
Money is tight for everyone this year, but I really wanted to do something that was fun and meaningful. After tearing apart my closet for ideas, I found a bag of stuffed cows that I've collected over the years (I have a thing for cows). Two of the cows were match-y, so I decided to gut them a turn them into hand puppets. Here's a photo tutorial on the toy-to-puppet transition:
I de-stuffed the whole cow except for his head
Piece of scrap cloth shoved into his head to keep the suffing in
All sewn up
Make sure you leave a hole to put your fingers in
Celebrating the successful transition with a beer
My dog was trying to eat them the entire time!
