I had "sewing camp" with my kids over the summer and taught them both to use a sewing machine, how to hand stitch and some other basic stuff.  After the basic lessons were over, the first thing they wanted to do was to make Potter Puppet Pals!  We're big fans of the videos and they thought it would be awesome to have versions of their own.

We've made Harry, Ron & Hermione so far.  We're hoping to make Snape, Dumbledore & Voldemort the next time they have a school holiday.

Made out of felt with recycled polyfil.  Small amounts of fabric pain used for the faces.  My 12 year old daughter made Hermione and my 9 year old son made Ron.  I made Harry.  I also painted all their faces.

Hope you like them!

Those are great! This past summer my cousins visited and one of the cousins was flying back from Germany so for a surprise the rest of us and her boyfriend acted out a whole skit from Potter Puppet Pals(the mysterious ticking sound). I was dumbledore. It was hilarious. We practiced the whole night before her plane got in. I felt silly only for a moment being 20 years old and doing that, but then I looked at her 19 year old bf who was at least 6 inches taller than me and kept on!

I plan on making two D's, one with robes and one nakey time.  Wink  I thought about removable clothes, but since this is project with my kids, I want to keep it as easy as possible for the time being.  Tongue
