I made my twins each a set of finger puppets for their birthday a few days ago.  My 5 year old son loves all things Mario so his puppets are Mario and Luigi.  I somehow ran out of time to make more so I will be adding Princess Peach and Bowser for Christmas.  In the meantime, here are Mario and Luigi.



I wrote up the pattern for the body and arms.  This is the base that I use to make most of my finger puppets.  I do not generally write patterns so if anything is unclear, let me know and I will do my best to answer any questions.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. 

Did you make the pattern yourself or is it one you found online somewhere? 

I made these up as I went along.  I do make a lot of finger puppets though and I wrote down a pattern for the body and arms.  If anyone is interested, I would be happy to post that.   Cheesy
