So, by way of introduction, I'd just like to say that I've never really sewn anything before. I've also never made a puppet that was more than a paper bag. This was my first shot. It's a muppet-inspired puppet that I call Molly.









She's made out of a foam ball, and old shirt, a baby shirt, felt, yarn, glue, and a wooden skewer to control the arm.

Thoughts?

She's wonderful! You know, the first Kermit was made from Jim Henson's mom's coat, so this is much in the Muppet spirit.

Very good work.  She looks just like a muppet.
