i have a 3 year old little brother who just loves doing different "monster" voices and scaring people.. typical boy right! anyways so i was bored one night and staring at these foam monster stickers that i bought my brother- that my mom forced me to take away from him because she didnt want to have to unstick them from any of her furniture... so i thought rather than have the whole bucket go to waste i got some felt fabric in different colors and  then stuck one of the stickers on it... i then cut out the sticker and about a 2" strip of the felt that was under neath it... keeping it all one piece so that i had a monster sticker with a strip of fabric underneath it... i then cut little slits on each side just under the sticker so that i could wrap the 2" strip around my finger... then i simply hand-stitched the strip to make a finger hole... if you could qualify my stitching as that.. lol - im a beginner.. please don't be too harsh. i did it for a several more monster characters and WAHLA! finger puppets... my brother really liked them and i'm planning on making a finger puppet stage in the near future ... i think this would be a nice gift for any kid providing you do the stitching a little better than i did. thanks for looking!

dreams and drive are two separate things.. but you need both to succeed.
