I have been seeing peoples entrys and decided to enter with the Hand Puppet that I made last week for My 7 month old nephew as a Christmas gift. My nephew really loves puppets..REALLY loves them!

This is Sherman..he is a goblin/monster who is terrified of babies! You can tell by his horrified expression! He is screaming in terror I assure you, completely senseless,you couldn't find a more adorable nephew if you looked for a year.

I risked my life to get this closeup..so pretend it isn't blurry! While not wanting to get anywhere near babies, he has no problem's with maiming adults so keep your distance if you value any of your more visible bits.

Some of you might want to look away on this one..I snagged one more photo and got a shot of his privates Shocked

His body is some really soft fake fur that I had leftover from a pillowcase for my sister a few months ago, His face is felt pieces stitched onto some tan cotton, and some brown safety eyes. The inside where the hand goes is satin layered with some muslin underneath for stabilty and because the pegs on the backs of the eyes are kind of long.
This took me two days to complete, I probably could have made it quicker but I handsewed the entire thing..ughh..My poor fingers from sewing through all that fur and felt.

I hope you if you like him you will Vote for Me Cheesy
