The latest fantasy finger puppets - Teeny the Elf, Sir Back-Loops-Only, and One of Many.  Teeny is just an attempt to make a generic small figure as a basis for other characters.  Sir Back-Loops-Only is my favourite from this group, because of how the armour came out - it is indeed back loops only, which I thought gave it a nice texture, kind of like scale mail.

One of Many is a grasshopper man, in case you can't tell.  One has come representing Galactic Swarm 15339 to help us Earthlings with our little human problem.  I was actually setting out to make a witch, but the way I shaped the head just said "Grasshopper" to me, so I gave him four arms/wings and went with that.




This picture shows the back loops "scale mail" a bit better.

Little guys seem to relate very well to these pocket-sized critters.  My daughter makes up the most insane stories for them.  If you know any four-year-old girls, you can imagine the sort of soap opera-styled fairy tale lunacy you can get with a bunch of these.  I'm still trying to make a princess - the hair is tricky.

how cute! I'm planning on making my nieces & nephews (I've got 7!) some fingerpuppets as a way for me to practice & gain skills.

These are great practice projects, since they are super-quick and allow you to play around with different yarns and stitches but are more fun than simply swatching. As a parent, I also think it's good for kids to be playing with handmade, unique toys that they can make up whatever stories they want for. I see way too many kids that think the world begins with Barbie and ends with Disney Princesses.  I'm sure your nieces and nephews (and their parents) will love them.
