Title: First Post: Alice in Wonderland finger puppets
Post by: shmac on August 08, 2007 06:05:40 PM
After almost 2 years of lurking, I am finally posting something.  I made these finger puppets for my daughter's teacher a few months back.



The Queen of Hearts is unfinished in this picture.  I ended up fixing her hair in an up-do and I added a crown.  Unfortunately, I did not get a picture.


I have been so inspired by this site but I have been too nervous to post until now.

Those are just........wow there are no words. They most have taken forever and the look great. I now worship your thread crochet skills.
Were they really hard to do? and does the recipient like them cause if not I'll give them a great home ;D

These are just amazing, and beautifully done.  What a great tool to use to introduce kids to books, too!  I could imagine all kinds of literary amigurumi and puppet sets.... Fun!!

Wow thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments!

These are not too hard to make.  Once I figured out how to make the eyes, everything else was cake.  Of course, the hair is time consuming. 

Those are excellent!!!  Any chance of a tutorial any time soon?  LOVE IT!
Unfortunately I did not write down what I did as I went along.  My mom has requested a set for her class so if I make her one, I will try to put together a tutorial.  It probably will be awhile before I can do that though.

I made a set for my kids because I love Alice in Wonderland but they are too little to sit and listen to a story with so few pictures.  With these they can act out the story while they listen.  I have also made them a set from The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan.  I am always looking for more books that I can craft a set of finger puppets for.

What a lovely idea -- and so nicely done. I really like all the detail on them. You have captured their characters very well.

this is such a great and original topic using finger puppets.....and they are so unbelieveably cute ;)
my kids would sove these...cause they are just the right size for their small hands...i just love the alice in wonderland theme...if i make something similar i just hope that my kids don't sneak these to school cause then we'd have to wait a whole yr to get them back :D
