In honor of March being national craft month I decided to finally make something of my own instead of drooling all over everyone else's creations!

I made lumberjack puppets to use in a video shortly. A puppet stage is my next project. After that I'll most likely give them to a friend's kids to use.

All 5 only took me around 6 or so hours to make.

Materials used:
   Puppet pattern found online  
   several different colored felt squares
   1/4 yard of 4 different lumberjack-patterned fabrics
   1/4 yard brown fur fabric
   1.5 yards of black elastic  
   Old pair of denim jeans
   brown yarn
   Aluminum foil
   Glue gun
   pack of googly eyes
   blue ribbon
   small buttons
   black marker

They stand 11 inches tall and their arm span is 9 inches.

I still need to put some mouths on a few of them but I'm undecided what I want to use or what they should look like. Any ideas?
Here are some more photos of the process and a few details as well as the back.

ahhhhhhh! THEY ARE SO CUTE! Remind me of south park too!

I may not be perfect, but I'm so close it's almost eerie.
