Finger puppet fun

I had some ideas of what to make for my first 2009 update for the shop but partway through making them I suddenly got so enthused to make finger puppets that I just had to make them. You know that feeling a crafter sometimes get where you simply can’t sleep until you’ve got out of bed and put in a good couple of hours on your project? It was like that. There were some problems along the way – a pig that  looked more like a pink horse, half sewing a head shut before I realised that having a face might help it. Trying to redesign the elephant so it didn’t look phallic.

So, after much stitching, here’s my first Year of Toys listings:

African animal finger puppets:

And by the way thats Dave’s wrist in the photos. Just in case you think I’m that hairy. And omg my blog entry is invisible. Literally. I’m typing and it’s completely invisible. Weird.
