I have a confession! I love to make finger puppets and I love wool felt! I just finished this set of Winnie the Pooh finger puppets and I can't wait to see if the kids at the hospital like them.
I trace all the pieces onto freezer paper and iron the paper to the wool felt. Then I sit down, put my feet up, turn on the TV, and hand sew them. I made this set in an evening. While I was stitching these I wondered if Widia, the designer, would like to do a giveaway.
Widia's Etsy store is called Floral Blossom and she has the very cutest finger puppets. Her patterns are very reasonably priced, very clear with photos and drawings, and so much fun to make. Widia lives in Indonesia but all her patterns are PDF so there is no shipping charges. I emailed her and, of course, she said yes.
She is giving away 2 finger puppet patterns. Zoo Friends and my very most favorite - I've made at least 6 sets - Little Monsters!
And what do you need to make finger puppets besides the pattern? Wool felt of course! I contacted Renae at Benzie Bazaar on Etsy - the only place that I buy wool felt - and she has offered EVERYONE a 10% discount in her store! And I'm going to use it. Hope you do too. Just add "SEWINGMILES10" in the appropriate box at check out. You might also want to visit Renae's other Etsy store for finished items (10% discount does not apply at this shop). Thanks Renae!
