For my friend's son, Ian, first birthday, I made him a set of Star Wars felt finger puppets. His dad's a Star Wars buff, so I'm imagining they'll (or he'll) have a lot of fun with the puppets.
I'm not a Star Wars buff, but my husband said they should be very "accurate", otherwise, his dad is going to notice.
After hours of research, here are the completed puppets:
Here are few close ups:
I didn't have a pattern to work with. I started with the basic finger puppet shape, and then cut pieces of felt based on my sketch. Slowly, putting the puppets together by sewing and layering pieces of felt in place.
Finally, I made a pouch (with Ian's name in Star Wars' font of course!) to store all of his puppets.
