Christmas Finger Puppet Set

Okay, so these aren't actually finger puppets.  I bought the pattern for them at Precious Patterns on Etsy, and I fully intended to make them into puppets.  But I also plan to sell them on my Etsy shop, and I decided it would be more time efficient and perfectly acceptable to make them into flannel board figures instead.  So rather than stitch everything together, I followed the patterns but glued them together instead.  I think it works!  I know the kids will love them (though I probably won't use the Santa and Mrs. Claus in the classroom, since I steer away from the whole "get, get, get" aspect of the holidays.  Except in my personal life ;)).

If you're not a seamstress but you love how these look, I think they would be easy enough to make into finger puppets simply by gluing the various pieces together as I did, and then just whip stitching around the outer edges.  I adore the look of these.  My farm and jungle finger puppet patterns came from the same site, and I have the Halloween set just waiting to be made :)






These Christmas Cuties are available for sale at my Etsy Shop--please come visit me there!
