I wanted to post pictures of the puppets I made a couple years ago. When I was a little girl my mom's friend Bonnie made a puppet for her similar to these ones, and I always loved playing with it. We named it Einnob (Bonnie spelled backwards--pronounced "EE-Nob"). I found a pattern a few years ago and I made almost 40 puppets before Christmas 2014. I gave one to my nieces and nephews under the age of 12, sold a few, and donated the rest to a battered women's shelter. They have made great gifts for my son's elementary teachers, and all the kids in his class wanted one. I have also made them as birthday gifts and also gave one to each of our foster kids. I love my little family of Einnobs.
|This is the one I made for my youngest son. He wanted it pretty simple. He was on a huge Dr. Who kick at the time and named his puppet "Dalek"|
|The red one I made for my daughter (She named it Reds) and the other one was made for her best friend. They posed their puppets together and took a picture.|
|My son wanted to give one to his teacher. He chose the eyes and nose.|
|This one was my favorite. My son's best friend wanted one, and we let him choose the fur. I also let him choose the eyes and nose. Sadly, the store where I bought this fur went out of business. They had a wonderful selection of faux furs.|
|My daughter loves her puppet (and her fedora)|
