I try to reduce waste as much as possible which is hard when it comes to kids’ Birthday parties. I was trying to find a way to do pass the parcel for 12 kids without being wasteful and came up with the idea of 12 felt finger puppets with vegan lollipops inside. The party theme was woodland so I wanted to design woodland animals which would be easy to make (as I needed 12). I used wool mix felt from from the lovely Pixie Rose on eBay. I had left over brown and beige felt from the campfire I made for the party and some grey (called Grey Metal Colour: 42, also from Pixie Rose).
I made 3 simple designs: a fox, an owl and a squirrel. With a black Sharpie, I drew on the eyes and noses.
With craft glue, I stuck the lighter felt on.
And then machine sewed the two parts of the puppet together. I then put the lollipop inside. Perfect party treat, plus a finger puppet to keep!
