Just in time for the second book to come out, please allow me to present a project from Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol:
I made this at the beginning of the summer and we had a lot of fun with it, though it's now in repose on the bed in the back bedroom. This was a fun and straightforward project. I didn't end up sewing the bottom valance on, but it's still upstairs with the trim on, so maybe for the theatre's second season.
I have come to believe that finger puppets are one of the five or seven best things in the world, and I try to get Ellie to make or play with them at every opportunity. OK, it's really an excuse for me to make them and play with them. Here's a cardinal flitting across the stage:
I think Ellie took this picture, which means I'm the puppeteer. Don't you think that if world leaders had to conduct press conferences, cabinet meetings, lunches with other heads of state, etc., while wearing a finger puppet, the world would be a better place?
