Step 2

Sew them together at the edges, leaving enough room for your finger. If there is extra felt on the outside of the seam you just made, then cut it off. Do not cut to close to the edge, though. Afterwards, pull it inside out so the extra felt does not show

Tips: Be adventurous with how you want the finger puppet to look. Use different colored felts, or maybe add things like ears or a tail. Beads or dots of fabric paint can substitute for the usual googly eyes. Some people like a puppet with a personality. If you want yours to look mean and grumpy, try dark purple felt and use hard things like beads. If you're shooting for a happy little friend, yellow felt and googly eyes would work well. Warnings: If you are using a sewing machine, keep your fingers away from the needle. If you are just sewing by hand, don't prick yourself! Make sure small children don't get a hold of little parts like beads or needles.
