Finger Puppets These are just a few of the finger puppets that I made for the Smiles for Children Project. All done in the hoop with felt. In a larger hoop, I was able to get 4 of the same puppets and then edited the designs so that I wouldn't have to change thread for each animal. At the last color change, you slip another layer of felt under the hoop and stitch. The monkey take the longest because his face in all thread but he is too cute. Some have to be slit at the bottom so that you can get your finger inside.
