I thought about it, figured out how I could make the antlers, and then it suddenly hit me.
Why make just a deer puppet when I can make a Christmas REINdeer puppet.
BOOYAH! Here's what I made.
I am just so diggin' this puppet. I especially like the scarf...I'm actually thinking of making myself a scarf. And then I thought, "Well, if you're going to have a reindeer you just HAVE to have an elf." So I came up with this little guy. I'm almost finished with him. He doesn't have eyes; just shaggy bangs, because he's a bit of a rebel. And I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with the "blonde" hair or give him brown...just not sure. And I still need to make some ears for him. He actually reminds me of a thin, hairy Ziggy.
But I finally, FINALLY found some peach fleece to make "skin"...took me forever to find it. Anyway, I'll be busy making more puppets. Just wanted to show you what I was up to. I'm still trying to think of a way to make a snowman puppet. I know how to make his head, but the body is still a puzzle to me. But I'll be adding my reindeer (Reggie is his name) to my shop tomorrow. Totally cool!
So thanks for tuning in! Tootles...Theresa

This is a custom puppet I'm working on for a really nice lady in Canada. I'm also working on a princess puppet for her too. I'm still testing the waters with people puppets. They're a bit more time consuming but they do look pretty cute.
Anyway, I'm still working on other puppets. Taking Thanksgiving week off to make some more.
