My simple moving mouth puppets  (Read 5624 times)

I have been working out making a simple moving mouth puppet and this is what I have come up with. The pattern I made is very simple - if you can follow a line on your sewing machine you can make this puppet. My goal was to make a puppet that could be personalized in multiple ways, but is simple to sew and does not require much in the way of supplies. I am taking one along to show my son - who works at Animax Design in Nashville - so he can give me pointers on how to improve it, but I am pleased with the results. I will be making a bunch of "Bare Puppet Bodies" for the kids at my uncoming puppet workshop. Let me know what you think! 007

Lisa, i like them! I have some very similar ones like it that I made a pattern for, too. I decided to go with round monster-type eyes- because i had a bunch of smaller styrofoam balls donated to me. Have a great time with your workshop.

These are adorable Lisa and I love the differing characters you've invented already. I would love to see photos of the end result of the workshop. Good luck!

Great stuff! As has been mentioned already simple can be wonderful! You've certainly proven that with your design.

I thought I had posted a picture of the ones the kids did maybe I forgot - here they are. I have been having fun making all kinds to sell at an upcoming craft show!

They look like such fun! I'm really not surprised if kids love your workshops/shows even more now.

I think this is a great idea! I am working as the craft and puppetry specialist for a YWCA camp this summer.  I am always on the lookout for new and interesting (and not cheesy) puppetry techniques that I can use in a class setting of 30+ kids. If you could create something like this where a glue gun could be substituted for the sewing machine that would be amazing! Camp starts Monday and I am still in need of some more cool new  puppet projects for the classroom. Sock puppets are my specialty. But last year I did sock, stick, simple felt hand puppets, and bag puppets with them. I want to try shadow puppets this year but a moving mouth puppet would really be great too!

If anyone can volunteer some ideas I have not mentioned (especially an  easy hand puppets technique with moving mouths),  or new twists on old favorites, PLEASE, PLEASE  feel free. Many thanks!-Tiger
