I'm dying my third batch of fleece, which fortunately has turned out much more even than my second attempt. I need to divide what I've got to give some to my daughter who is also attempting some puppet building. I was wondering if there was a good rule of thumb for how much fleece an average hand/rod puppet uses? I mean a human size head with arms maybe a foot long each and the body, maybe another foot? Anybody have any ideas on this? I know I'll learn it on my own after a few puppets, but I need to do some parting out tomorrow so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Most patterns I've used suggest 1/2 to 3/4 yards. When dying fabric I like to designate a full yard in case I mess up on something or I need to make a alteration or repair.

Thanks, Billy. I was thinking about a yard per, exactly for the same reason.
