Welcome to Puppets and Stuff,  we would love to know more about you.  I am sure the gang will be along soon to give you more ideas.

I have one link that I am sure will give you a great start or idea on making a hand in mouth style puppet.

I am not sure if you are looking for a person, monster or animal style of puppet?  Maybe you can give us a better idea of what you want then we can help you better with pattern ideas.

You can also look at many of the members here that make and sell puppets as well as looking on eBay.

Hope this helps and look forward to getting to know you better.

welcome to the gang...there's warm cookies on the mantle and cold milk in the first intro to building puppets was first: the foam book by drew allison and donald devet (find at amazon) and a kids book called "the muppets make puppets  by cheryl henson (it was my kids till their father got a hold of it !!!!!  

1. make sketches of your idea...

2. Go to any fabric store for material...foam you can get online or jo-ann's fabric...craft stores is where you can get things like eyes and hair, feathers, etc....

3. everybody here can send you to a link or two to get what you makes really good hand rods....

4. remember one thing patience and be creative....
