How to make finger puppets: Princess
April 22, 2012 by Olha
This is a photo tutorial for Princess. She wears a dress and a tiara, and her hair is done. The pattern is here.
This is a dress.
With contrast colour, pick up 12 stitches from the inside of the dress, 4 on each needle.
Work the neck and the head.
Insert a small piece of cotton ball for head stuffing.
Using tapestry needle, thread tail through remaining stitches and pull tight.
Weave in loose ends.
To make hair, wrap the yarn around the back of her head by threading it with a tapestry needle through 6 stitches on each side of her face.
Cover the top of her head in the same manner.
Her tiara has a headband shape made of 7 chain stitches.
Her eyes are made with 2 short basting stitches.
(Scary, I know). It’s just a simple duplicate stitch that forms her mouth.
See, she is smiling!
