I started making puppets for my grandchildren because I remember loving to play with puppets when I was a young child. It is funny how some have no interest at all in them and others adore them.

I find that most children who love stuffed animals tend to enjoy puppets. Creative play is encouraged when they are with me and I get to babysit.

I have a workroom full of fabrics that were mostly used for upholstery and home decor purposes, leftover from when I was heavily into my sewing business. I made cushions and covers. These durable goods make good fabrics to use for puppets because children can cause a lot of wear and tear on things when they play.

I have also made puppets from used stuffed animals as shown with the hippopotamus puppet.

I have made many different kinds of things for creative play for kids but they are not all shown on my website. One most recent for our daughter’s Kindergarten classes were aprons (pictured below), hot pads (pictured below), table cloths, and soon some used dolls of mine I don’t need to be fashioned with new doll clothes.
