Olaf Finger Puppet Pattern

Thanks so much for all your kind comments on the Olaf Valentine’s Day Printables I shared with you the other day.  I am so glad you guys loved them.  I have gone on a little work trip to a conference that I will share a little bit about with you a bit later on, so I was unable to answer emails and questions, but I am catching up as soon as I can.

While I am catching up, I wanted to share with you the Olaf Finger Puppet Pattern that I promised you.  You can use these in place of the paper Olaf I shared in the Olaf Valentine Printable…or you can just make one for you kids (or yourself) to play with.

I have one more Olaf Valentine idea coming…so be sure to stick around and see what that one is like!  I couldn’t stop myself because Olaf is just too cute…right?!

Materials needed:

white felt

black felt

brown felt

orange felt

2 google eyes

3 black mini pom poms (optional)

Hot Glue Gun

Black Sharpie Fine

1.  Cut out the pattern pieces according to the directions on the printable pattern.

2.  Cut out the left and right arm.  Glue to the front of the back body piece on the middle section.  Do this so that the arms will go inside the finger puppet and the front body piece will go over the top of them.

3.  Place glue around the sides and the top of the front piece and the back piece of the body and glue them together.  Be sure to only glue around the edges and NOT glue along the bottom.   This is so you make a hole for the finger puppet.

4.  Glue the cheeks, mouth and teeth to the Olaf.

5.  Take the nose and put a thin line hot glue down one side of the long part of the triangle nose.  Roll the nose into a cone shape and hold while the glue sets.  Be super careful not to burn yourself with the HOT glue gun.

6.  Glue the google eyes onto the top of the cheeks and glue the nose right below them in the middle of the cheeks.

7.  Glue the black mini pom poms on for the buttons or cut the buttons out of black felt and glue in place.

8.  Draw the lines to separate the body (head, middle, bottom and the feet and to draw on his eye brows.

Star Wars Finger Puppets 4 wm

I have been so excited to share with you my latest creation…Star Wars Finger Puppets!!  I had so much fun making these and my two boys were eager to fill my head with all sorts of Star Wars Trivia.  They helped me to come up with the outfit choices for each character to make sure I had them just right.    Part of the reason I am so excited about them is that they are for BOYS…and of course girls too!  But most of the time the projects I share are geared toward little girls since my youngest three are…well…girls!

Star Wars is STILL as popular as it was when I was growing up.  And my husband is a huge Star Wars fan…me?  Well, I have seen almost all of the movies…but can’t remember much about them after the original Star Wars.  So my boys and husband were a big help with this project.

Anyone else have any big  Star Wars fans?

Well, these Star Wars Finger Puppet Patterns are now available for sale in The Idea Room Store.

The patterns are colored and have step by step instructions so that you can make your own to look just like the ones in the pictures.

Heart Felt Pillow

I have been floored at how many of you have made your own amazing versions of the heart felt wreaths! It has been fun to visit all of the links you have shared with me! Thank You!

I had some felt that I needed to find a purpose for from my Studio 5 appearance. So I decided to make a pillow using the same technique with the folded circles. (Sorry about the bad picture, it is the best I could do…we need some sunshine around these parts).

It took about the same amount of time as the wreath. I did not need as many circles and instead of using a 3 inch circle, I used one that was 2.25 inches.

My pillow insert measured 12 x 16 inches. So I cut 2 peices of fabric for the pillow cover measuring 14 x 18 inches.

I then took one peice of fabric and drew a heart that would be the outline for shaping my heart. Then I simply sewed each circle onto the pillow. One. At. A. Time! I know what you are all thinking! That I am crazy. But it was really relaxing and it was a good excuse for me to sit down and watch movies. I don’t sit down and veg much so it was kind of nice. Plus…the weather here has been cold and dreary.

Then, when you finish, place the right sides of your fabric together and sew a 5/8 inch seam around the edge and leave an opening on one whole side. Turn inside out, insert pillow and then hand sew along the edge. (Or you can make the back into 2 overlapping peices so that the cover can be removed).

I really like how it has turned out. My kids, however, thought it was a waste of a pillow. Apparently the felt ruffles are not comfortable to lay on! Sweet music to my ears. The pillow might actually stay on the couch!!
