Lovely Morgan at Swansea Bay Yarns asked me a little while ago if I could help a customer with a special birthday gift for her teacher daughter-in-law. I was tasked with creating a set of finger puppets to accompany the book ‘Frog Finds a Friend’ by Max Velthuijs – a book well-loved in the school where the recipient teaches.
It was quite a challenge working out not only how to construct each animal but also how to line and stuff the inside of each puppet. Several weeks later with lot of trial and error, I’m happy to say I delivered the finished project to the shop this week. They have been very well received by the customer and I really hope her daughter-in-law likes them!
