This past week I’ve been busy whipping up a special order for an Eco conscious company in Ontario!
I was asked to make a few farm themed hand puppets and a couple of other eco themed items. I quickly jumped at the opportunity and started looking for patterns.
We landed on a farmer girl hand puppet, a rooster and raven puppet as well as a globe and a head of lettuce.
Having never made hand puppets before, this was really fun for me.
I could see myself making more of these in the future if the opportunity comes up again.
My favorite piece to make was the globe (however UN-geographically correct it may be!) and I learned a new technique of color work. It was also really fun seeing how cute the world is with a smile 🙂
I took a few creative liberties with the original patters, which worked out great in the end. The braids and a hat were added to the farmer girl and I created the red pieces for the rooster drawing from my inventory of crochet stitches that I know.
The lettuce turned out to be life sized which I thought was hilarious. I can picture the kids throwing this around like a football.
Overall this was a great commission project and I hope to have more like this in the future.
See you next time, thanks for reading.
