My brother (who is 27, ha ha) loves weird puppets so I decided to try and make one for him this past Christmas. I got the idea for this one from this book, but in the book it wasn't designed as a puppet. It's a soft doll named "Patricia" (hilarious). It took me days to just mentally figure out how to convert it into a puppet, and every drop of brain power while I was sewing it all together. Really, I had to close my eyes sometimes and think HARD! But it worked. Good thing you can't see the details in the stitching because they are pretty bad in spots. But hey, it was so much fun to watch my brother open it on Christmas...he just laughed and laughed.
