  3. Hi, thank you for sharing your patterns. I've started to make some puppets for shoe boxes etc...could you please tell me what yarn you used to the rabbit puppet in the middle - the large one with pink and white 'soft' yarn. I've been looking for it from my usual internet supplier but I can't see which yarn would make such soft result from a small picture. Many thanks, Laila

    1. Hi Laila
      Most of my yarn is oddments that I pick up from charity shops and often it doesn't have a brand, as in the case of the pink and white rabbit. I would suggest using something like Sirdar 'Snowflake' to get this result. Anything soft and fleecy would do.

  5. Thank you for these patterns, which I've just come across - they are perfect to help use up some of my stash. I don't like making soft toys because I can't get the stuffing right so these will be ideal to send out to South African orphans and the Syrian refugees.

    1. There is a pattern on the OCC website for a teddy bear puppet. http://www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk/knitting-patterns
      I knit mine slightly differently, maybe I'll get around to writing it up soon!

  9. These are wonderful puppets. Many thanks for sharing. I was wondering do you have a pig pattern. I am trying to adapt one of the bear patterns, but any help would be great. Thanks again. Janice

    1. Hi Janice, I don't have a pig pattern I'm afraid. I've been working on a lion pattern but I'm quite busy just now preparing for the OCC campaign, so writing it up will have to wait a while.

  10. I will keep an eye on your web site. I can't tell you how much fun I have had making your puppets. I can't believe I have never thought to make puppets before. Guess you are never to old to learn something new. The great thing is some one actually wants the puppets. It is win win all round. Many thanks again, and keep up the good work. Janice

  12. I love your patterns and have been meaning to try one for ages. I've just finished knitting the rabbit but am hesitating over sewing on the ears and embroidering the face. Any tips on how to get the features right on this and other projects please?

    1. I usually sew on the features after sewing up. It may seem counterintuitive but it helps to locate the features in the right position. After sewing up just slip your hand inside to avoid sewing right through to the back. Locate the centre of the face and position the eyes equidistant from it, leaving a gap of about 2 stitches in between.

  13. Thank you for these simple clear instructions. The hospital I work at is encouraging staff to knit and these puppets for the shoe box appeal and are ideal to pick up and put down (if you can) at there breaks. Just finishing this row is often heard.

  14. Thank you for this clear puppet pattern. At the hospital I work at we are encouraging staff to knit these puppets for the Christmas box appeal and have been asked that shoe boxes are not only for Christmas and the local church have asked for bunny puppets for Easter. What started out as stress relieve at break time (just finishing this row can often be heard) has really been taken to heart and now we have a puppet of the week competition!

    1. I love the idea that you give each other encouragement by having a competition. And it's good that they help your staff with stress relief. The more you knit, the more relaxing it becomes!
