I've been thinking of creating a generic puppet pattern that would be good for beginning puppet builders to use and at the same time offer more skilled puppet builders a good starting point. Well a friend has nudged me from merely thinking to doing.
I have been asked to build a puppet for a friend that is an elementary school teacher. She has left the design entirely up to me and I have decided to take this as an opportunity to create the pattern for the generic puppets. Hopefully in the next few weeks you'll be able to check back and see the results of this puppet build and it won't be too long after that that I will be offering the pattern.
Just to warn you though there will be a small cost if you wish to get a pattern for yourself. This way I'll be able to come up with some money to cover all the puppet projects I'm dreaming of. I haven't figured out all the particulars yet but we'll keep you posted as things progress.
