Flannel Friday: Puppies!

I finished up another set of finger puppets from Floral Blossom’s Etsy shop! I cannot say enough nice things about Widia’s patterns. They are clear, crisp, and so easy to follow! And the kids just absolutely love these pieces.

Anyway, this week I made some puppies!

There’s a lot of rhymes that you can use with these, but the rhyme I plan to use is as follows:

Flannelboard/Fingerplay: “Five Little Puppies”
Five little puppies were playing in the sun. (Hold up hand, fingers extended.)
This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run. (Bend first finger.)
This one saw a butterfly, and he began to race. (Bend second finger.)
This one saw a pussycat, and he began to chase. (Bend third finger.)
This one tried to catch his tail, and he went round & round. (Bend fourth finger.)
This one was so quiet, he never made a sound. (Bend thumb.)

    Oh my gosh! These are too too cute!!! You did an awesome job ~ each one has their own personality. :o) LOL!

    Did you use French knots for their eyes? I never can get my French knots to work. :o(

      I did use French knots — it took me quite a few tried to perfect them!

    Katie, do you have a body template you use? If I wanted to try something similar, do I just trace around my fingers and make fabric allowances? Your felt creations are works of art, seriously.
