Flannel Friday: Jungle Puppets!

I finished up another set of finger puppets from Floral Blossom’s Etsy shop! I cannot say enough nice things about Widia’s patterns. This is my THIRD set and I’ve still got two more sets purchased and waiting to be sewn!

I will be using these during Letter Z storytime, to act out this song:

Song & Puppets: “You Can Hear” (Tune: She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain)
You can hear the lions roaring at the zoo, ROAR! ROAR!
You can hear the lions roaring at the zoo, ROAR! ROAR!
You can hear the lions roaring, you can hear the lions roaring
You can hear the lions roaring at the zoo! ROAR! ROAR!
(Elephants trumpeting, zebra braying, monkey eeking)

I have a second set of jungle animals that I need to finish up, but I’ve got a while until Letter Z!

      I did — I’m scheduled all the way through mid-June and completely forgot about the closing part! Thanks for reminding me!

    Aaaaw! I love all your different finger puppets! They are so adorable! I really need to find some time to make some. :o)

    What are the other sets that you have? How long does it take you to sew the set?

      I have a farm set and dog set completed. I have another jungle set cut and ready to be sewed, as well as patterns for the woodland creatures and cats in my file folder. Each puppet is about a thirty to forty minute process, but I think I’m getting faster as I practice more!

      I know, I know. But I do not have the time to make more sets really. Also, these ones I couldn’t sell because the pattern is only for personal use anyway.
