CRAFTS: How To Make… Laurie the lion finger puppet

July 21, 2013

What you will need:

  • 10 x 20cm piece of felt in orange
  • 8 x 8cm piece of felt in red orange
  • 7cm piece of orange ribbon
  • Black felt tip pen
  • Fabric glue or a needle and thread
  • Scissors

1. Print off the template above and cut out the pieces (or trace them so that you can use the printout again)
2. Using your special templates, cut out of the felt:

  • 2x Laurie’s body (front and back) in yellow felt
  • His mane in orange felt
  • His face and 2x ears in yellow felt

3. Glue Laurie’s mane so it covers the top half of the front side of the body
4. Glue Laurie’s face onto the orange mane
5. Using the black felt tip pen draw two eyes, a capital Y for a nose and mouth, and a few dots for whiskers.
6. Cut the orange ribbon in half and fold in half again and glue each ribbon end to the inside of his front and back – these are his arms
7. Glue or sew around the side and top edges of the inside of Laurie’s body (the bit you can’t see, it lets you hide all the messy bits) but make sure you leave the bottom edges free
