Is it a puppet? Is it a purse? No - it's both!
This PDF sewing pattern, for both hand or machine stitching, enables you to make the super cute Animal Puppet Purse. The puppet purse incorporates a small, snap closed purse (wallet), where children can put their pennies. Then un-snap and it turns into a hand puppet - a bear (or polar bear), pig, rabbit, mouse or cat. With the addition of an optional strap, it can be hung round the neck or strung over a shoulder. It's the perfect, unique gift that children will adore!
The pattern contains 3 sizes: small - for children up to age 5 approx, large - for age 6 to 9 approx, extra large - age 10 and over
Materials needed: felt or fleece, buttons for eyes etc, ribbon for strap (optional), embroidery thread (hand sewn version) and a small metal snap fastener.
Rated as Beginner+ as it's easy to make. However, some of the pieces, like the nose, are a bit fiddly to sew on the machine - you can easily hand sew them though!
