I would love to share it with you guys but as it's a commission I will have to hold off until all four are done and they go off to their new home. I am happy with it though and am half way through puppet two, which is probably going to prove to be the easiest of the four.
Apart from learning how to make a pattern and some construction tips this process has also taught me that the creative design process actually takes a lot longer than I thought. Which all means I am definitely undercharging on my self designed items. I did suspect this, but hadn't paid much attention to it before. Not very professional but then I do this because I enjoy it. I also don't think people would pay the full cost if I did charge it. How do you work your prices out? I would be interested in your thoughts and advice.
And just because I like to have at least one picture in a post, here is a little felt owl from a kit on Simply Homemade magazine (he is called Pikelet) alongside a couple of fish made for a Feeding of the 5000 puppet sketch.
