I need to take my sewing machine in for service. Unfortunately, that means I’ll be without it for a few days. So I was digging around in my sewing room trying to figure out what I can do while it’s gone… since I use it almost every day!

I came across this little finger puppet that I made a while back.

I called her a Love Bug, when I made her. Here’s her back, where you can see her little wings.

She is a combination of hand and machine sewing. And she’s even lined with a red-print fabric! After thinking about it, I wondered if I could make something similar from felt.

So I made her a couple of friends.

I think I almost like the felt better, because their “smiles” are even cuter!

Here’s what the backs look like.

I bet if you wanted to try making some yourself, you can figure it out without a pattern. Just trace around your finger, grab some felt, fire up your imagination and go for it!
