Finger Puppets, in progress.

A few months ago my 11 year old started talking about how he wanted to make some puppets similar to the Harry Potter Puppet Pals guys, only with Zelda characters. I said sure, we could do that. And then I forgot about it.

But then the other day he came to me with a drawing and also a bunch of felt that he had found in my stash, said he'd decided he wanted finger puppets instead, and asked me to get to work.

Just as I finished cutting out all of the pieces for Link, my 7 year old walked by and said, "Oh, are you making our Link puppets now?"

wait...

"our?"

As in, "I want my own set?"

yep. Of course. OF COURSE! duh, mom.

So I'm hand stitching TWO Link finger puppets. Then we move on to Princess Zelda herself. Then, I get to do 6 more Link characters (two each, mind you) in red, blue and purple. From some game called Four Swords. (4 swords, 4 costumes. Naturally)

And though I'm feeling all, "I'm such a nice mom" about the whole thing, it really is nice to be crafting again after a crazy long hiatus. The last thing I did was my comic con dress in July. ... just before I found out I was pregnant and started spending my days on the couch and bathroom floor. So yes, lots of reasons to be glad that is over!
