Old MacDonald had a Farm Puppets

As part of this year's handmade gift challenge, I made these Old MacDonald Puppets for Wyatt's third birthday. I got the idea and templates from this awesome craft blog Just Another Day in Paradise.
The puppets were seriously cute already so I didn't change much other than adding overalls and a straw hat on Old MacDonald himself.

I also added a zippered bag made out of some John Deere fabric to keep them all together. I'm really happy with how they turned out. I had so much felt I ended up making two matching sets. This way I'll have a gift ready to go on short notice. Next birthday is my baby Emmett, he's turning one at the end of May. I was thinking of making him a puppet set too since Wyatt doesn't share this one very well. Maybe safari animals, or a Canada set with a beaver, moose, polar bear, etc. What do you think? Any different animal group suggestions?


I get super excited whenever you leave a comment. Keep 'em coming!
