RCC Day 2 – Muslim doll finger puppet

Felt Muslim doll finger puppet DIY (28)

The size of the doll is slightly short of 4 inches.

I drew the pattern on paper and then traced it out on felt. I cut a 1 inch felt circle and mark places for eyes and mouth. I used small black beads for eyes (but one can do with googly eyes or just plain black thread) and red thread for mouth. 

I traced the face shape onto a slightly bigger red circle which I would use as a scarf, and I would cut a slightly smaller circle on the scarf and fit in on top of the face and glued both together.

Then I sewed together both red pieces of scarf using a blanket stitch, all the way through except the neck from where the stuffing will go in. I stuffed the face with stuffing and cut two felt shirts for body. I used two toothpicks and glued it inside the felt neck to keep it sturdy. The picture indicates where the toothpicks are glued INSIDE the shirt. and then i glued the hands on each sleeve.

I then inserted the neck inside the head and sewed it. Then I glued lace at the bottom and stitched the sides of the shirt.

 

The kid can then wear it on their fingers and have fun with it.
