I had so much fun making these guys! It was the first time since January I made puppets (our car was so packed for our road trip that I had to leave my box of supplies in Los Angeles).
I made these puppets for two babies coming in June. One is for my friend’s sister, the other is for my friend’s boyfriend’s sister. So they’re kinda cousins… who will probably never meet.
It’s pretty amazing to make something for a kid that hasn’t been born yet. So many possibilities go through my mind as I construct a toy that I hope will entertain them for years. Will they ever realize that before they were born, someone who never even met their parents and would probably never meet them spent a few hours wondering what their lives would be like?
Lots of friends are having babies right now, so I get to spend lots of time making special gifts for their mysterious lives. I’ll be posting a lot of those creations soon!
There are many traits they share. Both have yellow vinyl ears, pink colors, fringe, and tails to match the body of the other.
By the way, this is not foreshadowing my own future. I can enjoy spending time with kids without wanting one of my own.
These puppets are already at their new homes, but you can order your own puppet in my shop.
