Crayola Claytime (1982)

A "Crayola Claytime" shaped container held everything you needed to build your very own Kermit, Gonzo and Fozzie out of clay. The kit includes plastic heads, arms, and legs.

Using theses pieces you would shape the clay to build bodies for each of the characters. Also included are cardboard accessories such as Kermit's banjo, Gonzo's chicken and a guitar for Fozzie.

Vogue Costumes and Dolls Patterns (1982)

Vogue Patterns released these full body costumes for children and a clothing pattern for the Fisher-Price Miss Piggy dress-up doll as well.

Kermit Costume

This handmade Kermit costume involved a person's head looking through Kermit's mouth. His body is made of felt with a Styrofoam ball cut in half for the eyes. Flippers are kept on the hands and feet with elastic straps. This is a great Kermit costume and a good purchase if you come across these patterns.

Fozzie Bear Costume

Here's another full body costume pattern. Like Kermit, you would look through Fozzie’s mouth to see. The Fozzie costume pattern came complete with polka dot tie, and little brown fedora. From head to toe, you are covered in Fozzie's fur.

Animal Costume

The Animal costume is a little fierce and a lot of fun. Animal’s big head and expression are great facsimiles of Animal himself. Animal wears a vest, pants torn at the bottom, and sandals. Although the wearer provides "human" hands and feet, this is still a great looking costume.

Miss Piggy Costume

The Miss Piggy pattern included all the instructions for you to turn your child into Miss Piggy: an evening gown and gloves, a mask, and full accessories complete with purple eye shadow and golden locks.

Miss Piggy Doll Clothes

Vogue also released some clothes patterns to fit the Fisher-Price Miss Piggy dress-up doll. This set includes a ballerina outfit with shoes and tutu. Patterns are also included for a workout outfit.

Paintable Muppet Figurines (1982)

Fundimensions

This series included four Muppet figures that you could paint yourself. Each kit comes with a molded vinyl figurine, four fast-drying acrylic paints, brush and instructions.

This series includes: aMiss Piggy bank, Kermit playing the banjo, Gonzo in a canon, and Animal on a motorcycle.

Stained Glass Kits (1982)

These kits by Make It & Bake It feature a 4 inch metal frame to make stained glass sun catchers.

This particular one has Kermit with one out stretched hand and a rainbow in the background. Different colored beads come with the metal frame so that you can place them in the mold and then cook the stained glass in the oven.

On the package you can see the other three designs that were available: Miss Piggy as a cheerleader, Kermit playing a banjo, and Miss Piggy sitting in a crescent moon.

Paint-a-Patch Kit (1990)

Tulip Productions made this craft kit that included fabric patches depicting various Muppets. Patches can be painted and Velcro strips were included for fastening to your clothes. The set includes 16 fabric patches, paints and Velcro adhesive. This was a cool way to add a little Muppet style to your clothes.

The tin had Kermit pictured with paints on the front while Animal, Piggy, and Fozzie are inside on the tray.

Muppets Embroidery Designs (2001)

This set was released in 2001, but has a copyright date of 2000. It contains 23 designs: Kermit, Piggy, Animal, Gonzo, Fozzie, and Rizzo. The CD-ROM contains embroidery information for a variety of embroidery machines. Using a computer and embroidery machine hardware, one selects designs to download to a disk and place in an embroidery machine. The machine will then embroider the selected Muppet design.

This is the only Muppet machine embroidery program available. It allows one to embroider the designs an unlimited number of times (where as a store bought patch can be used on one item and many other arts and crafts kits are limited).
