    Has every aspect of puppet construction already been covered in this forum? I still love talking about different mechanics and new ideas but I think these new ideas are not so freely given up as more and more of us are making and selling our own line of puppets.

    I'm making a puppet according to the 3-piece head method from the foam book, and then I'll cover it in fleece. I'm trying to make a cute little girl and therefore, puffy cheeks are needed. Any ideas how to do this without hindering the mouth movement?

    First the mommy puppet and the daddy puppet who love each other very much go away to Bermuda for a week and when they come back, the mommy puppet feels ill every morning for about 9 months. Then they go to the hospital where doctor Bob tells bad jokes until the mommy puppet screams to the daddy puppet: "This is all your fault!" After several hours, mommy and daddy leave the hospital with a new puppet, and that's how you make a puppet.

    Make a sort of pork chop shape out of foam and glue it to the jaw line. obviously large side on top for the cheek. Use super 77 on foam and fabric to get fleece to attach them around the mouth. Hope this helps.

    Porkchop may not have been the most apporopriate choice of analogy for my project, but I get the point. Wht is 77? always just use hot glue for everything
