Hi Buck Beaver, thank you for updating the link. I am new to puppet making and I also live on a very remote island in the middle of the South Pacific...it is not easy ducking off to the general store to buy products. But to get on topic...I started making a puppet as in my Avatar and it wasn't something that I had thought out...just kinda happened while I was playing with some foam...but I have found that the easy way to get started is to browse the web and join forums...there is plenty of resources and information. I am in the process of building another puppet and that is thanks to Adam Krutingers (sorry if I spelt the name wrong) whom made a pattern using a hat...the biggest problem I have is that the video that Adam made refers to a second "Attaching the head to a body" which I can't find or was never made? Anyhow the upshot is that I have had to learn by doing and through frustration and perseverance we will get there.
