    I was wondering if any one would happen to know how to successfully build a Kermit puppet. what materials might be used
    and is there a simple pattern for making his head and body. if any one has had success in building a kermit like puppet or a recreation of one I would love to see pics of it, and any info on how to go about building my own kermit puppet. Any information about it would be very very helpful. Thanks

    Hi there, I have a pic of a custom made kermit puppet made by Ben and Keeter puppets. They just finished it. I can email it to you if you want to see it, just let me know. I am currently planning out my plans to make a kermit also. Let me know how it goes for you.

    Same thing here. Doesn't work for me either. It would seem that either you have been phased out, or there is a problem with the physical link given.

    I took my Kermit doll and cut it open, pulled out the stuffing, and stuck my hand up there....It worked, but it's not such a good idea. :)

    I too am trying to work on making a Kermit puppet, I have done a search and all I have found was a head pattern, is there a pattern some where here for the rest of the body?
    If so, can someone please post the link?

    just to clarify for everyone , the head pattern that is out there is from aToy, it will make a serviciable kermit like puppet , but you are not going to find the actual kermits patterns, they are not availible to the General Public, but the pattern you do find will make a fine puppet and it will be a great learning tool for alll of you trying to make you own puppets, good luck to you all

    Do you have any suggestions for tweeking the Fisher Price head pattern to make it better and a little more accurate?

    IE.. Make the whole head bigger, Add a little here, take away a little there, make this bigger, change this area on the mouth, ETC...

    Just looking at it, as well as the puppet, I'd say it's pretty accurate if you scale it up about 125-150% and elongate the neck. After the pieces are sewn together you should be able to figure out how long the neck's supposed to be based on reference pictures.

    I have a really small hand and I know that the FP Kermit never had enough neck room when I'd try to use it.
