    I made the nose with a mechanism that makes him sniff.I made the fur pattern using masking tape over the head and cut out the pattern making it flat. It helps with making paterns for carved foam, and even thow only the cheeks and eye brows were carved I taped over the whole front side of the head, just to make sure.
    Thank you

    No, I'm not making him. I'm making a ground hog puppet. At the time I was wondering If I could make fur that way,but for this puppet I buoghte fur,and this puppet, due to the amount of money It takes it will now be a regular puppet,and I'm hoping to make the next one ''life size''.
    Thank you

    I got my fabric samples in the mail today.The fur there is amazing and does not shead at all. The fur is so soft, but I got my fabric at Joans Fabric because of my budget changing.On the next puppet I make I hope to use there fur.
    Thank you

    Just a tip. Whenever I wear my friend's full bodied puppets, he always gives my an ice pack to put on my chest. The built in fans don't cool you off as much, but the ice keeps you cool the entire time.
