I talked with Keann Brown who is the director for the construction zone at OWS. She has rewritten the instructions for the people puppet pattern. I just received mine. I know most of the people here at MCF don't care for OWS but I've heard that alot of it has been because of the complication in the instructions, and the look is far from high end. Still if your looking to get started in making a puppet or two and can't afford the materials or videos yet to make the better stuff then OWS people puppet pattern is the way to go for now. The cost of the pattern is $10 and shipping for that pattern brings the total cost to $16. Shopping around between JoAnn Fabrics and Walmart you can get all the materials you need to make a complete puppet for less than $25. And thats if you use polar fleece. Grand total to start will be $41 to get started. Not bad I think. I'm going to build a few just like the instructions say just so I completely understand them then start modifying from there. I want to learn "high end" just like the rest of you but this is a poor mans way to start and I'm just so happy that I'm finally gonna be able to start! I forgot to add that that revision to their pattern just came out this Monday. I havent completely read them yet.
