    WOW!! Great puppet of Sam, man! I need that!!

    I was planning to do some work on a Mahna Mahna and a Fozzie, but I think I'll never get a chance to with the necessity to begin rebuilding Muley and friends.

    You have some great puppet building talents; too bad you don't live near me, I could CERTAINLY use your help!!

    Great stuff, and congrats!

    Hey FOZ, thanks :)

    Muppetquilter, it's not the beak that was the problem, i didn't do any sewing on the beak, just glueing, cutting and tucking ;-)

    It's the lower jaw, look

    You see?

    Yah Yah, mon!

    I really REALLY do like that.

    Gee, I wish I had more time to tackle some projects like that. I still can't find time to work on comic strips or puppets either right now.

    Email me some pics of your Beaker and Sam if you can so I can show one of my friends what you've done.

    You've smashed my little Swedish Chef puppet I made myself!!

    The other kewl thing about my Chef puppet is that he doubles as a cranky old man when he's out of that outfit!! :D

    The picture links in the first post should now work for everybody. Let us know if you continue to have trouble pullling up the Beaker and Sam photos.

    Hiya...WOW! That Beaker is Really kewl!

    You should be able to find some kind of LabCoat at a toy store maybe in the Kids' costumes section if not by halloween this year! There may be other coats you can substitute as well.

    I need a Sam, though; one of the few voices I can do really decently.

    Very, Very well done on both Beaker and Sam. They are great. Keep it up

    Try running a gathering thread around the edge of the blue fleece before you tuck it under the red mouth part. That will encourage the fabric to take the shape you need and ought to help alleviate the bunching. If that doesn't work, I would try a combination of darts and the gathering thread (so that you have less fabric and it can't bunch).

    I wanted to rejuvenate this thread, so anybody who wants to make homemade puppets can do so.

    How can this thread help someone make homemade puppets? There's no puppet building information, and the links to the photos are all dead. Actually, this thread could stand to be locked or deleted because it's from 2 years ago even.

    Although, Bork Bork had some AWESOME photos of his AWESOME Beaker and Sam puppets, and I really would love to have had a Sam Eagle puppet!!

    Go ahead and close it. I see my mistake.

  17. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    It's no problem. But I can't close it. WISH we had some updated links though to show the puppets! They were AWESOME!!

  20. BorkBork

    BorkBork Member

    Thank You!!

    If you read the whole thread, it's in there :)

    If i were to make these charachter's today, i would go in a whole other direction with materials ;)

    Haha, so funny, this was maybe 2-3 years ago and there's some problems i had then that i have overcome. Real easy ones too hehe....You live and you learn
