Hi everyone, My name is Lesley and I found this forum while I've been searching for a puppet pattern. Everyone here seems nice and friendly and helpful and I thought that it would be a good place to ask for some advice. I've been making cloth dolls for quite some time, so I feel quite at home with needles and threads and sewing machines, but I've been wanting to try a puppet for a little while now and have decided its about time that I took the plunge! Project Puppet is the only place that I can find with patterns, but I'm a little confused at what to go for and wondered if anyone could help? I think that I would quite like to try a monster, and so I thought I would go for the Mostro. However, I came across some online tutorials from a man making a monster from the Roly pattern. I wonder if anyone here had some experience of those patterns and could maybe recommend which one I should begin with? Is there one maybe a bit more versatile or comprehensive than the other? Or is there another pattern supplier out there, other than Project Puppet? Ooh, also - would you know of anywhere online that I can purchase some funky fur for my monster? I live in the UK and I can't seem to find anything here Any help at all that you could give me would be fantastic, and very much appreciated. Thank you! Lesley.
