    Thanks for posting a link to those feathers, Bezalel! Also, what grand prizes you've offered.

    I ordered my pattern a little while back and look forward to getting it in. I love your patterns.

    I have all the Project Puppet Patterns. These are great patterns, reasonably priced and They are great people to work with. I don't frequent here often but stick my head in from time to time.

    Inside The Cube Plot Figured out

    I Finally figured out the Plot of My Show. it's a combination of Sam and Friends and The Land of the Gorch Segments on Sturday night Live. The Running of this show is like The Muppet Show. the puppets I Will Hopefully Make will lyp-synch to songs and comedy Audio, and Various TV Show Episodes. I will also pay Tribute to the classic sketches from Jim Henson's Early Days of the Muppets. This Show came from the Inspiration Of My favorite TV Shows Brandy and Mr. Whiskers, Catscratch, Spongebob Squarepants, and Family Guy.

    Kuriboh, the contest is now! Project Puppet is accepting submissions through May 28, 2006.

    Puppetise, The Forma Series patterns will stay as is, for now. The great thing about the Glorified Sock Puppet Pattern is that it was small enough to be printed on regular-sized paper from a home computer. The Forma Series patterns are larger in size and would not print easily. We considered all sorts of work around solutions, but none were as simple as just mailing out the full-sized pattern sheets. We will definitely have more of both types of patterns coming out in the future.

    Thanks for the support, bdfuller!

    Just to clarify, is it one submission per person?

    I'm going to start a separate thread announcing the contest. Hope that's alright Foz. :)

    Sewing is a lot harder than I thought, and a lot more time consuming.
    A $300 puppet doesn't seem that expensive anymore. I'm glad we have lots of time!

    Yes mrhogg, one submission per person. That means make ten puppets and send in the best one. :crazy:

    I'm making a bunch of them for my show, so I was hoping I'd get to deluge you with submissions. :)

    just curous if after we submit them to you can we post pictures of them here or on our websites also?
  17. bezalel

    That was a tough question, video567. Since the judges are all members of MC, I guess it would be preferable if you didn't until after the ten finalists are chosen. But I can't tell you what to do. :)

    Basically, by not posting pictures it would keep the contest more fair for everybody. I do have confidence that the judges will be impartial in their decisions even if they know who a puppet belongs to. If you do decide to post pictures of your submission before the judges have chosen the finalists, your entry will not be disqualified, as it breaks no contest rules.

    Good question video567. :)

    About the pattern, when printing, is 100% enough for a regular adult hand or do i have to enlarge it? My own hands arn't big, nor small but just average...

    Wow, i am dyeing antron for the first time ever. I'm using the hottest tapwater, it is pretty hot. And i am uing my tup. Let's hope it doesn't pick up the dye tho, or my wife to be will be furious with me :o

    I am using a dye called nitor. I followed the instructions and let's hope it turns out good. It's being soaked right now.

    When i opened up that bag of antron i thought to myself, wow here is really a lot of this stuff. I am just using a fraction of it. There's enough for tons of puppets. It's about time i start using this stuff now. Well..wish me luck.

    Hey BorkBork, 100% should be good. It should be automatically set at 100%. I always dye antron in hot tap water - it should come out just fine!
