One set of finger puppets went off to Brisbane and the other identical set went off the Bangkok. Now that they have arrived safely at their destinations I can share the photos with you without spoiling any surprises on the other side of the Indian Ocean.
Each child had one finger puppet in each pocket. Either a frog and a dog
or a fox and an owl.
I found an overwhelming number of ideas by searching for 'finger puppets' on Pinterest and also on Google Images. Although I bookmarked a number of interesting sites, I don't seem to have made a note of which ones inspired these. I will gladly credit the source if you can let me know where they came from.
Till next time, happy stitching!
