Use felt, buttons, or thread to add some fun facial features and make your puppet unique.
Test out the mechanism by opening and closing the puppet's mouth. If it gets stuck/won't open properly, you might have sewn the felt too tight or blocked the hinge. Open up your seams and adjust as needed.
I’m working on making an updated version using a card that you can record your own sound into. It would be fun to place the record button in the puppet’s ear and maybe have some light up eyes too.
