You may know that i am first and foremost trained as a children’s book illustrator, though i’ve been focusing more on my felting projects in the past few years. It makes perfect sense that i should want to tap back into my storytelling roots – with finger puppets (which i’m calling “Finger Friends”)! I’m so excited to create a whole collection of finger puppet sets telling stories from folk tales to modern favorites. My first set tells the story of the 3 Little Pigs and their struggle with the Big Bad Wolf. Read the story aloud and ‘perform’ it as well with this sweet little felt puppets.
Other stories i have planned are: Little Red Riding Hood, 3 Billy Goats Gruff and 3 Blind Mice. I’m also thinking of doing some sets with Tasha Tudor (another beloved illustrator) and the Queen with their corgis.
Get the 3 little pigs Finger Friends here.
What story would YOU like to see felted into finger puppet form??
