Auntie Janice and I usually make homemade Christmas crackers. I'm not sure how it started, but this year I got the girls to decorate the crackers at the cottage in August so we felt very organized.
Brendan suggested that I make finger puppets as the main favour. One thing led to another and I soon found myself having way too much fun with felt, glue, googly eyes and a bit of thread (I opted to sew in the vain hope that the puppets will last a bit better). Every time I finished a new puppet, Elizabeth and Janice declared that they wanted to keep it. Brendan thinks I should make some extras and perhaps I might get inspired to do so at some point....
I posted a few pictures of Elizabeth playing with many of the puppets on Christmas Day, but here are pictures of the complete set!

17??? How can 17 be a full set? You certainly will have to make a few more... ;)

You don't have a cat or a dog... or even a cow for Brendan!
However, these are super adorable and I particularly love the sheep.
