3 patterns in 1 for sewing classic wool felt Waldorf table puppets. Finished puppets can be used for storytelling, puppet shows and child's play. Designed by Ronna McEldowney years ago for kindergarten teachers, this 9-page pattern is for 3 dolls (small, medium and large) ranging in size from 7 inches to 9-1/2 inches tall. The body is cylindrical, the cotton knit head is round (not formed) and the hands emerge from the folds of the cape. Includes some ideas for customizing your dolls as well.
Note, these patterns are in a simple format with line drawings. Materials not included. Please order them separately.
"If a child is allowed to play with these puppets without the sense that he is performing for the surrounding adults, then it is possible for him to unlock the treasures in his being." Ronna McEldowney
