Pig Family Finger Puppets - PDF pattern/Instructions


Downloadable PDF patterns and instructions for making a whole family of little pigs with heritage toy appeal from boiled wool, felt, or fleece plus small scraps of fabric.

Dress them up yourself or make a whole batch of pigs and let your favorite kid(s) design their costumes and be part of the finishing touches. This is a great project for using up fabric and notion scraps.
