Intro: How to Design HandPuppets
Make do with household items, to designa unique puppet!
 http://www.youtube.com/user/nostringspuppetsThe fabric I used for the puppets here is EVA. Its a strong, soft, lightweight foam,similar to foam used in camping mats. (I got a 4 metre piece for $6.)The more v-shaped slits you cut, you will come upwith an egg head shape.
Step 1 : Choose head shape
I cut out small paper circles "thumbnail sculptures" thenexperimented with designing head shapes.

The chin shape will be half the size of thetop half of the head.
Step 2: Lining the Head
&
Chin
Cover the top half of head with fleece. Line inside withlightweight fabric and outside with fleece, or terry toweling, oreven an old quilt. Fleece is great because it doesn't fray. I usedinvisible thread to sew the fleece to the EVA foam.
Image Notes
1 . V cut to fit hand more comfortablySew all the cuts with polyesterthread. You could use cement
glue, but I think I don’t like the
 smell of the cement.Make the chin in the same wayas head top.
