Hand Puppets in-the-hoop

Updated: Apr 3


piggy hand puppet

These simple in-the-hoop hand puppets can be made from any fabric using your embroidery machine. I like them with fleece and quilters cotton prints.  But terry cloth or felt look great too.  What would you do with them?

  • Make a set for a baby shower? 

  • Task the kids to create a puppet show? 

  • Why not make a bath puppet for yourself to serenade in the shower? 

It's none of my business what you make - just have some fun with these new designs. 😁

They are one of the easiest in the hoop projects to make! They are good practice if you're learning applique because the satin border stitches are thick - to cover up your cutting boo-boos.
