Here is my second homemade Christmas gift! It's the Puppet Theater from The Little Things To Sew Book. It was on my list last year but I was unable to get to it until, well until last week. I really was beginning to wonder if I would have enough time to make and finish it this year but I did!
I made it for Prince C but I am very sure that all the kids will use it. Prince C is a tad short to reach the puppet theater curtains at the moment. I am sure he'll grow into it. : )
On his I copied an idea from this Puppet theater, love it! I made Prince C his own label complete with Charlie and Lola. I had to add them for when I was sewing this I kept thinking this reminded me of their house. Can you here the two of the giggling?!? I plan on making Prince C Charlie and Lola puppets after the Holidays and birthday season is over.
I used scraps of Children at play scraps for the flowers on the window boxes and a old brass button for the door knob. The button is a special button for my grandmother. : )
I did have to sew this with Sweet pea and little man watching to get it done but the good news is that he really, really loves it! I had to pry it from his hands with him screaming "mine, give back!" at me.
The other great part? It's #12 from the Little Things to Sew book Challenge! Yippy!
Tomorrow I share the puppets and puppet bags,
Until then Happy Sewing!
