Furry Orange Monster – Faux Fur Tips

Since my first puppet in January of this year I have learned a few more tips and tricks about puppet making. One tip was how to take ping pong balls and make them into puppet eyes, you can see the tutorial I made on that here. This Furry Orange Monster is my first puppet made out of faux fur and I am naming him Mr. Q. I promise to create many more puppets out of fur because I loved working with that medium. I did learn a few tips that I wanted to share with you on how to sew faux fur.
