The Goat


The next story book puppet is a goat with a drum.  The puppet itself didn't take long to make, but I spent some time thinking and planning beforehand! If I made it again, I'd make his face a bit smaller, but that's a minor point, not enough to make me redo it. The horns are made from handmade felt. I puzzled for a while to work out how to sew them on at the right angle. The drum is made from a pill bottle. The student teacher will paint it to resemble the picture in the book. 


  1. I look forward to seeing your puppet finished, you have so many talents

  2. Your puppet is great. Warm memories come to my mind. My mother also sewed puppets for stories a long time ago.

    1. Oh that’s interesting. I could do with tips from her!

  3. Horny fellow this (apologies for crass joke) !!!!
