|Zebras being born|
This newest round of puppets has a simple basic body. I cut out a thick rectangle and then add the face and other elements to create a specific kind of animal.
My puppets are made without patterns. On rare occasion, I might do sketching to see different ways to create the animal, however, my usual way is to free hand cutting out the pieces. I think of it as 3-D sketching and illustration.
I like to make multiples of each animal, this allows me to make changes and try different things. Since I have many young, and young at heart, friends - I know that each puppet will go to a good home.

|Gift Created for a Little Friend|
I like to give myself quantity assignments. They prompt me to try things.
So far, I've made: panthers, squirrels, dogs, cats, mice, zebras, horses, giraffes, elephants, deers, pigs, lions, lionesses, bats, donkeys, butterflies, frogs, elephants...and my personal favorite, rabbits.
I'm also creating puppet purses.
