A “Childish” Birthday Gift

After spending a lot of time in front of my computer screens, I had to once again break the monotony and get crafty, and fortunately I had the perfect excuse. A close friend’s birthday was just around the corner and why not make something interesting. In this case, a handmade puppet based on one of her favorite persons: Donald Glover/Childish Gambino. It was my first attempt at a puppet, but fortunately all my experimentation and pseudo-patterning worked out in the end.

 

Materials Used: Felt, Yarn, Scrap Fabric, Yarn, Iron-On Transfers, Poly-Fil

Procedures: Sewing (Machine & Hand), Fabri-Tac, Pom-Pom Making, Accessory Fabrication (Printing/Design)
