Ready to make another Minecraft finger puppet? Last time we made a great little Creeper felt finger puppet. Today we will be making the Enderman. The Enderman is my favorite Minecraft creature. He’s a little creepy (and isn’t it frustrating when he moves important blocks around?), but I think he looks so cool.
Missed out on the puppet from Monday?
- Black felt
- Black and purple embroidery thread
- Embroidery needle
- Pattern pieces – you can download them here
Use the pattern pieces to cut out the following from the black felt:
2 body pieces
8 arm/leg pieces
Stitch two purple squares to the front head piece for eyes. You can also use purple puffy paint for the eyes, if you’d like.
Stitch around the outside edge of the head pieces with black thread.
Stitch together arm and leg pieces so you end up with 2 arms and 2 legs.
Attach the legs to the bottom of your front piece (so they will be in the front when you put the puppet on).
Stitch the arms near the top of your front body pieces. You want them to be at a slight angle so they don’t stick straight out.
Stitch your front and back pieces together, leaving an opening at the bottom.
Attach the head to the top of the body
And he’s finished! Now our Creeper puppet from Monday has a friend.
Do you or your kids play Minecraft?
