Crochet Tutorial: Great White Shark Hand Puppet

Crochet Tutorial: Great White Shark Hand Puppet

Queue Jaws Theme Song to set the stage for my “Fin-tastic” Great White Shark Hand Puppet!! I tend to get carried away with “waves” of creativity during Discovery Channel’s Shark Week designing and sharing “jaw-some” things shark related. I decided to “sink my teeth” into a great idea and make this fun puppet creation!


Shop Red Heart, America's Favorite Yarn

Get creative with these puppets. Children and adults will love the inventive ways to use these puppets that allow imagination to grow!! They provide hours and hours of fun! Make a pair to create shark mittens! There is definitely something fun about walking about in winter with two sharks on your hands! LOL!!

Crochet Tutorial: Fawn Mask

For anyone who has a little one who loves to play dress up, this fawn is so fun to expand their imagination! Just in time for Easter, these are perfect for masquerade play, character building, and pretend activities! Great for many occasions!!! The possibilities are endless! I was inspired by a link I saw on Pinterest and thought these would be fun in crochet. These would make great learning tools for kids, teaching them drama, acting, and role play! It’s great for schools, small play groups! Someone on Facebook mentioned these would be great for children’s hospitals. They are easy to wear and comfortable!

Crochet Tutorial: Scientist Amigurumi

I “periodically” get inspiration from everyday things for these crochet love notes. I get a “sine” that an idea might work, and then I start to “planet.” Some of these are “sodium” funny, I have slapped my “neon” a couple of occasions! The “gravity” to make these puns epic is “multiplied” by the fact that I’m running out of “time.” I’m trying to finish them at the “speed of light.” I have plenty of “energy” to keep these going for a couple more days! No “matter” what, through everything, you know my love for this is “constant,” but right now, I’m going to take a break and have a piece of “Pi.”
