Monsters Inc Finger Puppet Tutorial

Do you have a Monsters Inc. fan in your life?  These Monsters, Inc. felt finger puppets, are sure to bring a smile to their face.

To make your very own Mike Wazowski finger puppet.

Gather the following material:  felt (green, white, black, white), green thread and needle and glue.

Using the pattern below, cut all your felt pieces out.

On the front piece, glue the mouth first, then the teeth and finally the lip (just below the teeth).  Next glue your eye into place, starting with the white, blue and lastly the black (I added a green eyelid).

Grab the back piece and line it up behind the front piece.  Insert the 2 horns between the front and back piece.  Using your needle and thread do a running stitch starting where the left leg meets the body all around to where the right leg meets the body.  Leave the bottom of the body unstitched.  Finally, glue the arms together.

To make your own Sully Finger Puppet...

Gather the following supplies:  felt (2 shades of blue, black, white, gray, purple), blue thread and needle and glue.

Using the pattern below, cut out the felt pieces that make up Sully.

Start by gluing the eyes, nose and mouth to Sully's head.  Cut circles out of purple felt and glue them to both arms and feet.  Glue 3 claws onto each arm and 2 onto each foot.

Grab the back of Sully.  Glue the arms about an inch down from the top.  Place the horns between the head and the back and glue into place, positioning the head over the arms, matching up against the back of Sully.  Using your needle and thread, do a running stitch to secure the front of Sully's body to the back of his body.  I also stitched the feet onto the front of Sully's  body.  Leave the bottom of Sully unstitched.

And, there you have a set of Monsters, Inc. Finger Puppets.

  2. Oh my little guy like Monsters Inc. but I love it. I've been trying to get him to say Mike Wazowski lol. Fabulous finger puppets Amy. They are SO cute!!

  3. Very authentic looking characters!!! So does Grace put on finger puppet shows?? Those gnomes kill me, hehe

  4. You make it look so easy but I'm sure I would find a way to screw it up. Adorable!

  5. I could never get enough of your finger puppets. I find them so impressive especially those small details!! And I absolutely love that you have a stand for them. :)

  6. I love all of your finger puppets! You do such amazing work! I'm always so impressed! :)

  7. I love the detail you put into them. I mean, the lip on Mike Wazowski? You're so clever. it really does look so much better than it would without the lip! And the dangling feet and arms kill me. My niece's favorite character, which makes me laugh, is Randall. She used to play Randall.
