    Thank you so much for these finger puppet patterns. We make them for our local hospital here in White Rock, BC, Canada. The nurses & carers use them for the young children who come in for shots and are a little frightened – you have no idea how these puppets take their little minds off the injection – thank you so much!!!

      If you have an iPad open the page in Safari and choose upload where there should be an option to save as PDF or email it to yourself and save it from there.

    This pattern is beautiful, thank you for sharing.

    Do you have listed anywhere the instructions for the accessories for the other figures, in particular, the hats?

    Thank you.
