Cat Lovers Hop- Finger puppets

Hello everyone!
Today is a National Cat Day! And I am very excited to participate in Cat Lovers Hop  and  Janis has organized the hop to celebrate this wonderful day at Her Peaceful Garden. Tomorrow is the last day to participate. I don't have any pet animals, but I love them! This time I didn't make a card, I created finger puppets out of felt! I named my cat as Poosy and for a lion Prince!
To create them, I drew their shape on grey and yellow felt two times for front and back and then added ears, tail and stitched them leaving the bottom side open. Then I attached their legs. For the cat face, I glued eyes, nose and whiskers and for lion I glued a brown coloured felt hair around his face.
Isn't it a cool technique to make cute finger puppets and we can create a whole story of our own for dramatisation too! I used this technique many times when I was a teacher and my Kindergarten tiny tots really enjoyed the stories very much while dramatising through finger puppets!
Hope you like my different creation!

I would like to join in these challenges: I have used snippets of felt cloth in different colors

Oh! So sorry! The video is not working because of updated version, some features are not working and made me sad! I will try again later!

How sweet and clever to turn these cats into finger puppets! My little granddaughter's would get a kick out of something like this. I make them Christmas ornaments out of felt each year and this year's ornament may be a felt kitty now that I've seen these! Felt is a great medium for the cats already, because of the soft fuzziness!
