When I was little my mum played with a washcloth puppet to make bath time a fun time for me and my siblings. About a week ago my mum said she had found something very dear to her while cleaning the attick. She showed an old ragged hippo puppet, the washcloth from my childhood.
So... when I started thinking about a future project I immediately remembered the amount of washcloths I had lying around in my room (trust me I have a lot of them).
I donÂ´t know why but I made one similar to the hippo...and now that I've made that one I don't quite know what to do with it since I never even use washcloths... Luckily I'm 2 washcloths down XD
- 2 green washcloths (old or bought new)
- 1 pink piece of fabric or washcloth
- green embroidering thread (a darker shade of green than the washcloth)
Cut out two single circles, a pink one and a green one. Cut half a circle at the top of 1 green washcloth; this is going to be the body.
Turn the washcloth inside out and pin half of the green circle you just cut out onto one side of the body. sew pin side.
Fold the other half of the circle onto the part you just sewn.
place the pink circle on top of body circle and other half of green circle. sew.
turn inside out and place some stitches inside to shape head.
use the embroidering thread to make eyes and nostrils
