These puppets have been around almost a year now. My daughter and I first started making them in November of last year after my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. We took old socks and tights of my daughters that she couldn’t ware any more and stuffed them with fake snow. Buttons and such were used for the eyes. Every time someone came over I would have the help with a puppet and when we were done we ended up with about 20 of them. Some of them even went away to live with new owners who loved them so much;) The others stayed around to make an appearance at the variety show, Mabel’s Way Back Machine in August of the year. Some of them are now at Lenny and Me Home store on Milwaukee, adding a touch of whimsy to the MONSTERS CHASING CHILDREN exhibit. Who knows what else is in store for these puppets. They may travel the world! lol Well at least across Chicago.
