    Sorry, I have to watch them without sound, I missed that part. Though I think there were a few spots where he did show up on the table briefly? Would have loved to see him done... :)

    Oh you will see him complete :) I just didn't have footage of attaching the fabric to the mouthplate. :)

    I'm working on making these videos Closed Caption for those without speakers or for the hearing impaired. I'm slowly working on the first video in the series and adding some text each time I'm on.
    Can't promise I'll get the whole thing done ASAP but my goal is to have it complete.

    Ha, thanks, that would help! My laptop is pretty fried, so I just pay close attention and pray for the best!

    Meant to ask, do you always use wood for the mouth plate?

    does anyone know what pattern pieces come in the Rotondo pattern? I looks like just the head pattern.

    The Rotondo Pattern contains the same pattern parts as all the Project Puppet patterns. You get what you need for the head, neck, body, arms, and hands. Of course the fleece head covering isn't included unless you decide to order that part.

    Does anyone know if The Forma Trio includes Fleece head cover?

    No. You have to buy the fleece head cover patterns separately.

    I have a question about this. Would you do it with somethng like muslin? I could understand that for working out the skin but is there a way to test using the pattern on the foam?

    I would use something like a cheap fleece (like from Joann's). That way, it will have the same stretch as the real fabric, if not the same seam-hiding properties (although it does work pretty well if sewn properly).

    You can usually pick up fleece for about $5/yard. You can make a puppet out of less than a yard. You may even find something usable in the remnant fabrics.

    I get their remnants all the time, usually just short of a yard and half price!

    Okay I have another question. I'm trying to expand my puppet designs (so far I've been able to do mainly something that looks like someone from sesamea street kind of look) I was wondering if anyone had any patterns or any suggestions for making puppets that look more like a stuffed animal kinda of version? I know that people have shown that you can basically take a stuffed animal, unstuff it and then put your hand in it. But if I wanted to make my own does anyone have any pointers for where to start?

    Take a look at Julie's work at outoftheboxpuppets.com. She does some fantastic ones.

    Thanks Goochman.

    You guys should check out the newset Project Puppet sale. They're having a sale on Patterns, 15 percent off if you spend $50 and 25 percent off for $100 throug the end of May.
    There was also something in their newsletter about getting a pattern made by Terry Angus, and a bunch of other stuff through the Puppetsmith website. But I can't seem to find details on the actually Project Puppet website.
