#FlannelFriday: Winnie-the-Pooh & Beehive Hand Puppets

I made these puppets back in 2010. I used Lionbrand's free crochet patterns for a Bear Potholder and Beehive Potholder. I modified the patterns and left the bottom open so I could use them as hand puppets. When I first saw the patterns, I knew they would be perfect to tell chapter 1 (In Which We Are Introduced to Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees, and the Stories Begin) of Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne.


You could also make a felt set for your felt board, felt hand puppets, or even stick puppets so the children can participate more.

I prepared myself a script complete with verbatim sections from the book and engagement questions for the children.

Cute. And what a great idea to look for ideas amongst potholder patterns! To Ravelry I go.

These are absolutely adorable! You do such gorgeous crocheting! I wish I had your talent. It has been sooooo long since I picked up a crochet needle that I don't think I remember how to do it.

Thank you so much for sharing in this week's FFRU! I love reading where others find their inspiration. I wouldn't have thought of a crocheted potholder pattern!
