Nativity Finger Puppets

A couple years ago, I saw this little pocket nativity set in the Deseret Book catalog:


I put it in my ideas notebook to do sometime. The "sometime" has finally come! :)

I drew all my own shapes, but used ideas from all the figures they had in the set.

Along with the Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, cow and angel, they had in the set, I also wanted to have a wise man,

And a shepherd and sheep.

I made all of the figures out of felt with regular thread or embroidery thread to sew it together and decorate. I especially like the metallic silver thread on the angel's halo.

They are all ready for little fingers to play with and tell the wonderful story that is the reason for the season!
