(If you’re looking for patterns for other puppet types, please browse the other categories as you’ll find more lists there)
I will be adding to this list as I find more patterns. Please note that these patterns come free courtesy of the credited people; please respect their wishes for creditation (if requested) if you publish the link elsewhere. This is the total of these particular puppet type patterns listed on this site; feel free to browse for more on my site, but you’ll just end up back here again I promise.
Usually used in children’s theatre, sock puppets are… well, socks… Duh! Sock puppets are made by removing part of the toes of a sock, and inserting and attaching a mouth piece (usually made out of a stiff cardboard) to the inside of the toe area. Then the outside of the sock is decorated with facial features, hair, and so on.
Australians may want to buy locally. Where? I explain here.
