Children's Crafts - Wooden Spoon Puppet from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:
Machine knitting wool spoon or thick cardboard rolled into a cone
Wooden spoon with long handle
Fabric
Fabric glue
Tape measure
Needle and thread
5 inches ribbon
Paint or felt tip pens
Scissors
Scrap paper and pencil
Scraps of wool

1. Measure depth of cone, add 5cm and cut a quarter circle of fabric with a radius of this measurement. Fold one long edge under and, using fabric glue, stick around the cone, with neatened edge on top. Tuck spare fabric to the inside and glue.

2. Measure round top edge of cone and add 2.5cm. Put the spoon into the cone so that the handle reaches to the bottom. Measure from the top of the cone to the base of the bowl of the spoon and add 5cm.

3. To make the dress, cut out a rectangle of fabric to the measurements taken in step 2. Fold in half lengthways and sew up the side, taking a seam of 1.2cm. Hem top edge. Turn to right side.

4. Glue unhemmed edge of dress to inside top edge of cone. Use the ribbon to tie hemmed edge of dress tightly round spoon handle, just beneath bowl of spoon.

5. To make a hat, measure across bowl of spoon and add 2.5cm. On a piece of paper, draw a tall equilateral triangle with the base line this length. Add a rectangle at the bottom, and cut out.

6. Use paper shape as guide to cut out two pieces of fabric. Place right sides together and sew up the side edges. Turn out. Turn in a very narrow hem at the bottom. Turn up the brim and glue to spoon.

7. To finish, use paints of felt tip pens to draw features on the bowl of the spoon for a face. If you like, glue a few pieces of wool underneath the brim of the hat to look like hair.
