That Time I Hand-Stitched a Spiderman Hand Puppet
I am not a very crafty person, but occasionally I get a wild hair to make something, usually a gift, which usually ends in epic failure.
Last Christmas, I had the bright idea to make my young nephew a set of super hero finger puppets. My mom and I had a "craft day" where she zoomed through sewing several beautiful Barbie dresses for my niece and I struggled to make part of one Superman finger puppet. For four hours.
I gave up and bought him something for Christmas.
However, I got one of those wild hairs again in August. My nephew was turning five, and I was feeling both crafty AND frugal. Sometimes a great combo, oftentimes a disastrous combo. I had a bunch of felt leftover from the failed finger puppets, so I thought why not try a hand puppet? Surely that would be easier!
This time it turned out well.

In my usual procrastinating manner, I started on a Wednesday or Thursday night (can't remember which) and finished on Sunday. The birthday party was Sunday afternoon. I eyeballed the entire thing, so I don't have any recommendation for patterns. Just know that if I can do it, you can, too.
I'm planning on making Batman for Christmas. Hopefully it will go as well as this one did!
