School boy puppet...

I have now finished my commissioned puppet and as promised I am here to show him to you all.  



The lady who asked me to make him is the proud owner of McPuppet who I made a few years ago.  She received him for a special birthday as a gift from some very special friends of mine.  He has a kilt, sporran and even a Tam o' Shanter hatHere's a quick snap of him.... the photo quality is poor sorry but I think you can see what he was like.







I've never met this lady but she tracked me down to make a special puppet for her son to leave behind him as he leaves his primary school.  We chatted over what she wanted and she offered to send me a sweat shirt to cut up so he was dressed correctly as a little school boy  :-)  I really love a challenge and I have spent this morning putting the finishing touches to him.  I hope she likes him as much as I do...he's quite a character.




Onward and upward for me next  :-)  I have now been contacted to make another Mr Tumble doll :-)  It's such an exciting job I have....I am soooooo lucky.
