Our stoat and cat puppets both needed necks, we needed to know whether the pieces of fabric that we have would fit around the body to create a long neck tube.
Lukas trying the cat's neck on for size.
Kyle, Elliott and Lukas decided to use string to wrap around the circular part of the puppet's body. The then laid the string along the edge of the fabric on the floor. To begin with, it didn't fit! But with a bit of creative thinking they were able to come up with a way that the stoat's neck could be made with what we had.
We used the same idea and both Lukas and Kyle showed off their great hand sewing skills to create a long tube for the cat's neck. Ka mau te wehi tamariki!
