On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Mugsy with puppetnetwork.com. Today, we’re making puppets. Ok, so the next step in building our monster puppet and by the way, this is going to be a gloved arm monster puppet. Kind of like the puppets that you see on programs like sesame street, for instance Oscar the Grouch, when he first started he was a gloved arm puppet that had one arm like the one that we’re going to build today. And the second arm is just assumed to be dangling underneath the stage. But basically you want to have this type of pattern. So you want to take a look at that, you’re going to lay your hand like this and trace around the edges with your magic marker. And you’re going to create a pattern similar to this, now the head doesn’t have to be completely round, it could be pointy, it could be wide, it could be really thin, whatever your preference is. This is the pattern that I chose to draw today. What you are going to do is to take sewing machine and you’re going to sew all the lines. Ok, so after you have sown your pattern and cut the pattern out along the edges, then you’re going to have this. And we’re going to turn this inside out simply by putting our hand inside here, and the other hand inside here, and we’re going to open it up a little bit with our hand in there, and then put your hand inside the glove and you want to start poking those fingers too, with your actual fingers inside, as you can see they are starting to immerge as our little puppet, monster puppet hand is born here, ok. Basically, when you operate the character, you’re going to be operating it with one hand on the head and one hand on the glove, alright.
