Pinocchio - puppet story bag

"Pinocchio" actualy "The Adventures of Pinocchio" is a popular story of old times by Carlo Collodi
I still remember my " Pinocchio " book with the most beautiful pictures, from my childhood.
I have been asked to create a Puppet set for a local school ,they requested as many characters from the story as posible but on a reasonable price
The teacher that made the order said :
"Pinocchio" is a complex story , especially for "Year 1" kids , we would love to introduced it with some puppets.


Design:It took me, a bit of a time to came up with the design as all those so popular and well-known characters ,actually proved to be difficult.
Materials :I have chosen Felt for all of the puppets and Calicco cotton for the bag
Colour scheme ; Pastel colour scheme to sugjest some vintage style and to take us to an old times

The set is listed in my website http://www.puppetsinabag.co.uk/?505,pinocchio-puppet-story-bag

Pinochio is a hand puppet made entirely from felt and is 60 cm tall -this is my firs felt hand puppet I usualy make finger puppets only from felt



He is also available as an individual hand puppet


the rest of the characters in the set are 5 Finger puppets:

-the Turquise Fairy ,Geppetto ,Mr Cricket , Cat and Fox (2 in 1)and the "baddy" Stromboli


I am offering the 5 finger puppets on a set https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/221249015/pinocchios-characters-puppet-story-bag-5
and Pinocchio only as well https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/221251389/pinocchio-hand-puppet-felt-teaching?

The set contains 7 pieces - Pinocchio hand puppet , 5 finger puppet and a calico cotton bag
Hope The Children will enjoy reading and acting out the story with my puppet story bag
