Why do we call it "The Glorified Sock Puppet Pattern"? Because essentially that is exactly what it is - a sock (with arms). The Glorified Sock Puppet Pattern will take you back to the basics of puppet building and enable you to make a simple hand puppet that fits like a ... sock! But don't let the simplicity fool you. Though relatively easy to construct, a basic sock puppet can provide quite a challenge in puppeteering. It has the ability to capture a tremendous range of emotion and can be a real challenge for any puppeteer's skills. In fact, you will often find that puppeteering a basic sock puppet takes relatively more skill and more practice.
Go to our online puppet gallery to check out examples of what you can do with this simple pattern. Of course there are hundreds more in your imagination!

I bought this pattern 6 months ago and only got around to seriously using it to create my glorifieds, and the experience is amazing. Ive started to sell my puppets to pre- and primary (kinder and junior) school teachers here in South Africa and they are a hit!
I cannot wait to raise enough money to purchase the rest of the ProjectPuppet patterns.
Much love from sunny South Africa!:D

I bought this pattern years ago and used it to created a few puppets. Simple and easy to use. I have big hands, so I enlarged the pattern to fit me. Great value.
