Measley Mouth the Puppet

My boyfriend's nephew is turning 2 this month. He calls me "Aunty BB" because he can't pronounce my name yet, and he knows I have a horse although he's been too shy to come for a ride. In lieu of the real thing, at least for a little while, I decided to make him a puppet. I found some convenient scraps and crafty bits at a local thrift shop, and set to work.

I think Measley Mouth turned out pretty well! I'd love to make some more animals.

"Do you have any apples for me?" Asked Mr Measley Mouth.

"Look at my fine shaggy coat, perfect for winter camouflage!" The old horse neighed.
