This full-sized pink furry puppet can be made in-the-hoop of your embroidery machine.
No modifications were made to the Yab pattern to make this little guy – just use pink Mongolian faux fur and pink fleece for the arms.
Read on for all the materials used!
Tools & Materials
|Tools Used||Materials Needed|
|Any sized embroidery machine||head/body – pink Mongolian fur (I bought mine at JoAnn but they don’t have it anymore. You can still find it on Etsy |

|Hemostats for turning small parts and for stuffing||Mouth – black fleece; Eyes – white stretch knit fabric|
|sharp fabric scissors||Tongue, nose & eyelids – pink knit fabric (from an old sweater)|
|small embroidery or applique scissors||Fiberfill for head “brain” pillow|

|(optional) wire cutters and pliers if adding wire armature||armature wire for hands|

- Make the puppet according to the design instructions using the materials listed above. NOTE: This puppet’s nose is smaller than the nose pattern with the Yab puppet pattern. About 2/3 the size.
- Trim the fur on the front of the face (around the eyes, nose, mouth, and chin)
- (optional) create wired armatures for the hands and insert the wire hand into the stitched puppet hands, then make a loop in the tail of the hand wire and insert it into the plastic balloon stake. Make the wire loop fat enough so it fits tightly into the balloon stake so the hand won’t come loose. Check out the Video for puppet arms in the Doll & Puppet Video series.
- And that’s it! An adorable pink furry puppet! (not gonna lie, he’s my favorite so far, I’ve named him Beasley)
