4-pack of in-the-hoop Animal Hand Puppets


Get all four animal hand puppets at a discounted price when you buy them in a package.  These are the exact same puppets as the Piggy, Bunny, Kitty, and Teddy Bear that are sold separately here in the shop.  Same files, lower price.  Gotta luv it!

  • Includes 4 animals:  bear, bunny, kitty and piggy
  • Includes 2 sizes for each animal:  small for 5×7 hoops to fit child hands, and large for 8×8 or 6×10 hoops to fit adult hands
  • Stitches up fast in one hooping.  Easy in-the-hoop project for beginners or advanced embroiderers.
  • You can use any type of fabrics for these puppets.  Great for bath gloves, recycled fabrics, or scrap buster projects.
  • Applique can be skipped if you want an even faster stitchout.  You can stitch the placement or satin stitches to define those areas rather than using applique fabrics.

All designs are digital downloads for embroidery machines.  Files will be available immediately after purchase on a download page.

Supplies Needed

  • Use any fabrics and colors to suit your own style. Fleece makes a sturdy puppet. Try terry cloth for a bath mitt, or use your favorite cotton prints to really jazz up the look! Try upcycled fabrics for an eco-friendly puppet.
  • The small size needs 2 pieces of 6″x8″ fabric. The large size needs 2 pieces of 7″x9″ fabric.
  • Both sizes need small pieces of fabric for the optional applique areas.
  • You will also need threads and any stabilizer for machine embroidery.
