What you need:
Cakes's little Pixie friend was having A Very Hungry Caterpillar party for his first birthday. I really like to try match the theme with part of the present if possible. As I cannot knit or crochet I had to enlist Nanny into helping us create this super cute puppet. I stumbled across a great tutorial that my clever Mum was able to pick up and follow. Since Cakes was born, Nanny cannot help herself and constantly knits and crochets, so the one puppet I requested turned into 2 large puppets and 3 small ones. The small ones were for Cakes, her little pixie friend and Big Cousin H. The two large ones were for Aunty Weeze and myself (not that I am complaining). First Mum made the crochet hand pieces, eyes and noses. Then they found their way back to our house where Cakes and I traced some circles and my finger to make the faces and antenna. These puppets are still a hit in our household and Aunty Weeze and Cakes's little Pixie friend seem to also.
