While on the mission to make a new product, a felted piggy bank, I realized that in fact I had stumbled upon a new form of hand puppet. I've fallen in love! This particular cat is staying with me, as he's already like a part of the family, but I do intend to make more of this type.
Despite the body being quite rotund, it is a comfortable fit for the hand, thanks to the bottom felted piece which has a slit, through which you pass your hand. It wraps snugly around the wrist for a nice fit.
The idea for this video comes from the classic cartoon, Tom and Jerry. Tom was too lazy to catch mice, so his master bought Mechano - Cat of Tomorrow, to take care of business.
All available hand puppets can be found on my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/Kandinskystudio
