Links With Love: Free Finger Puppet Patterns

[EDIT: There is an UPDATED version of this post!!]

The Puppy Finger Puppets (pictured below, in case you missed our original post) I created for The Monkey were such a huge hit that I have been searching for more patterns to quickly stitch together a few friends for them! We will soon share some of our own original patterns for sets of finger puppets as well! In the meantime, I put together a collection of some of my favorite ideas (each post linked up provides its own free pattern) from around the web to share with you.

  • Storytime Katie has her own version of the same puppies. She also includes a cute rhyme to say with the puppies!

  • The Purl Bee has another cute pattern (and awesome tutorial), this time adorable bunny finger puppets! They are a little Easter-y but I couldn’t wait until Easter to share them with you. Love the combination of white and bright spring colors!

  • Craftiness is not Optional offers a pattern for a set of finger puppets to go with the book Tacky the Penguin (it’s a really cute book, you should read it if you haven’t already.) We LOVE anything that brings stories to life and I can’t wait to make a set of these to go along with our copy of the book  (and the sequel!) She also made some cute Star Wars finger puppets but no pattern to go with them.

  • Nichole Heady explains how to make a lion, hippo, and monkey finger puppet. I think the hippo is my favorite.

  • Eight different animals including a bear, lion, frog, cat, dog, peacock, monkey, and pig (and an update with a giraffe – not pictured) at Bright Apple Blossom. She also has some animal finger puppet (paper) Valentine’s for download that might make cute templates for a felt version!

  • Finger Puppets to go along with the Monkeys and Crocodile song at Homemade by Jill complete with lyrics to the song. She features a lot of felt projects on her blog, including some really cute felt play food.

  • The Old McDonald characters on Just Another Day in Paradise are hand puppets, not finger puppets, but they were way too cute not to share! These are definitely on my list of things to make soon! The Monkey will LOVE them!

  •  Last but not least, the puppet storage bag designed as a barn seen at Red Fly Creations is perfect for the above Old Mcdonald set and a good idea for tweaking into a dog house or something similar for the puppy finger puppets! So many possibilities.

Those are just a few of the MANY finger puppet patterns out there. Hopefully these will help give you some more inspiration for a project of your own. I know we have many ideas floating around for adding friends to our set of puppies! Check back with us for more of our own finger puppet creations!

Have you made something similar? Or seen some more examples you think I should have included? I would love to see them! Comment below with links or email us!
