How to Draw: Trace the shape of the puppet onto paper. Draw the face and designs on
the paper with a pencil. When the design is what you want, trace the pencil lines
in dark ink. Put the paper inside of the puppet. Trace the line onto the pupper with permanent marker or fabric marker.
How to Color: Using permanent marker or fabric marker color in spaces in the desired
colors. To help set the ink iron for several minutes on a dry setting.

on the decoration or on the spot on the puppet. Spread glue slightly with a
toothpick and attach the decoration. Press it firmly to help the glue seep into the
fabric. Allow adequate drying time. Decorations can be sewn on by an older
person, but be sure to only sew through one layer.
