How to Make 3 Classic Children’s Toys : Children’s Puppet: Cutting Fabric

First we'll cut our fabric for covering our cup Now you want to cut enough fabric so that there, lay your cup on the fabric so that you have about an inch on the bottom hanging off

Then on the other side you're going to be wrapping the cup with the fabric and you want to leave about six or so inches on the top or depending upon the size of your cup, about double the size of your cup I'm just going to cut it off like that, making sure we have enough to wrap around the cup and have a little overlap Okay, and just test it out here That looks good I'm going to just trim it a little bit to make it straight here on the top

Next I want to turn down the edge, the top edge and I'm going to just sew carefully First I'm going to press this; this fabric is not holding flat I'll press it, and I'm going to sew just a simple in and out stitch along the top so that we can gather it later So I've threaded my needle, and I'm just going to put my needles, just sew in and out, in fairly large stitches all along the top and this will become our gather line You want to come down about a half inch from the top and in the end, we'll gather that around the neck of the puppet

So pull it through and I'm going to cut off my thread here from the needle and then just put a knot on the end of this side So I have a knot on one side and a knot on the other side, and then later we'll want to gather it up like this
