What You Will Need

Instructions

  • Start by cutting the pieces for your llama from the felt and iron-on vinyl.  Make sure that you mirror the vinyl images before cutting. 
  • Remove excess pieces of vinyl, then use the Circut EasyPress to apply the pink vinyl to the front of your llama. Remove the carrier sheet then repeat the process for the black vinyl.
  • Let this application cool and remove the second carrier sheet. Then attach the front of the puppet to the back by using embroidery floss and a whip stitch. 
  • Enjoy playing with your smiling llama finger puppet!

Notes

Note: When cutting Cricut iron-on projects, be careful to cut with the shiny side down.
