A marionette for the little ones.
An experiment to see how 3d printing can help with creating puppets. With different heads, this can easily be modified into different animals.
â€¢ Print 4 paws, 1 Torso, 1 Tail, 1 Head, 2 Crosspieces, and 6 String Holders. Paint as desired.
â€¢ Cut 5mm dowels to various lengths: 6 @ 2.5 Inches long, 1 @ 5 inches. Glue into Crosspieces and String Holders like image above.
â€¢ Cut the fabric into 4 1" by 4" strips.
â€¢ Tie a bead onto one end of string and thread string thru hole in bottom of torso. Then sew onto the Fabric strip. See image above.
