  • Examples
  • Download the Character Design Worksheet to get started. Plan your character first and then use your sketch as a blueprint for building the puppet.

    The Pinhead Puppet Pattern focuses on a pill-shaped head that, in our experience, works especially well for humanoid characters. It allows more vertical space for typical human-like facial features. That said, there are still infinite character possibilities in this simple shape!

    What is included?

    • Detailed instructions with photos and drawings that will take you step-by-step through the building process.
    • A full-size pattern. The pattern accommodates both hand-sewing and machine-sewing - the choice is up to you.
    • You can download and print the instructions and pattern immediately after purchase.

    You may need Adobe Reader to print the pattern and instructions. If you don't already have it installed on your computer, or would like to download the latest version, you may do so here.

  • Check out the Gallery to see what others have created with our patterns. Of course, there are hundreds more in your imagination!
