Simple Crocheted Finger Puppets & Lupey Long-distance Gifts

A wrapped Christmas gift with a red bow on top has a small simple finger puppet standing in front of it. The puppet has black hair, black dot eyes, a red smile and stripes on the body, from neck to bottom edge: green, blue red.

Once upon a time, there were two little children, a girl and a boy. The girl was 2 years of age and her brother was almost 6 months old.

These darling children are very much loved by a large family with lots and lots of cousins–an ample supply of playmates.

The children have regular contact with most of their cousins but there are some that live more than 1000 kilometres away! (That's me and my family.)

Christmas and birthdays present a challenge when choosing 'long-distance' gifts. I'm here to share my pattern for crocheted finger puppets and to explain how they were the perfect choice for two young children and their cousins at Christmas (2016).
