Lord of the Fingers

June 27, 2012

Well, I went ahead and did it.  I opened up an Etsy Shop.  I know.  The desire to conform to societal pressure was just too much for me!

So I up and did it and I have 1 thing for sale!  Woo hoo!

Wanna see?

You can tell what it is, right?

Lord of The Rings Finger Puppets!  I made them for my best friend, and now I guess I'm going to sell them.  Not the puppets themselves. Those take forever to make.  Just the Pattern is for sale so that other people can spend hours making them for themselves. I was thinking about just giving the pattern away for free to all the Lord of the Rings Fans of the world who are in the market for finger puppets, but I also want to make loads and loads of cash, so what's a girl to do?  

I think Sam is my favorite.  Though he is my favorite in the movie too, so I guess it figures.  And Aragorn looks like Professor Snape for some reason.  

So, uh yeah, that's it.  I can't think of anything else to say.   Does anyone want a pattern?   I think I will give my pattern away for free to the first 3 people who ask for it.  Because I have a generous heart.  And after that you can buy the pattern at my store.    I was going to give away the pattern to the first 5 people who asked for it, but what if there are only 5 people in the whole world who are interested in Lord of the Rings Finger Puppets?  

Ok.  Gotta Go.  This is a very exciting day for fingers everywhere!

  1. Hi Elisa, I'm a friend of Alisha Hewett's and I've been stalking/following your blog for a while. I LOVE your writing and your mom-ing and...well, anyway.

    These puppets are AWESOME! I would love a pattern, if you want to give it to a random stranger. Sam is my favorite too, although Gimli's beard makes my little heart go pitty-pat. Maybe you could make some Harry Potter puppets too (you know, in your spare time) and then Aragorn/Snape would be totally justified :)

  2. These are too fun! You are talented. I would love the pattern but heaven knows I will never have the time to make them so you can sent the pattern along to another commenter but I just wanted to say how cute they are. AND the name of your shop is just awesome. LOVE you!

  3. Ohoho, these are SO cute!!! Is there any chance I'm the third person asking for a pattern???
    Those are darling. :D

  4. Holly, I need your email address so that I can send the pattern to you!

  5. I LOVE these! And I favorited and circled your etsy store. Twice. Because I love that too. And also I still think we should do stuff together on etsy, except that one shop I opened just turned into a "hey, come buy all of my dumb artwork" thing. But I still think it should have more....someday....when we both have glowing amounts of time to do more crap. And also, you HAVE to do Doctor Who finger puppets now. With Doctors 10 and 11. And all the companions. Do it. DO IT NOW.

  6. In case you are worried that all that effort was for naught, my sons and I use them to reenact lord of the rings scenes. Which sometimes devolves into Star Wars/ Harry Potter/LOTR/Transformers battles. For example: who would win in a fight Yoda or Gandalf? Optimus Prime or Darth Vader. I also use Snape as Aragorn and Gandalf as Dumbledore sometimes, don't tell.
