Sewing Tiny Gifts: The Marionette Theater Sew-Along


Hi Everyone! In Part 4 we wrap up the topic, Sewing Tiny Gifts, with a special treat! Shari is here to show is how to create a doll-sized Marionette Theater. Follow along and create one for your collection too!

When I was a kid, my grandpa gave me and all my cousins marionettes for Christmas. We LOVED them. It was so much fun trying to get them to walk, wave their hands, and even dance. We created a makeshift theater by throwing a blanket over my bed and spent most of the day creating little plays and putting on shows for our parents and grandparents.

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to make a doll size marionette theater. It is definitely a step up from a blanket over a bed and just the thing for your kids and their favorite doll to entertain themselves and everyone else during the holidays and beyond!

The pattern is available separately here: Thimbles and Acorns Marionette Theater

Once you have your theater made, it's time to get your marionette puppets strung up and ready to go! You can use any of the Cute Felt patterns or the two mini dolls, Charlotte and Pandora. Choose your desired handles and create your play!




New Years Eve is the perfect day to set up your new theater and perform your puppet show!
