flahsback! beatles finger puppets

So what do you do when one of your knitting circle girls says she'd rather get toys at her baby's shower? Well, you make finger puppets, Beatles finger puppets, of course! Meet my little John, Paul, George and Ringo.
I decided to crochet them rather than make them knitted. I find it much easier to make up my own patterns when I think in crochet terms.
I fashioned them, and my illustrated downloadable paper versions, which are a free download here on the blog, after the Yellow Submarine album cover. I'm still working on the crocheted submarine to accompany them. That will come soon. It was a so fun to see them come to life once I stitched their hair and added their accessories—my favorite of which is John's scarf.
Aren't they the cutest?!! It was really hard to give them up, but to ease the pain I've decided to keep making them! They'll be making their next appearance in the Hanasaurusrex Etsy shop when it has it's Grande Opening on Thanksgiving day weekend. Look out!
I am also going to make other bands too! So be thinking of your favorite, I'll definitely be taking custom orders!
