TOMTEN Finger Puppet


We've been reading The Tomten by Astrid Lindgren quite a bit lately. The other night Shane pulled out the finger puppets I made about two years ago, he was having fun putting on a puppet show and I thought little Tomten would make a perfect addition to our puppet collection. So, this morning I stitched this guy up! Everyone is already enjoying him :)

If you've never heard about this wee creature you can read about him here and Milla also did a post on him which you can read here.

  1. Oh my gosh he's perfect! I love tom ten. There's a really pretty song about him for Christmas that always makes me cry.

  2. aaaah!!! he's amazing! i love that story so much...it's our special only-read-it-at-winter-solstice book. i am blown away by the magic you made with felt and thread! incredible. good job mama!!

  3. awww, we have that book too but i haven't really shared it with toot yet; can't wait to be able to read the "longer" ones to her and have her get into them. i think i will at least give it a try as we get into the colder months! i LOVE how you just crafted that little guy right up, what a cutie!

  4. this is so adorable. (I just discovered your blog and I love it! super lovely photos.)
    have a great weekend!
