Star Wars Finger Puppet Templates

Now for something completely different.


We saw these Star Wars felt finger puppets a few weeks back, though they were posted to Make and Takes website a few years ago. Simple felt finger puppets using basic shapes and easy to put together.

Of course, once we sat down to start working on them, I wanted to come up with a faster/more efficient way of cutting out the felt pieces. That got me hand drawing which rapidly turned into an Inkscape project because I knew I could reuse elements.

It spiraled out of control.

Once I had gotten all the felt templates done, I realized just how far I had gone and knew it would take us a while to get the puppets made, but the troops were getting restless. So, I took the templates and turned them into printable/colorable pages that could be used to make finger puppets out of paper.

Huge hit and it gave us time to get the felt ones in work.

So, all the templates have been compiled into a downloadable PDF – felt template, a color printable, and a black-and-white printable for coloring.

Included in Volume 1 are Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Yoda.

More will be coming soon as I’ve already been asked for Darth Maul and R2D2 and C3PO.

  1. Thanks – tried other sites but….they didn’t work! Looks like fun to make these as I already have the origami set to work on. Jo Hall
