Cobra Puppet

Tater loves reading about snakes, so I offered to make him a puppet of his favorite - a cobra! He picked out the camo fleece at the fabric store, and I used some tan I already had. This sock puppet-style pattern is really easy - especially if you don't need arms. The fangs are latex cosmetic sponges I cut down. I wish I could take credit for that idea! My only complaint is that they yellow over time, so next time I might paint them before attaching them to a puppet. The eyes are halved styrofoam balls wrapped in fleece with google eyes. The tongue is made of felt.
