Halloween Shadow Puppets

Halloween Shadow Puppets: Witch, Jack O'Lantern, Ghost -Muumade

Looking for a Halloween-themed activity? Here’s how to make Halloween Shadow Puppets of a witch, a Jack O’Lantern and a ghost, and have some chillingly fun theater time!

Download the FREE template (Halloween_Shadow_Puppets-Muumade_Free_Template-Letter (US Letter size) or Halloween_Shadow_Puppets-Muumade_Free_Template-A4 (A4 size)) and follow the quick and easy instructions below.

You will need:

  • Muumade’s Halloween Shadow Puppet template (links above);
  • Scissors;
  • Bamboo skewers, straws or thin sticks;
  • Tape;
  • Hole punch (optional); and
  • Cutter knife (optional).
Halloween DIY shadow puppets- witch, ghost, Jack O'Lantern - Muumade.com 1. Print the template (set the scale of the printer to 100%), and cut out the puppet shapes. 

If you want to cut out facial features or other details, go to Step 2.

If you want to keep your shadow puppets simple and emphasize their outlines, skip to Step 4.

2. If you want to cut out facial features or other details, here are two ways of doing so: 

  • To make symmetrical cut-outs using a pair of scissors: Follow the instructions in this step.
  • To cut out details with a cutter knife: Skip to Step 3.

To make symmetrical cut-outs, first fold the shadow puppet in half with its white side out, as shown in the first photo. Then, mark the details that you want to cut out along the folded edge. But remember to draw only HALF of their shapes (half of a mouth, half of a nose, etc.).

With a pair of scissors, cut them out.

If you make holes with a hole punch while the puppet is folded in half, you can make circles that are symmetrical, too. That is what I did for the ghost’s eyes.

The third photo shows the result when you unfold the puppet!

(Note: If you get a white line in the middle along the fold like I did, don’t worry. Simply trace over the line with a black marker!)

3. With a cutter knife, you can cut out any shape anywhere inside your shadow puppet. You can also use a hole punch to make perfect circular cut-outs. 

First, draw the details you wish to cut out on the white side of the shadow puppet.

Then, cut them out with a cutter knife.  (Remember to work on a surface which you don’t mind damaging, like a scrap of cardboard.)

4. Lastly, attach a skewer, straw or stick to the back of each shadow puppet. 

Place one end of the stick on top of the white side of the puppet in its center. (If you are using a skewer, place its pointy end on top of the puppet.)

Then, tape that end of the stick onto the puppet, making sure to cover over the tip and pressing the tape tightly around the stick.

(Note: The tape that I used is blue to make it easier for you to see in the photo. But you don’t need to use any special tape for this purpose. Normal transparent adhesive tape or masking tape works well.)

To make a theater for your shadow puppet shows, you will basically need a white sheet, a source of light and a place to hang the sheet. For details on how to prepare a DIY shadow puppet theater, here is a great link. (That same page also talks about the history of shadow puppets, as well as how to experiment with lights and shadows to create great puppet shows.) Here’s also another link that explains how to make a small DIY shadow puppet theater out of a cardboard box.

Doodling Patterns inside Chinese Characters

Doodling Patterns into Chinese Characters- Muumade.com

Doodling patterns inside Chinese characters is a great way to familiarize yourself with their beautiful shapes while at the same time having fun by making beautiful patterns.

But what exactly is doodling? According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, the word doodle is defined as an “aimless or casual scribble, design or sketch.” Now that does not sound all that productive, does it? But in truth, doodling has been found to help us concentrate, be productive and even inspire new ideas!  I have also found that doodling patterns helps me to disconnect and relax.   

Doodling Patterns into Chinese Characters- Muumade.com

So, here is how to doodle patterns inside a Chinese character, or inside any other shape for that matter: As shown above, draw lines to create separate sections inside the character or shape and doodle any pattern you wish in each section. It is as simple as that!

You can download a couple of free Chinese character templates that I created below:

Muumade-Free-Template-JOYMuumade_Free_Template_JOY-Letter (US Letter size)

Muumade_Free_Template_JOY-A4 (A-4 size)

 

 

 

 

Even though doodling in itself is not hard, coming up with patterns to doodle may not be as easy as you think. In fact, when I suggested the idea to my daughter, she said that she was not sure that she would be able to fill all the sections of a Chinese character with unique patterns. So, we started by looking for patterns in our environment to inspire us.

Doodling Patterns - linesAbove is a collection of linear patterns, which we found during a walk.

Doodling Patterns -radial symmetryHere is another collection of images.

Doodling Patterns into Chinese Characters- Muumade.com Combining different types of patterns makes the whole design more interesting. Try making a pine cone or a flower design that spreads outward from the center. And then make stripes or waves right next to it.

Playing with the contrast between black and white also helps bring depth to your work. Try lines of different thicknesses. You can also color in some areas.

Doodling Patterns Above are some other interesting patterns that I found in everyday places, from knitwear to electric cables.  

Doodling Patterns into Chinese Characters- Muumade.comI hope that my collection of pattern images will help you to get started with doodling patterns. I also encourage you to look around yourself to discover more patterns just waiting to be incorporated into your doodles.

How to Make a Pair of Shorts Less Short

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com

Do you have a pair of shorts that are a bit too short to wear comfortably? Well, here is a way to make your shorts less short!

You will need:

  • 1 pair of shorts that are too short;
  • 1 pair of old shorts or pants in a color which matches the shorts that you want to extend (they should be something which you wouldn’t mind cutting up);
  • Lace, to cover over the new seam (optional); and
  • a Sewing machine.

 
Let’s begin!

(Please click on the photos for a close-up view of their details.)

Making shorts less short

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com

1. From a pair of old pants or shorts, cut out two extension pieces that are the same width as the hems of the shorts that are too short (the width is indicated by the orange lines in the photos on the left).

Calculate how long the extensions should be as follows:

  1. If your extensions already have finished hems, or if you want to make shorts with frayed hems, cut the extensions to the length that you wish to add to the shorts. Click here to learn how to fray the hems.
  2. If the hems of the extensions are not finished, and you want to make sewn hems, make the extensions approximately 4 cm (1 1/2″) longer than the desired length. Click here to learn how to sew the hems.

Finish the hems of the extension pieces accordingly. (In the photos, I am using frayed hems.)

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com

2. Each extension piece has two seams. The green arrow in the photo on the left indicates the inner thigh seam, and the pink arrow the outer seam. Keep this distinction in mind when attaching the extensions to the shorts.

Turn the extensions inside out. In the second photo on the left, the bottom edge (indicated in orange) is the edge that will be sewn to the hem of the shorts.

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com

3. Before the extensions can be added to the shorts, the hems of the shorts must be unstitched and unrolled. (The shorts in the photos had frayed hems. So, I didn’t have to undo any hems.)

Place one of the extensions next to one of the legs of the shorts, as shown in the first photo on the left. Note that the edge to be sewn (indicated in orange) of the extension piece is facing away from the shorts, and the inner (green) and outer (pink) seams of the extension are aligned with those of the shorts.

Then, as shown in the second photo, slide the extension onto the leg of the shorts, align the edges to be sewn (indicated in orange) and the seams, then pin them together.

4. Using a sewing machine (with straight stitches), sew along the edge all the way around the thigh.

Repeat with the other leg of the shorts.

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com 5. When done sewing both of the extensions onto the shorts, turn the extensions right side out.

You now have successfully made your shorts less short!

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com 6. (Optional) If you wish to hide the new seam that you just made, you can sew some lace over it to decorate your shorts.
  
Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.com 7. Ta-da! A newly extended pair of shorts!

 

Making Shorts Less Short -Muumade.comNow your shorts are longer, fancier, and more comfortable!

Making a Waist Pouch from a Pocket

Making a waist pouch from a pocket - upcycling DIY project

This is a tutorial on how to make a waist pouch from a pocket. The finished waist pouch is a practical and fun accessory.  You can use it to carry around small essentials, such as keys, coins and cell phones.

Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project!

This project is also a great way to upcycle an old pair of pants. They might have become too worn to serve as pants, but their pockets can live on!

The pocket can be of whatever size and shape you like, but I recommend that you select one with an opening along the top, for easy access once it is converted into a waist pouch. If the pocket has a flap or a zipper, it is even better!

Making a waist pouch from a pocket - upcycling DIY project

Here are the materials that you will need to make a waist pouch from a pocket:

  • 1 pocket cut out from a pair of pants, ideally with a flap or a zipper;
  • Cotton webbing*, in your waist size + 30 cm (12″);
  • Sewing thread in a color that matches the cotton webbing;
  • 2 tri-glide sliders (appropriate to the width of your webbing); and
  • 1 pair of side-release buckles (in the size that fits your webbing).

*I used cotton webbing with a width of 2.5 cm (1″), but you can choose whatever width you like for your waist pouch.

Eco tip: In addition to upcycling old pants, you can also reuse buckles and sliders from old bags to make a new waist pouch!

Let’s begin!

(Please click on the photos for a close-up view of their details.)

 making a waist pouch from a pocket - Muumade.com 1. To make a waist band that is adjustable, first insert the cotton webbing into one of the sliders. 
 making a waist pouch from a pocket - Muumade.com 2. Then, slip on one of the buckle pieces. Hold the webbing so that the buckle piece is on the right of the slider, as shown in the photo.
 making a waist pouch from a pocket - Muumade.com 3. Bring around the end of the webbing which has the buckle, and pass it through the left slit of the slider, as shown inside the orange circle in the photo.

The buckle piece should now be on the loop of the webbing that you just created.

 making a waist pouch from a pocket - Muumade.com 4a. Pass the same end of the webbing through the right slit of the slider.
 making a waist pouch from a pocket - Muumade.com 4b. While keeping the loose end in place, make the loop of the webbing (with the buckle inside it) bigger.

 

Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project! 5a. You are about to sew the loose end of the webbing onto itself to permanently attach it to the center of the slider.

Pull the loose end out of the slider until there is approximately 2.5 cm (1″) between its edge and the slider, as shown in the photo.

 

 

Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project!Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project! 5b. Prepare a sewing machine with thread in a color that matches the webbing.

Set the machine to the zig zag setting, with a very short stitch length (0.5 – 1 mm) and a wide stitch width (4 -5 mm). (Click here for more details regarding how to set the stitch length and width.)

Sew along the edge of the loose end, across the full width of the webbing, as shown in the orange circle in the second photo.

 

Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project!Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project! 6. Once you finish sewing, pull the webbing to make the loop small.  The buckle will be right next to the slider, as shown on the left.

Repeat the last 5 steps with the other end of the webbing, using the second slider and the other piece of the buckle.

With sliders and buckle pieces on each end of the webbing, you now have an adjustable waist band for your pouch.

7. Place the pocket on top of the outside of the waist band, centering the pocket along the length of the band. Align the top edge of the pocket with the top edge of the band, as shown on the left.

Pin the band and the pocket together along their top edges. The second image on the left shows the backside of the pocket.

 

Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project! 8. Sew the pocket onto the band along their aligned top edges. 

I used a sewing machine (with the same zig zag settings and thread as before), but depending on the shape of the pocket, you may have to sew it on by hand. (If sewing by hand, please follow the instructions in the next step for the top edge as well.)

Making a waist pouch from a pocket, an upcycling DIY project! 9. For the bottom edge of the waist band, you will need to do some hand-sewing (even if you used a machine to sew the top edge in Step 8).

Prepare a needle with the same sewing thread that you used to sew the band. With the Whip stitch, hand-sew along the bottom edge of the band to sew the pocket and band together. (Note: Be careful only to sew the back layer of the pocket onto the band.  You do not want to sew closed the pocket!)
 
Now, you are done!

Making a waist pouch from a pocket - upcycling DIY project

Here it is! A cool upcycled pocket waist pouch with an adjustable waist band!

This waist pouch can be worn as a stylish accent to your outfit over your shirt or dress. Or, as it fits tightly around your waist, you can wear it under your shirt to discretely carry around small items.

How to Fix a Bag’s Lining and Pockets

How to fix bag lining and pockets - muumade.com

This post is about how to fix a bag’s lining and pockets. Below is what I did to fix the pocket of a bag, but similar techniques can be used to fix linings as well.

How to fix bag lining and inner pocketsMy old leather backpack has a pocket with a zipper.  But, as shown in the photo above, the fabric of the pocket got ripped after years of storing keys, cell phones, candies, etc.. 

The image above shows the pocket pulled inside out.  As you can see, I had already reinforced the bottom half of this pocket previously.  That partial reinforcement method works well if the tear (or the damaged part) is small and is in an easy place to cover with new fabric. If that is not the case, I recommend that you replace the entire pocket or lining, as described below.

How to fix bag lining and inner pocketsTo replace a fabric pocket or lining, the first task is to remove it carefully.  If you can unstitch it without unstitching the bag itself, use a seam ripper (the image on the left in the above photo) to remove the stitches around the pocket or lining.  If not, I suggest that you use scissors to cut it out as close to its edges as possible (the image on the right in the photo above).

How to fix bag lining and inner pocketsAfter removing the pocket/lining, measure its dimensions carefully.  (Note: If you cut it out with scissors, make sure to add at least 1 cm (1/2″) of seam allowance to the edges where you will stitch.) 

Then, cut out a replica of it from new fabric. When selecting the fabric, I recommend that you choose something thick, such as canvas. If you have any thick discarded clothing, this is a great opportunity to upcycle it. If you don’t have any heavy fabric handy, you can sew two layers of thinner fabric together, like I did with the pale pink fabric shown in the photo above (thus the zigzag stitches!). 

Once you have the new fabric cut out, sew the edges of the new pocket/lining in the same way as the old one, leaving only the seams that are to be attached to the bag. In my case, I sewed the two sides of the pocket.

After sewing, you do not need to turn the pocket/lining inside out; leave it so that its seam allowance is on the outside.

How to fix bag lining and inner pocketsNow, make folds along the edges that are to be attached to the inside of the bag.

As you can see in the above photo, I folded one top edge higher than the other.  The distance between them is the same as the width of the zipper of the pocket that I am repairing.

How to fix bag lining and inner pocketsInsert the pocket/lining into the bag, and pin its edges to the inside of the bag where you want to attach it. 

ladder stitch - Muumade.comThen, sew it onto the bag by hand.

I used the Ladder stitch for this task.How to fix bag lining and inner pocketsIf the stitches will be visible from the outside of the bag, I recommend that you do the following three things to ensure that those stitches will be as well hidden as possible:

  1. Use thread in a color that matches the area of the bag where the stitches will be made.  
  2. Make the stitches as close to the seams of the bag as possible so that they blend in with the existing stitches. 
  3. Make the stitches that are visible on the outside of the bag as small as possible.

Ta-da!  My backpack now has a new pocket!

How to Make Pom-Pom Ducklings

Felt Mallard Duck with pom-pom ducklings

In this free tutorial, you will learn how to make pom-pom ducklings. These ducklings are very easy to make and are irresistibly cute. Also, despite being tiny, they can stand on their own legs!

(Note: The Mallard daddy duck talking to the pom-pom ducklings in the photo above is a Little Felt Duck, made from one of my sewing patterns & tutorials.)

The finished ducklings are approximately 3 cm (1 1/4″)  tall and 3 cm (1 1/4″) long from their bills to their tails. But of course, you can use larger or smaller pom-poms to make ducklings in different sizes (and different colors, too, of course!). 

To make a pom-pom duckling, you will need:

  • 1 yellow pom-pom approximately 2 cm (3/4″) in diameter, for the body,
  • 1 yellow pom-pom approximately 1.25 cm (1/2″) in diameter, for the head,
  • 1 yellow 4-mm diameter craft pipe cleaner, for the legs,
  • A small scrap piece of felt, in pale yellow, orange, etc., for the bill,
  • 2 black seed beads, aught size 11/0 or 2 mm diameter, for the eyes,
  • Scissors,
  • Wire cutter, and
  • Craft glue

Let’s begin!

(Please click on the photos for a close-up view of their detail.)

How to make Pom-pom Ducklings 1. Apply a bit of craft glue to the large pom-pom, as shown in the photo.
How to make Pom-pom Ducklings 2. Glue the small pom-pom to the large pom-pom, pressing them together firmly with your fingers. Then, set them aside to let the glue dry.
How to make Pom-pom Ducklings 3. While the glue from the previous steps is drying, prepare a 6 cm (2 1/2″) piece of craft pipe cleaner.
How to make Pom-pom Ducklings 4a. Double over the pipe cleaner 1 cm (3/8″) from one end.

(The tip of the pipe cleaner is marked with a pink dot in this and in the following photos.)

How to make Pom-pom Ducklings 4b. Tightly press together the doubled-over area and twist it once.  Now, as you can see in the photo, the tip is securely wrapped onto the pipe cleaner.

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 5. Make a right angle at the pink dot.

You have just made one duckling foot! (The doubled-over part is the foot, and the pink dot is on its ankle.)

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 6a. The new blue dot marks 5 mm (3/16″) from the pink dot in the following photos. 

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 6b. As shown in the photo, hold the pipe cleaner so that it is at the 6 o’clock position with the duckling foot at the bottom.

Orient the foot so that it faces up, away from the surface on which it is sitting.

How to make pom-pom ducklings 6c. Now, bend the pipe cleaner 90 degrees to the right at the blue dot, so that the tip of the pipe cleaner points sideways while the foot remains facing up.

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 7. Continue to hold the pipe cleaner so that the foot is facing up.  At 1 cm (3/8″) to the right of the blue dot, bend the pipe cleaner 90 degrees downward.
How to make pom-pom ducklings 8a. The new bend is marked with a purple dot in the following photos.

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 8b. Bend the pipe cleaner 90 degrees, 5 mm (3/16″) below the purple dot. This time, the tip of the pipe cleaner should point in the same direction as the first foot.
How to make pom-pom ducklings 8c. This photo is an image of the same piece, but viewed from above, with the foot resting on the surface.
How to make pom-pom ducklings 9. Double over the last segment of the pipe cleaner to create a 1 cm (3/8″) long foot.  

Cut off any excess pipe cleaner if necessary.

Tightly press together the doubled-over area and twist it once.

You now have finished the duckling’s leg structure (with two big feet and skinny short legs).

How to make pom-pom ducklings 10. Make sure that the glue on the pom-poms is dry. 

If the pom-poms are still a bit squished, shape them with your fingers so that they are round again, as shown in the photo.

How to make pom-pom ducklings 11. Cut out a tiny rectangle from scrap felt, approximately 5 mm (3/16″) long and 3 mm (1/8″) wide. 

Then, round one of the narrow ends of the felt.  You just made the tip of the duckling’s bill (marked in orange in the photo).

How to make pom-pom ducklings 12. Apply a bit of glue to the non-rounded end of the felt bill, and attach it to the duckling’s head (the small pom-pom).
How to make pom-pom ducklings 13a. Next, apply a bit of glue to one of the black beads, and attach it to one side of the duckling’s head.

 

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings

13b. Repeat with the second bead, attaching it onto the other side of the duckling’s head. Make sure that the two eyes are level, as shown in the photo.

Let the glue dry.

How to make pom-pom ducklings 14a. Once the glue from the previous step is dry, press the duckling’s body (larger pom-pom) with your fingers to mold it into a longer and narrower shape like an egg.

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 14b. Then, using a pair of scissors, trim the rear half of the body to create a slightly pointy tail end, as indicated by the arrow in the photo. 
 How to make pom-pom ducklings 15a. Lastly, apply glue to the top of the bridge segment (highlighted in orange in the photo) of the leg structure.

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings 15b. Attach the leg structure to the bottom of the duckling’s body.

When gluing on the leg structure, make sure that the feet are facing the same direction as the duckling’s face. In the photo, I’m holding the feet, with the legs pointing toward the duckling’s body.

 

How to make pom-pom ducklings
 
15c. Once attached, press the leg structure firmly onto the duckling’s body. To do so, I recommend that you insert something thin and flat like scissor blades (as shown in the photo) between the duckling’s legs and then use it to press the glued area onto the body.
How to make pom-pom ducklings 16. Ta-da! You’ve made a tiny pom-pom duckling!

Perhaps one of the most endearing images of ducks is that of a mother duck with a long line of ducklings wobbling behind her. Mrs. Mallard and her eight ducklings from Robert McCloskey‘s classic picture book, Make Way for Ducklings, are one such an example. In fact, I’ve read that they are a popular attraction in Boston’s Public Garden!

Little Felt Duck mother with pom-pom ducklingsSo, as you can see above, my Little Felt Duck mommy also seems quite content with her five pom-pom ducklings!
