Trace and cut out pieces below. You will need two body pieces and two wing pieces for each puppet. Sparingly glue together to hold for sewing. I added a piece of fringe under the eyes for eyelashes, and purple thread for whiskers (knot together a few lengths and glue under small felt triangle nose). Fabric paint works great for eyes and details!
I found this awesome purple and black flash felt in a multi-pack of felt one year... I'd love to make these again but get disappointed... can't find ANY flash felt anywhere. Grrrr.
The classic Stellaluna, by Janelle Cannon, is surely a must-read bat story.I love Brian Lies' Bats at the Beach, too, for a fun bat story that will have kids reminiscing about summer fun!
