Illustrated how-to instructions of Emmie, Yùzǐ and Morio demonstrating how to make knit glove bunny puppets.
7.2 Bunny Puppets
Emmie: Hi everybody! 
Yùzǐ: Yo! 
(Morio: Hello.)
Emmie: Today we’re gonna learn how to make bunny puppets with knit gloves!
*Morio holding a basket of knit gloves*
(The author learned how to do this when she was real little!)
*Morio putting on one glove*
1) First, you put on one of the knit gloves.
2)Then take the other knit glove and poke the middle finger in.
3) With your hand that is wearing the knit glove, poke your middle finger into the gap. 
*Emmie helping Yùzǐ with the second glove*
4) Fold the other glove into your palm. The index and ring fingers of the empty glove go next to your middle finger to form the ears and head.
5) Now wrap the bottom of the glove you are wearing up and over where your thumb and little finger are. This makes the bunny’s body.
Emmie and Yùzǐ: YAAAAAY YOU DID IT!!!
Morio: You did it.

Author’s notes: All the rage at robot-run laundromats! 😀 I hope these instructions are clear enough to follow. It’s fun for kids and adults and great with gloves of all kinds of colours and patterns. Making one of these soft little guys never fails to put a smile on my face. May your bunny puppet cheer you up and boost your inner strength!

In other news, I finally got around to making a Ko-fi account.

Read more.

If you’ve not heard of Ko-fi, it’s basically a digital tip jar to support creators whose work you enjoy. The tips can help offset expenses such as hosting, art supplies, etc. and of course encourage and motivate creators! And if you tip me there (or “buy me a coffee”, as the metaphor goes… I drink tea btw lol), you’ll get a special little thank you! 😀

I also want to say: please don’t feel obligated to do so. It’s a tough time for almost everyone right now in so many different ways, and some people definitely have more stable situations than others.

Please remember to take care of yourself first, and also to support organizations and individuals in your local community who are doing good work whenever you can. And then, if you still want to and are able to tip me on Ko-fi – thank you!

There are many other ways to support me and my work, and you’re doing one of them right now by reading this! Thank you so much for making Emmie and their story a part of your day – that means a lot to me!

Wishing all of you safety, health, and good things.
