STEP ONE

Cut out the Yoda body pattern and secure to the piece of green felt with straight pins. Then cut the felt following the pattern.

STEP TWO

Cut out the Yoda robe pattern and secure to the piece of brown felt with straight pins. Then cut the felt following the pattern.

STEP THREE

Now you need to make Yoda's tunic. Cut out a piece of tan or gray felt a little larger than the collar opening of the robe. Glue this to the back of the robe.

STEP FOUR

Glue the robe and tunic to Yoda's body.

Turn Yoda over and glue the craft stick to his back. Leave part of the stick exposed on the bottom so you have a handle for the puppet.

Finally, cut a small green square from the scrap felt for the nose and a small red triangle for the mouth. Glue these to Yoda's head along with the googly eyes to make his face!
