The aliens from Sesame Street aka Yip Yips, are so cute & when i saw this pattern from Repeat Crafter Me, I knew these had to be made. I think I’ll make a few more and tuck them in my (adult) kids’ easter baskets. I can’t decide if i want them to hang or put a magnet on the back. They are about 5" tall, I used scrap yarn and googly eye finger puppets, and I folowed the pattern for the most part. They are cuter in person than they are in the pictures.
Aww… very cute!
Super cute! The googly eye finger puppets are genius and work so well. Looks like an Easter egg would fit in there nicely!
These are the literal best!
I always loved the yip yips! These are sooooo cute!
These are amazing. And I would add them to a bobby pin or barette and wear them in my hair every day until the eventual heat death of the universe.
Cuter in person? I can’t even imagine that. These are fantastic. Yes, make more!!!
They are so cute
Oh, these are delightful! Using the finger puppets for the eyes is brilliant! They could even hold a dyed egg in the Easter baskets! hehe!
Brilliant-- that is the best use I’ve ever seen for those ridiculous eyeball rings.
Woohoo!! This fantastic project is featured this week!
ADORABLE ! Yip Yips have always been a favourite of mine.
I can hear them in my head (that’s a good thing). Ah, classic Sesame Street, where you play in construction yards and no one gets hurt. These are so cute. Personally, a magnet would be fun. Or a magnetic clasp that has one of these on it with vintage fabric.
If you had a slow ceiling fan to hang a yip yip from it would drive a cat wild.
What is this ridiculousness and why did I not see it before? These little guys are just AWESOME! Well done.
I keep looking at these. I have zero reason to make them & yet, those silly eye thing are in my cart & I’ve got the pattern pinned, lol. Irresistible!
i know what you mean i ordered those eyes specifically for this project, now i have all these extras, but it would probably cost more to ship them than it did to order in the first place. they are a fun and quick-ish project though
Make more! Include them with every gift forever, lol. I would be so happy to receive such a weird little thing, they are positively delightful.
I don’t know what I’ll do with them, either, but I just got my googly eye things in the mail. I love the frog, too. They might make fun raffle prizes at school! Although, I wonder if any of my students would even know what the Yip Yips are.
Here are my first 2- the first of many! I would have made more this weekend, but I forgot to pack the googly-eye rings with my yarn (mini craft weekend at my friend’s house!).
The green one is a bit smaller because it’s Caron Simply Soft instead of Red Heart Super Saver. I also opted not to fray the fringe… but I may change my mind on that!
