Karl Lagerfeld, Barack Obama, George Bush, and Dick Cheney finger puppets, designed in Mexico--does anyone else see the irony in that? These fun and realistic-looking felt figurines are really well done. They are unimaginably realistic considering the few pieces of fabric used and tiny stitched details included.

The puppets were designed and sewn by a very talented American artist Melanie Howard, who has a shop on Etsy.
