Chewbacca Puppet I love making sock puppets. Muppets creator Jim Henson was a big inspiration to me as a kid. Watching episode after episode of Sesame Street, The Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock, I longed to live in a world full of puppet sidekicks, so I made a posse of puppets to create my own shows, and I had a blast. This Chewbacca puppet is made from a brown sock, brown fake fur, felt for the bandolier, a button nose and, of course, googly eyes! It's fun to see kids' AND adults' faces light up when they see a puppet. I often bring my Chewbacca puppet along with me out to dinner, to airports, to meetings and more. It makes people giggle, and everyone wants to pose with him for photos. He's quite the crowd pleaser!
