I made a puppet!

I'm getting my Masters in Library Science, and for my Early Childhood Materials class this semester, our first assignment was to introduce ourselves to the class...via puppet. 

The puppet could be store-bought or homemade, old or new, as simple or as complicated as we wanted. I am, and always have been, a try-hard overachiever, so I opted to make my own puppet. 

So. How do you make a puppet?
