The Muppets Big Book of Crafts is a how-to book written by the Muppet Workshop, instructing readers on how to create a variety of Muppety crafts. In the pages, the Muppet Characters provide comments and advice on the various crafts. Sidebars highlight actual techniques used by the Muppet Workshop or in other aspects of Muppet filmmaking, as well as the craft interests of Jim Henson and other Muppet people.

The book builds on the previous The Muppets Make Puppets but it’s even more in-depth and ambitious. Muppet Workshop staffers (or other Henson employees) designed and built each project, and receive individual credit in the side margins. In many cases, the crafts reflect the specialties or chief expertise of the individual designer. Thus, costumer Barbara Davis contributed several jewelry or clothing ideas, while tie-dying and dipped cloth crafts came from fabric dying supervisor Jason Weber. Mechanical designer Larry Jameson presented the “Rolling Thingamajig,” a wooden push toy with wheels that wobble and a head that joggles on a neck spring.
