Hey Mathieu,
  If you haven't tried it yet, try the design with the index and middle
finger in the head. You can use one finger tube or a oval for both
fingers. This will give you more strength for the neck and by turning
one finger you can get a turn of the head without a turn of the body.
Little more dexterity and strength, and IMHO a bit easier on the hands

Thanks, I did have two fingers in the head of my first hand puppet (Gregor) 
and I do miss that strenght.
I had to stop the ehad movement from happening on this specif puppet, as its 
beard got in the way ofn the hands, and it looked awkward.

My next hand puppet will probably be a hybrid. I still have to find a way to 
change the position of some of the fingers on my own hand.
Anybody know how long it takes for stitches to hold?
