This Little Piggy

My husband said a friend of his at work has a nine-year-old daughter who really likes pigs. I decided that was as good of an excuse as any to make one. This friend helped my husband take a load of stuff to the neighborhood clean-up thing on Friday so this morning, as a sort of a thank you, I sent a piggy (complete with a curly tail, even) off to work.

I'm thinking the same idea could be used to make dogs and cats too (I'm envisioning a three little piggies set as well, with a wolf). Stocking stuffers. Yeppers.

Oh, and speaking of those (stocking stuffers) I'm ahead of that game already. My eight-year-old loved the penguin, so I made another. I followed the basic instructions I jotted down while making the first and came up with a similar (but not the same) bird. There's a reason I don't write patterns.

The tail! The tail! I just love that Kute, Kurly, little tail!




Sorry, I had to do it! I am an antagonist at heart! No wonder my 8 year old is such a brat!!!

I love the tail. So when you make these do you make them in pieces (body, arms, legs, head) and join them, or do you work out each of the limbs as you go?

Very cute. And it makes sense to me that each would be different, even following a pattern, because each little fellow is unique. :-)

PRECIOUS Piggy, Marcia ! I wish I could make amazing crafts like you do. But, I'm afraid that I do ride the short bus to craftland. ;-)
