Remember my piggie?


Well here's that tute you've been naggin' me about Smiley
Feel free to interprete it as you wish. My sewing english isn't as good as it should be.

Use fleece or jersey for the body, nose, backside of ears and tail, and a woven cottonfabric for inside ears and belly.

1. Draw your pattern. The pattern should contain 1 body&head-part, 1 belly-part, 2 different nose-parts  1 tail-part and finally 1 ear-part.
My body-part measures 11" width, and 5" hight, and the belly-part 8" width and 1" hight. Try to figure the rest out as you go. If you need to ask about anything Please, feel free! You're welcome.



2. Pin your needle to fabric and mark where to cut. " outside pattern should do it.

3. Cut out. When cutting out, You should now have 2 bodyparts (fleece), 1, bellypart (cotton), 4 ear-parts (2 fleece and 2 cotton), 2 different nose-parts (fleece), and 1 tail-part (fleece)

4. The triangular part is going to be your tail. Fold it and sew with a close zig-zag (as close as you can) and while you're sewing, draw it slightely to make it a happy tail. It will curl up by itself.

 5. Put the tail (with pointy part pointing inwards) and pin it between the 2 bodyparts. Sew the bodypart from marking to marking leaving 2" open for stuffing.

6. Sew bodypart and bellypart together.

7. Turn everything inside out and stuff as hard as you can (or want) with stuffing of your liking. I used a syntethic polyester, but wool shoud be equally good. You can actually shape your pig with the filling. If you want more cheeks or whatever, just put a little mor stuffing where you want it.
Sew the hole by hand and you'll see how it disappears in front of your very eyes Smiley

8. Sew the rectangular nose-part onto the circular nosepart as a "wall" and then close at the end.

9. Sew the ears and turn them inside out. Make a crease in the middle, fold in the margins (That HAS to be the incorrect word but I hope you know what I mean) and sew them onto the head where you see fit.

10.Now comes the more artistic part. With black cotton broidery-thread, make your face.
Don't forget to make nostrils on the nose.

11. Sew on the nose (I use a furniture-needle)

TADA!

You can alter this pattern forever. It will make a beuatiful cow, or dog, or bear, or cat, or whatever your sick imagination can think of Smiley Simply alter the ears, nose and tail.


Good luck!

you know, the basic shape would make an adorable squishy turtle.  just put less stuffing in the tummy to make it flatter.  obviously the snout would not be needed!

As I said. You can alter this pattern infinitely.
I'll probably make more animals when christmas is over, but right now, the pig is the one and only Smiley

These animals make great christmaspresents by the way Wink

Merry Christmas everyone!

Im going to go try my hand at your adorable little piggy. Ill be giving it as a gift to my best friend in the whole wide world, who is expecting a baby girl any day now. I bought some fuzzy pink fabric to make her a blankie out of and of course I always buy waaaay to much, And remembered your piggie, I thought it would be nice to send down with her blankie. And a way to use up the extra fabric that I dont think ill be using for anything else. Thank you for this awesome idea. Crafty Girls Amaze Me! Ill post the pictures to show you how it came out if you'd like  Grin
