I created this little guy a little while ago but wanted to share him with you all. He is a pattern I created. I put magnets on his back and around his chubby sides so that he could sit on a co-workers desk and collect paper clips. Enjoy, I am including his pattern at the bottom of the photo.

This is one of the first patterns I created in the Amigurumi Style.
Please let me know if there are any errors! Thanks

this is really neat.
my daughter collects pigs and she has
an office where this little pig would be right at home.
what kind of magnets did you use and how did you
insert them while keeping the pig round instead of bumpy looking?

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Thank you!!

These are the type of magnets I used, they are extra strong and I like these for my projects. I just stuffed them on top of the fiberfil stuffing and they blended in with it, no lumps. I put one on top of his back, one on each of his sides.

I hope you add a pic when you are done!
