So for Father's Day, I really wanted to make something for my dad that he would love. Well, after thinking about it for a while, I decided to create a Spider Pig from The Simpsons Movie.
I didn't find any pig patterns that I really liked much, so I created it myself. I attached the picture that I was following for inspiration. Smiley

Few questions, and I would LOVE suggestions if anyone has some!!! Should I add teeth? I tried that last night but nothing was really looking right. Also, I wanted to attach some sort of clip to him so that he can actually be the Spider Pig that he's intended to be and hang upside down. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can I can do with that?

I would love feedback!!! I'm not great at creating things without patterns, so I was very scared, but I'm actually quite satisfied with how he turned out. Smiley

Oh, and I apologize for the blurriness! My camera battery died today so I had to settle for my camera phone. Sad

My 10-year-old daughter saw this in the "recent with pics" gallery and immediately started singing the song, LOL!

Teeth would be great, but nose snouts would be better. That is great.

I would definetly make the snout "nostrils".  You can use some model foam (crayola make some).  It is really easy to mold and turns into a soft rubber that keeps it shapes and sticks to each other. That would be hilarious!
I have a question:  What type of stitch or technique do you use to attach the legs and arms and other parts to the little animals.  I have arms and legs to two teddy bears and I can't figure out the best way to make it look good.  HELP!           Cry Grin

I really like him  Grin - you did such a great job at making up your own pattern - he is definitely spider-pig (another one here who started singing the song when I saw the little preview box...)

I'm a bit stuck on ideas for making him hang upside down though - maybe some kind of little peg/clip might work? Or could you do something with velcro? Or some kind of mini hooks (I'm just imagining how cool he would look hanging upside down off of my curtain rail!)
I'd love to see what you end up doing!

I think I would probably try to give him some nostrils... (maybe little round pink beads, or tiny circles of felt?). But I don't know about teeth, sorry - felt maybe?
But I don't know that he needs teeth or nostrils - he's great as he is!! Smiley And I am sure your dad is going to love him!  Grin
