my sister's birthday is coming up and, apparently, her favorite animal is a pig. so i decided to make her a raggedy pig. he is simply stuffed with rags from previous failed attempts at anything and cloth strips that were lying around. he doesn't really serve a purpose, he's just cute. only problem is, i can't figure out what to do for a tail. ideas?

here are the fabrics that i chose - it is two sided so two different colors.

i started with a nice drawing, with the help of my handy dandy compass!

then i proceeded to sew him up. here is a picture of one side, then the other.


and finally the happy pig's face!



...he looks rather like a cat.

Ohmygosh cute! The only thing that is coming to my mind is the use of pipe cleaners for the tail. Or wire covered in fabric? I don't even know if that's possible  Huh I don't make stuffies, I just enjoy their adorableness.

Oh, he is just adorable! Love the fabrics.
As for the tail-perhaps a fabric tube with a shorter piece of elastic inside? Sort of like a scrunchy.

Was going to say the same thing as above me... that will make it so it's springy... you can stitch it to the closed end and just make sure the fabric bit is longer than the elastic
