My daughter bought me an angry bird for Christmas - do spend daft amounts of time playing it when I should be doing house work !!!!
Anyway I decided it needed someone to play with so decided to make a pig.
As with most of my crafting I just sort of made it up as I went along ! I took some photos to share how I did it.
first I made a template from newspaper to get the parts the write sort of sizes.
then cut the bits from a fleece blanket - which in the sales made it much cheaper than buying just fleece material by the metre.
I used felt for the eye balls and nostrils.I placed all the bits out so I knew where they were going to be then I sewed on the eyes first using my trusty sewing machine, then the nostrils on the snout then the mouth.
then I sewed the snout onto the face,
I sewed the ear inside on first then put faces together and sewed round then turned right side out again .
I put the faces together with the ears inside and sewed all round except for a small gap for turuning,
and then stuffed him with toy stuffing and sewed up the hole.
I was so easy I had to make another one !!!
Hope someone else has a go as they were so easy and turned out so cute . . . now to start throwing things around . . .
