How did you wash the fur. It look so much better.

By hand in the bathtub. Once with just washingforumula for clothes and the second time with regular old parfumed showergel.
He smells nice now  Wink

And then I waited 3 long days for him to dry, in front of the heater.  Roll Eyes
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Porky's Second Lifetime on: November 27, 2007 08:05:14 AM
Last Friday my older brother got home late, carrying a hudge plush Pig under his arm. He told the story of Porky, who was trown out of a flat (by an adult) Friday morning before 8 and was still laying outside on the grass at 5PM. My brother was in shock how could anybody simply trow out a plush that was still in okay shape? So he took him home.

I washed him twice by hand (didn't fit in the machine) and let Porky dry for days.

Yesterday evening I fixed him up.

Porky Before

Porky After

(The human in the photo's that's my older brother, still single ladies Wink)

What I did to Porky?
- washed him
- fixed the 4 small holes
- extra stuffing
- new snout & nose-holes

I plan on giving Porky a saddle/deck later but for now he already looks much better. Tomorrow morning my baby brother Ben (4) is going to find him "eating" the carrot in his shoe (who he puts down every other night in the hope Sinterklaas, the dutch santa, put something in it).  Grin Poor stepdad has to eat half of the carrot.  Cheesy

I'm pretty sure Porky will spend his remaining years with us. Being cuddled to death.  :wink:

I crocheted a bear (from a pattern out of amigurami vol. 1 book), and gave it some special flair. I gave it hair instead of a hat, a fuzzy scarf, and a nose instead of a snout.  Cheesy Took me 5 days to make him.

It's aproximatly 25cm high and everything but the eyes and the face-expession is crocheted!

I needed a break from my snake (a w.i.p.), so I decited to make a turtle following the pattern out of amigurami vol 5. Well, I did ajust it quite a bit because 1) I don't speak/understand Japanese and 2) If I can make it a 5 pieces to assembly instead of 6 I'm happier.

I got some new yarn to work with, and even though I used my G hook (4.25mm) it's tiny!

Took me about 1 and a half hours (I crochet very slow).
