I think I figured it out

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

i just recently learned to knit...and i still suck at it...every attempt comes out lookin like dog crap...hah....so the crocheting thing is just too much for me as of now..but i think it;s absolutely wonderful! my friend and i were at school soccer conditioning a couple days ago (i'm in hs) and afterwards we were crossing a ditch over a bunch of gravel rocks and she asked if she could have a piggy back ride...i was exhausted (and not to mention already had quite a bit smaller frame then her, though normally i can carry her no problem) and meant to reply by saying "can pigs fly?" as in no, not a chance....however instead i said "can you fly like a pig?".....she got a kick out of it....wish i could make this for her...sadly i can't.... Undecided that was probably a confusing story but im laughin thinking about it....great great great job!!!

So adorable  Smiley
My father has a thing with flying pigs, so he'd get a kick out of them.  I'll have to make one for him

This is soooo adorable.  I wish I had the patience to complete something like that.  Sad  Great work though.

Why doesn't my nose ever turn out looking like the one you have originally pictured?  I had to alter the pattern at rows 3 & 4 to even get it close.  Am I doing something seriously wrong?  My camera broke(thanks to my two Siamese!) or I'd post a picture.

I did my wings in sparkly yarn too!  It's SOOOO cute like that!  I've used the wing pattern for TONS of stuff!  Like a little cupid bear for valentines!  (Boy, I miss my camera!)

As for the postee that said he/she didn't like sewing things on after...neither do I!  I did the ears like you did and did the tail on the back before finishing off.  Did you ever figure out how to do the feet?  I'm stumped (unless I do them flat but that is just NOT the same)!  Maybe some things just can't be done in a shortcut.

I also got pissy about working so small (I seem to have ZERO patience for tiny work) so I made a big ol' stuffed toy out of him!  I doubled the yarn and used a J hook!  I LOVE pink so I always have TONS of it on hand!!!

I don't know why the nose seems to not work for people...I guess it's just variations in yarns, hooks, technique...but that happens with every homemade pattern...my only suggestion would be adding  more rows to the nose before decreasing, then doing a sharper decrease to start the body. I'm sorry you all have trouble with it. I did my best writing it down but I've only been crocheting for 8 months, so I count as a clueless newbie. =) I added a new row to the pattern up there to try and help.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
