Hello there!
I wanted to show you all one of the thigs I've been doing. It's a little pink pig I made for my son, Felipe, who is as cute and chunky as the crocheted one.








What you see in the back are the body parts (ok, that sounded creepy) and the rest of the yarn I used.





I hope you like it.

Wow, you did an awesome job shaping the arms and legs. Is it jointed? I love the way jointed stuffed animals look, there's something kinda classy about them.

Thanks for the compliments.
About your question

Is it jointed?
I just sewed the arms and legs to the body, but they don't move.
I embroidered the eyes with black yarn, using satin stitch. First I stuffed the head and then did the eyes. To get the shape of the head, when I embroidered the eyes, I passed the needle through from one eye to the other several times and tightened it a little bit. I did the same when I sewed the ears.
I've written the instructions for this project in Spanish and I'm trying to translate it in order to post it here.
Thanks again for tha marvlous comments.
