8)Tie one strand of licorice into a loose knot, insert this into the centre of the bum end of the jelly roll

9)Put icing on the biscuit and stick the pig on top
10)Paint the plate with a very thin layer of chocolate pudding, place all the piggys in a circle
11)Sprinkle crushed cereal in the middle.

3)Prepare the first layer of fudge; in a medium saucepan melt 100 gram chocolate chips, 100 grams peanut butter, 3/4 cup condensed milk - once this is melted stir in 1.5 cups crushed wafer cookies.  Quickly spread this on top of the ice cream and return it to the freezer.  wait until this is hard and then move on to step 4.

Chair Deocation:
what you need: xballoon software, printer, paper, ribbon, tape

1)Download xballoon software at www.xballoon.com
2)Create the 'ballow'
3)print on regular paper
4)cut out the image
5)tape curled ribbon to the bottom
6)add ribbon to the top and tie onto a chair

Piggy dress - more pics to come - I was in a time crunch and didn't take any of the process
what you need: button down blouse that fits your daughter, pink felt, 1 meter fabric - your choice, binding to match fabric.

1)Cut circle skirt : fold fabri in half one way, and in half the opposite way so you get one point of only folds.  fold shirt along the buttons, use this to mark the fabric on both ways out from the folded point,  draw a 1/4 circle from one point to the other.  measure out the length you want the skirt all around and draw another 1/4 circle, cut along both lines.
2)Sew circle skirt onto blouse, pin carefully so skirt does not stretch
3)remove collar from blouse and replace with the fabric of your choosing
4)trim sleeves with fabric of your choosing
5)pin binding aound skirt and stitch on.
6)cut image of pig and applique to skirt
- you should be able to save the image I have and use it as your applique pattern

7)draw details on pig with fabric marker and hand stitch the "leash" on
8)iron the dress and hang it up until needed

Piggy Pinata
what you need: 1/3 meter fun fur, 30mm safety eyes, 1/3 meter cotton fabric, thread, stuffing, pinata fillers, 7" zipper

1)cut out fabric - hopefully you can create a pattern based on my pic, if not pm me and I will create a pattern for you
- also cut a slit into the belly about 7" long
2)sew outside of pig and insert safety eyes

3)stuff head and legs and hand sew stuffing stoppers in place

3)sew lining of pig

4)put lining into the pig outer shell
5)cover the edges of the tummy opening with the binding and pin zipper into place, stitch into place
6)fill pinata and zip closed, when ready to play, hang and unzip

And her present was the homestead greeter pig with jammies and dress to match her own

Cute idea I used to have a friend who loved pigs and she would have eaten this up. Thank you for sharing.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

Oh goodness! Those piggy snacks are soooo cute. I'm sure kids of all ages (including "grown-ups") would have fun at this party Smiley.

My ten-year-old granddaughter raises and shows pigs at livestock shows. She will love these ideas!

Just adorable.  I absolutely love how you made a piggy skirt instead of a poodle skirt.
