piggy, piggy, piggy what's this all about?



 Seriously... are these so pick-in cute??? Yes. They are. 


 I have no idea how I came across this blog ikatbag I am certainly happy that I did. 
& so is Maddie. 
She has amazing ideas and patterns. 
Maddie LOVEs pigs. She always has. 
Our wonderful friend Paul put it in her little head that she should have a pig for a pet....
(thanks Paul.) 
She has been asking for one for WEEKs...
So when I found this pattern  I was so excited. 
 It is a PDF and I had it within minutes of ordering it.
the coolest part is that there is a zippered compartment in Piggy's Belly. 
It stores the piglets.... Oh my cuteness... 
(You could also store PJ's in there) 


I made 4 piglets. 


I like that they all turned out a bit different. 
Some fat and round..
other's with big snouts and 
a runt. 


 Look at that little tail... 
I didn't have any yarn so I just braided 3 strands of DMC floss. 




 oink, oink. 


The End... sorry couldn't resist.

Ahhh, SO cute! I saw that on her blog and was tempted...but got scared off by the zipper.

These were not that difficult. The fleece was really nice to sew on and it is really stretchy so you can kind of kind it. Sarah, zippers... don't let them scare you. You can do it. If you have never sewn in a zipper you should start with something like this. She gives amazing step by step pictures with her patterns. You can do it!
