Isn’t this cute? I made it for my new baby cousin. I have another one in the works for Doodle’s new nephew, but I didn’t get it finished before we went to Portland so I will just have to mail it. I also didn’t finish Atlas and Krystopf’s blanket before their wedding, either. Seems deadlines are not my thing this summer.
Also whenever I hear the word PIG I think of that scene in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure when Napoleon is at the Ziggy Piggy restaurant and he finishes off that mammoth sundae and the servers present him with a special badge and they chant “zeeegy peeegy, ZEEEGY PEEEGY, ZEEEEGY PEEEEGY!” and then they oink a lot.
I love eighties movies. Fashion, movies, politics … all those things really sucked in the eighties. But the movies? They were choice, as Ferris Bueller would say.
This one was a little trickier to sew than the chicken, what with all the limbs and all.
Plus there were pipe cleaners involved.
And I stuffed it with scraps of felted wool instead of cotton batting.
And I think I messed up the ears.
But it’s cute, right? You might recognize the pattern of the wool from the “keystone” in Doodle’s afghan.
