I'm making a pair of pig-softies for a sweet girl and her baby brother. Weeeeel.....first I cut all the fabric and then I started on the girl piggy. It all went fine, until the stuffing: She burst! The felt kept expanding and I kept filling...poor thing! Then I tried to *operate* on her - doing a little *plastic surgery*. Oh my...her face got really big and weird, but I kept going! Adding a (to big) snout, messing up my stitching and now I can feel my vanity lurking: "Don't give her away - don't show her to anyone!" Wow...do I feel that? Well my son agrees, that she's ugly, but my daughter think she's wonderful and I know she funny, but I wanted her to be cute and adorable, y'know? The fabric was chosen thereafter. MmmmmmmK............I'll let you see her!
(I've tried to *spice her up* a bit, by adding some trim, that Risa send me - lovely colors, no?)
Her piggy brother, turned out the way he was supposed to and he took *no time* to make.
If I have time to make another girl, I'll make one to match him. I'm meeting Siiri and Vinski's mother - Annu - next week, so I don't have much time. I'm also working on paper cuts, but have really enjoyed making these softies after all!
The Happy Couple.
