Yes, yes, yes, I am aware the expression is a "pig in a poke" but it is cuter this way.
For those of you who asked for more information about needle felting and the creation of piggys, this post is for you!
I even made a video so you can watch the process. Um, please ignore my munchkin voice and the fact I sound like an idiot.
Needle felting a piggy
Here is the finished ovaly type thing I need for his body.
I made the other pieces separately, and then using the same, poke, poke, poke technique, I attach the pieces. Here is his nose attached to his face.
Next I poke holes for his eye sockets, and then I add black wool to make his eyes.
I needle felt his ears separately, and then poke them onto his "head".
Here he is with his ears.
I do the same thing with his legs, I make them separately, and then needle felt them onto the body. The hardest part is trying to match them for length and circumference. I threw away two legs that didn't make the cut in the leg auditions.
I twist some wool, poke it a bit to make it stay twisted and then I poke it onto the pig's body for his curly tail. Here he is, finished, from the side. I am not entirely happy with the tail thing, so I am working on another way to make his tail curly. We shall see how it works.
And this is his finished self. Cute, huh? This is an original design by me.
Oink, oink. Piggy enjoyed the very nice first day of Spring we got in Utah. Good thing, it is supposed to snow again on Monday. Wahhhhh!
