this little piggy

had been sitting around for a while. and i finally got around to finishing him up.

it is based on a pattern in a book the title of which escapes me - found at our public library. it used up some of an old sheet i was given and a seemingly endless supply of linen we have kicking around. and it has been named petunia.

Very nice. My handwork continues to be put to shame.

"Seemingly endless supply of linen"?!? What a nice problem to have :)

thanks melissa!

it is a nice problem. a perk of my husband's job. we get a lot of discards. 2 almost full rolls of linen currently sitting at the end of our bed!

Very cute! Looks like you're great at softies.

BTW, I think I found a softie pattern for our little swap. :)

if you ever want to trade that linen for something else, let me know!!

i love this pig! the raw edges at the snout are great. i have a pig that is remarkably similar waiting to be stuffed (it's also linen with raw edges).

Tracy! I love, love, love your piglet! I've got to say, one of my favorite softies I've seen in awhile. I love the look of the linen with the raw edges. it is adorable.
Would you be interested in swapping for some of your linen? I was just looking for some on ebay...
I could swap stoneware buttons, pendants in my etsy shop, ribbon (from the outlet)...let me know. I'd love to swap!
