These Little Piggies Are Going to England!

There were lots of scraps of fabric leftover from clothes I had sewed for Evie and Canaan (my grandchildren who live in England).  So I decided to cut 3-1/2" squares from the fabric, sew them together to make two pieces large enough to cut out the pattern for the two Pigs! 

The pattern for the pigs was a 1967 Simplicity.  Of course, the instructions were missing but it wasn't too hard until I lost the pig's ear pattern and had to improvise.

I found a pattern for making the curly tails and made a red one for Canaan's pig and a pink one for Evie's pig.

So....these lucky little Piggies are going to England to play with Canaan and Evie!
 Pink Pig for Evie
 Blue Pig for Canaan
Cute Little Piggies!

It's off to England they go!

  4. Those are so cute. I have seen quilt blocks made into bears, but never pigs. They are so much more fun!

  5. What adorable little piggies! I love the curly tails. I made a patchwork pig which is quite similar from a sewing book, wonder if it's the same pattern.
