This is a little late, oh well.
A couple of years ago I decided to make most of my gifts
for family and friends. I actually succeeded this year.
I really enjoy it. The planning, creating and giving of a homemade gift makes me really happy.
This year my favorite was this little guy:
Is he adorable or what? Look at that nose. The designer probably intended it for kids but my sister in law loves pigs so I couldn't resist.
His designer is Helen over at Bustle and Sew. I have been following her blog for a while, she posts lots of crafty stuff. She also has an e-magazine that I subscribed to a couple of months ago. She lives in the UK and the magazines are not only filled with patterns, she also includes little stories from the town she lives in.
I find it very charming, check it out.
So back to the little guy. I have never made a softie before.
He was so easy and fun to make, I already have plans for my next one.
He is pretty small, about 8" long.
Look at this face, the button nose was what hooked me, I think.
