I have a plush piggy toy that I purchased very long ago. Cannot remember when and where was it. The only thing that I recall was I bought it because the piglet looked so cute with its chubby chins at two sides of its nose. One thing about soft toy is you never get too tired looking at them, the cute faces just melt all your troubles alway.

I have recently made a crocheted pig followed the design of the plush piggy. It took me quite a long time to figure out how to crochet the two fat chin beside the nose. Although it turn out not as chubby as the origin one, I’m quite satisfy with the outcome. I’ve also made a pinky hat to match my piglet. Both piggy and piglet are now standing side by side looking at me.

So which one you like more? Any buyers for my pink piglet?

To all mothers in the world, “Happy Mother’s Day!”

To celebrate these days, I have made 3 crochet figurine doll to all mothers in my family: my mother, my sister and my sister-in-law.

This is the first time I’ve made such a small doll using a 4 ply yarn for the head and hands and 8 ply yarn for the hair and the body. The size of the dolls are from 4-5 inches tall. The hair was made to fit varies head sizes and to portray different style of mother in my family. My mother, the grandmother has a tied bun. My sister has dark straight shoulder length hair that has a hair clip put on it. My sis-in-law has long piggy tail hair with a flower pin on top.

The style of hands are quite different too to show more of their lively characters. I tired to make them to stand on their own by making two feets for some of them. The results are quite satisfy and I really love my own creation.

I’m going to make another two more for my brother and bro-in-law for father’s day celebration. See if it fits the mothers as a pair. Really looking forward to it. 😛
