Well, now the pig has a mate who also has a short nose (sorry, snout). It must be the breed of pig they are. Lol.
The cow also has a short nose. Hmmm. Not sure what's going on here. The cow will be getting longer legs. She is far too well-endowed to make do with such short ones. I also have to figure out how to get the udder behind her back leg. The udder is made separately and not sewn in like I have done with the ears. That makes it a bit hard to put it behind the back leg but in front of the green between the legs. She is much more complicated than the pigs. Her tail is a tube of fabric with some frayed acrylic macrame cord for the end of it. I'm not sure about the eyes. I tried it with two eyes but she just looked a bit crazed. She needs just some eyelashes showing on the right side but since she doesn't have any on the left side that might look a bit odd. I also want to make her front leg a bit thicker.
Oh the fun of free-piecing! You need a really good seam ripper. The interesting part is that you never know what they will look like when they are done.
