This Little Piggy
I thought I'd try a pig just for fun. He needs some work. His nose is too short and I have to figure out a different tail. The tail is made from a bit of polar fleece cut with the stretch and then stretched so that it curls. I think a small tube of the same fabric as the rest of the pig would look better and it needs to be set into the seam. The biggest problem with this type of free piecing, is remembering to make everything half an inch bigger than the finished size. I thought the nose was ridiculously long and pointed but when it was done, it didn't really look like a pig's nose at all. The ear needs to be more pointed and I will set it into the seam so it will stand up more.
If this keeps up, maybe the people will be Old MacDonald and his wife.
