Basic supplies for this project include:
3 color variations of pink felt White and Pink Perle Embroidery Thread (Optional) Black Felt Dowel rod (12 inches) bamboo skewer Glue (I used a glue gun) Pink pipe cleaner for tail Scissors Embellishments (ribbon, yarn, tulle, pieces of flower from the Dollar Store, faux gems)
Cut out all the pieces from your felt. Feel free to make adjustments to give your pig its unique character. Lengthen or shorten the nose, switch up the eyes, or adjust the size of the hooves. I decorate the front of the pig with the eyes, nose pieces, and hooves before gluing the body together. I add stitching to the ears and nose for a more finished look. The mouth can be a half circle or triangle shape with one stitch. To make the pig look neat from the back, I glue the ears together and affix them to the front piece of the body before gluing the back piece to the front. I also glue the stick and the tail onto the inside back piece before laying the front on top.
The trick to both the pig and the crow (see the previous post) is to take your time, gluing slowly from the top of the pig down toward the stick. I don’t use a lot of stuffing, just enough to keep the stick from showing through the front of the pig. You don’t have to add the stick if you don’t want to. I just found it a unique way to display my magickal felt creatures. Complete your piggy by adding an abundance petition, a small gemstone, and herbs of your choice to enhance the good fortune energy of your work before gluing completely closed.
My formula for the Abundance Piggy: Cinquefoil, Poppy, Chamomile, Clove, Holy Basil, Peppermint, Spearmint, Ginger, and Safflower Petals
