PIG'S IN A "FELTED" BLANKET


This is another way to reuse or redo felted crochet or knitted wool.
My version of “Pigs in a Blanket”. You won’t be serving these little porkers at any cocktail parties,
but you’ll squeal with delight at how much fun they are to make.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
FLAT FELTED PIECES OF PINK AND CREAM FELT. (1 SQUARE 4"X4" PINK , 1 SQUARE 4"X4" CREAM) *YOU CAN MAKE THEM SMALLER OR LARGER.
2 TINY CIRCLES OF PINK FELT FOR THE EARS. 1/4" OR SMALLER
OVAL SHAPE PINK FELT FOR THE NOSE (YOU'LL HAVE TO EYEBALL IT FOR SIZE).
SCISSORS
NEEDLE AND THREAD
GLUE
BLACK BEADS FOR NOSE
PLASTIC EYES

PIGGIES IN A FELTED BLANKET WITH
A SIDE OF SUNNY-SIDE-UP EGGS AND
SAUSAGE…

HERE'S HOW:
Use the picture as a guide.
For the Piggy part you take your pink square and roll it from side to side. Sew together.
Then take the cream or contrasting color felt for the Blanket and wrap it around the Piggy (wrap like you would a pastry). Sew together.
Then you take the tiny pink circles for the ears and just pinch them and place a stitch to secure them so they stay curved and then sew them in place.
Now glue the oval pink nose and sew or glue the little black
beads for the nostrils.
Now add the eyes with glue.
There ya go, “Piggies in a Felted Blanket”.
