Tell us about your pigs.
I found a vintage soft toy book at an op
shop by author Hilda Hincks. I had 9 special kids to make Christmas presents
for and the presents all needed to be the same, so none were less special than
the others. Once everyone saw the pigs they all wanted one, I am now on piggy
The fabric is a vintage 1950’s blanket from
my Aunt, who was of the mend and make do generation. The thread was also
inherited from my aunt, the only new supplies are the embroidery thread and
Each piggy has his own outfit that caters to
that child’s interests. One has a whole wardrobe of clothing choices.
How are the pigs are made?
I sewed each body part individually
here at the sewing group.
I hand sew the ears on first, followed by the
head to the body and the arms go on last.
I then use embroidery thread to
make the nose and eyes.
The finishing touch is a little
Brigid and another happy customer!
If you liked Brigid’s Percy The Pig come
visit us at the sewing group. We have a
photocopy of the book and it has many more fantastic animals to choose from.
