I have just finished making this felt stuffy piggy for Shelby.
Shelby is the daughter of a miniature friend Lori from Oh Mini Of Mine. Her daughter Shelby has kidney failure and is recovering from a broken femur. Carey created a web site called Softies for Shelby and is collecting stuffed softies to help cheer up Shelby. The blog is http://softiesforshelby.blogspot.com/
Thinking of an idea was the most difficult, so many possibilities. First I did a line drawing on paper of a pig and cut the various parts of felt and glued it all together with fabric glue. I then built up the ears and other parts with more stuffing and felt. Then I painted in detail with fluid acrylic paints. I haven't sewn this piggy as you would need to for a younger child. I will get this in the mail tomorrow.
Please have a look at the Softies for Shelby blog, people have done such lovely stuffies and Carey is wonderful for suggesting this for Shelby.
