I Finished the Piggy!!

I bought the pattern for this cutie from Ana Paula
She has some free patterns too, and they are all marvelous. The most marvelous part is that they are easy. I am not exactly great at crochet. The last pattern I tried was supposed to be doll booties, but they turned out to be flat oval coasters. So, if I can do it, you can do it.

My new idea for Christmas is that I am going to make up a bunch of homemade toys and then let my kids "shop" for each other. In a couple of years, the kids might be able to make nice things for each other. At this point, the best they could do is string necklaces for each other. (which we might just do...what a great idea...)


  1. i love her :)
    & what a cute x-mas idea, i can't wait 'till oli & martina are old enought to "copy" you ;)
    thank you *very much* for being so nice & sharing.

  2. One year Johnny made me a necklace out of jolly rancher wrappers and a robot made of plastic spoons. They were pretty sweet
