Cute Little Piggy Upcycle Made From an Old Skort

Today as I was browsing the wide world of blogs I saw a cute stuffed monkey that someone had made. Well of course I got the urge to make a stuffed animal myself. In my room full of fabric/clothing/etc. I found this old Skort which my mum had given me along with other old clothing. I had found this really fun (and FREE) pattern online by Runo. I knew right away that I was going to make a floral pig. Well I must say that while I am pleased with my little piggy, it is not nearly as good as those displayed in the tutorial. I'm sure practice makes perfect. That snout was sure tricky!!

The Skort. I only used the front skirt panel for this pig so I have lots of fabric left over.

Side view of my precious little pig. His back leg is not really squared off, I think it is just how he is sitting on the couch.

Oink! The snout was tricky, but this pig is also a lot smaller than the site actually tells you to make it. Ideally you should use A4 paper when printing the pattern but my printer does only standard sheets and I haven't got access to a photocopier at the moment. Super cute nonetheless!
