The bookpiglet is an adaption from the bookmonsters instructable I made earlier.
This project is sewed by hand and really isn't hard to make!
Step 1: Cut out the shapes
- Felt and thread in black, white, red and (dark) pink
- (Fabric) scissors
- Needle and pins
To make a bookpiglet you will need to cut out eyes and pupils, a nose and it's nostrils, cute ears and a square and triangle for the head. Last but not least, don't forget the tail like I did at first.
I have made a template available that you could use, or you could wing it ;)
I used a darker pink thread (second from the bottom, and from the left, in picture 4) so it would stand out nicely against the felt. But with your colour of felt a red thread might just be prettier, just check it out and see what would be nice.
When you are using a cutout from the template you can attach it with a paperclip in a paper-felt-paper sandwich, so it doesn't slide away. Or use a little peace of tape you roll up and stick between the felt and paper (so you don't cut into the tape with your fabric scissors).
Step 2: The pupils
Look at the pictures to see how you could do this.
Step 3: The nostrils
The stitch I used can be seen in the last pictures.
