This Little Piggy...

The past couple of days I have been trying my hand at sewing stuffed animals. Cory's friend and his wife just had a baby and I wanted to send something handmade instead of something store bought. I first tried to make little baby blocks (you know, the square fabric blocks for babies?). Well, that went OK... but I just wasn't thrilled with the way it turned out. I mean, it was fine... but I didn't have any desire to make any more. So I turned my attention to a pattern I had gotten for my birthday last year. Cute little stuffed animal elephant, pig, cat and giraffe. I liked the pig... so I decided to go for it!

After a few tries, I think I decided which one I'd like to send.

I hope they like it. It's definitely not perfect... but I still think it's cute!

Cory and I decided to color Easter eggs last week to take to his parents house for Easter. We decided to make one for ourselves, but didn't want to give his parents a carton with one egg missing! So we decided to try coloring a brown egg from our chickens...

Not too shabby!!

I hope you all had a great Easter!


  1. Your stuffed animals are ADORABLE! I love love love your fabric choices.

  2. The pigs you made look fantastic!!!! I love them! Homemade gifts are the BEST! :)

  3. Great post! Love the little piggies! Hummm are you Katy's sister? I follow her blog as well and I am sure I read a while back about her helping to prepare for your wedding... if not my mistake! Love your blog... I look forward to 'following' along! ☺
