Once, long ago, pigs could indeed fly. However, these ancient avian piggies were prideful in their giant, lush feathery wings and turned up their snouts at the many land-locked animals they soared above. To be taught humility, their gods removed their wings and cursed them to walk the ground. Since then, enterprising pigs have sought to regain the skies--not to be smug once more, but simply to enjoy the wind through their ears. We celebrate these porcine engineers and their dedication to invention.
This set of 4 patterns is a collection of all of our Flying Pig embroidery patterns to date, plus an extra design. Included are complete patterns for Flying Pig with Balloons, Flying Pig in a Biplane, Flying Pig in a Zeppelin Airship, as well as a bonus Flying Pig in a Hot Air Balloon pattern.
This set of patterns is 23 pages long and includes details on colors and stitches used in the example embroidery. It also has two views of each of the patterns: the original direction and a reversed direction, making it easy to choose which way you want the design to be oriented regardless of which transfer method you prefer. Also included are instructions on all of the stitches used in the samples (the Hot Air Balloon pig has no sample information, just both views of the pattern).
I make clothes for imaginary people during the day (in a professional theatrical costume shop), and make fairy doors, hellpuppy toys, and embroidery patterns by night.
