Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Pip is an adorable piglet. He wants to give you a big hug and make you smile! When you sew Pip the Pig you'll be making a well-designed, sturdy, and cute stuffed animal that will last for years to come. Pip is machine washable and meant for real play by real kids!

Pip the Pig is 15 inches tall x 12 inches wide. I like fleece, minky, velour, or other soft fabrics for this project, but you can use whatever fabrics you'd like.

I recommend this pattern for confident beginners. The instructions are written in easy to understand language and every step is accompanied by a clear photo to help you along. The templates are full-size and ready for you to print again and again.
