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. And sometimes in lieu of actually taking to the skies oneself, it's enough just to go fly a kite. This Pig Flying a Kite pattern is 12 pages long and includes details on colors and stitches used in the example embroidery. It also has two views of the pattern itself: 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 sample, as well as instructions on how to transfer the pattern in various ways. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY separate embroidery floss mount fabric into an embroidery hoop thread a needle SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 7" x 5", but it can easily be scaled up or down with your computer or copier.
