I previously showed you the knitted piggy parts so I’ll skip ahead to the felting.
I ran the hot water:
Drank some beer:
checked the progress:
Threw in some baking soda because it was taking a long time:
Ate some pizza:
Used our specially designated felting tongs:
To check the progress again:
I finally decided it was done enough. No. Chichi’s not “properly” felted but he’s dern cute. (this is also why you shouldn’t leave me alone in the basement with a camera…)
Today, it was time to sew him up.
I did take pictures along the way but will spare you all but one:
Should you ever need a pattern for a bizarre looking alien blob, I would recommend a modified Chichi.
the Finished Pig:
All in all, I had a great time making Chichi. I think next one I make I’ll use larger needles to aid the felting a little and sew on all of the parts before felting. And maybe actually make her piggy colored. Oh, and I’ll keep in mind that I still need to sew up the stuffing hole so maybe I’ll get the parts sewn on a little more evenly.
