A couple of weeks ago I shared my Felt Flower Book Hugger Bookmarks. {here}  Originally I was inspired by Nancy at Do Small Thing with Love.  She has an easy to follow tutorial (complete with a pattern) {here} on how to make a Cow Book Hugger.
One night when I needed a distraction from the stress of house hunting I whipped up my own Cow Book Hugger.

This is going to be a “just because” gift for my college roommate, B.  She grew up on a dairy farm and I always had such a wonderful time visiting her family on the farm.
I was so pleased with how the cow book hugger turned out (and I still needed to be distracted from the stress of house hunting) that I decided to make a pig book hugger.

You don’t need a pattern, just cut an oval for the head, a smaller oval for the snout, 2 smaller circles for eyes, and 4 total triangles for the ears.
The pig looks a little crazed, but it makes me smile.  It looks like how I was feeling when I made it.
Next time I’m stressed I plan on making a chicken to add to the farm.  But for now, I really like these two guys.

  2. Thanks. These guys are totally addictive. I just need to find 20 “free” minutes to tackle the chicken one I have in mind.
