This little pig plush pattern came about when I had my son and wanted to create a felt animal farm of realistic looking toy animals, based on the Waldorf and Montessori styles. Most animal patterns are overly cute and I wanted something that mimicked real life, so my son could start to identify realistic animal features. Using our felted animal pattern, you can make your DIY plush pig to start a farm animal toy collection!
If you’re new to hand sewing stuffed animals, you’re in for a treat! This felted animal pattern whips up super quickly and can be made in just an afternoon or two. With all felt projects, minimal fabric is used making this a great stash busting project.
The felt pig pattern uses chenille wire to give the pig structure to stand on his feet, and put a little curl in his tail. An embroidered snout and curved ears give this little pig such personality. And the eyes are embroidered using a French Knot.
