Pig (Not) On Wheels

Is it just me, I never know how to start these posts? :D

Anyway, I've been doing ok on the craft front lately. Not gotten anything major done but been doing a little each day, even if it's only a tiny bit. Although, I did get in a right paddy Saturday evening. I'd bought some black embroidery thread earlier in the week for doing the faces on my felt food and I couldn't find it anywhere or for the life of me remembered where I'd put it! Never did find it either so to cheer myself up I went to Hobby Craft on Sunday, I had forgotten how expensive it was in there >_< Well I managed not to buy TOO much, just a few specific bits and pieces I'd been wanting, plus more black embroidery thread which cost 4 times more than the original lot!

The main thing I started this week was a felt piggy from this tutorial/pattern, however I've noticed one thing, he doesn't have a tail! How can you have a pig without a cute little pink curly tail? So I think it might be fun to make him one out of a pipe cleaner. Plus I also plan on using googly eyes instead of the buttons. I've got as far as cutting out all the pieces at the moment.

Actually, maybe it's even harder to think of a way to finish? Let me know if you have any advice on how to do this please ^_^
