Puppets! Stitch up an easy finger puppet pig--this paper pattern will take you step-by-step through the basic skills for stitching toys, and show you how to make a finger puppet in an afternoon or two.

This pattern is a great choice if you want to learn to sew, with instructions that are designed to be beginner-friendly. You can use a sewing machine or sew completely by hand. But there's plenty here to keep more experienced sewists busy, too--lots of costumes and accessories to add to your pig to give it character and flair!

Finishing at 4 inches tall, these piglets will fit right into the standard 1:12 standard dollhouse, or just sit adorably on your desk.
This listing is for a printed pattern/tutorial that will come to you in the mail: 20+ pages of fully illustrated instructions (including how to prep boiled wool) and patterns for the pig, costumes, accessories, and cardstock stand.

Please note: pigs have small parts and are not suitable for children under 3. Children under 10 who don’t already have a bit of sewing experience will most likely need adult accompaniment in order to succeed.
An easy sewing project for beginners and skilled crafters (maybe oldsters and youngsters?) to work on together, it’s quite likely to turn into a family tradition.
