Jillian Jiggs Pigs

 Have you ever read the book The Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs by Phoebe Gilman?
(We are huge Phoebe Gilman fans: The Balloon Tree, Grandma and the Pirates...great stpries) 

Jillian Jiggs was one of my favorite books when I was a little girl and is now one of S's favorites. I had always wanted to make the pigs but never have (there are instructions in the back of the book!).

 S had been asking to make them so I got all the supplies together and we made them while she had a friend over (and T was napping). We started off by reading the story and then got to work making the girls each a pig.

I did all the sewing while the girls picked out buttons for noses and eyes. 
Then they filled the pigs with stuffing.

I hot glued all the pieces on and sewed the cute lil tails. After that the girls were quite antsy to play with their piggies so I didn't bother putting on feet (which was just fine by them and me). 
Here are our finished pigs!

And the two happy pig owners...

 Happy Friday!

Some fineprint: This post was in no way sponsored by any company and/or person. 
It's just a great book and project that I wanted to share.


  1. Super cute pigs and girlies!!! K loves her pig:)

  2. You can see that the girls are having a ball making their piggies - what a fun project! Love the little curly tails on the back of the pigs - soooo cute!! :)
