  • Just like in the second picture, you should have a single piece.
  • Run the pair of scissors through the middle of the piece of sock and cut to form two legs.
  • Use a suitable thread and needle, sew in the inside part of the cut piece to form the legs. (see third picture).
  • Sew the bottom of the legs and stuff your body with the cotton stuffing’s. (see fourth picture).
  • On the same sock that you hived out the piglet’s body, use the pair of scissors once more and cut out the piece that covers the toes, cut off the sock from the area where the toes are attached to the foot.
  • Stuff this piece (see  picture number 5) and sew it off.
  • Use the pins to form a face. Stick one pin on the left side and another on the right side to form a depression that will make the base of the eyes.
  • At the bottom on the stuffing, stick three different pins at different sections to form the depression of the piglet’s mouth. (see picture number 6).
  • Cut three small pieces of sock and stack the together to form a layer. Place them on top of the face. Use three pins to hold the nose into position. First pin should go on the left, second at the middle and third at the right to hold the nose into place (picture number 7).
  • Cut two more pieces of materials, roll them to form the ears and hold them into position with pins. (see picture number 8).
  • Using the stems of the pair of socks, sew each stem on one side, stuff them with cotton stuffing’s, sew the open ends and use pink pins to pin them on the piglet’s body, where the arms need to go. (see picture number 9).
  • Now use two pieces of ribbon and form suspenders that you will hold into place with buttons you will saw on the piglet’s belly and back.
  • Sew two more buttons on the eyes to bring out the facial structure of the piglet.
