Gl├╝cksschwein Guide

That's what you need for the lucky pig:

  • sheet of paper
  • Felt in pink and gray (per piggy 15 x 30 cm)
  • pencil
  • French chalk
  • fabric scissors
  • Sewing machine and Garrn
  • pins

And that's how easy it is:

1. Draw out a piggy-style motif of approx. 14 x 13 cm size on a piece of paper and cut it out.

2. Cut the felt in half so that squares measuring 15 x 15 cm are created.

3. Transfer motive with the tailor's chalk to a felt square and cut out.

4. Draw a line for the slot (4 cm). Sew a line around the line (1 x 4 cm). Carefully cut out the slot.

5. Place the cut piggy on the other felt square and fix with pins.

6. Sew the pig with 0.5 cm margin on the square.

7. Trim the edge properly.

8. Fill the pigs as you like.
