Taylor’s Custom Piggy Pouch

Upon seeing the crochet items Amigami has for sale, particularly the Mushroom Pouches, my longtime friend came to me requesting a piece of custom work.  He loved the idea of a plush lined pouch, and wanted to know if I could make a pig.  This darling piggy pouch is the result.

Made using the spiraling Amigurumi crochet technique, this super soft piggy is made from Lion Brand Baby yarn, and measures about 8″ x 5″.  The ears, feet, and snout were crocheted separately and attached during the construction process, along with the black button eyes (with white embroidery floss).  The pig’s curly tail doubles as a drawstring – when it’s pulled tight & knotted closed, not only does it appear pig-like, it also disguises the pouch’s opening!

The inner liner is actually a continuation of the crochet work.  Once the opening is completed, I simply continue crocheting a tapered oval shape, then turn  it inside-out into the pig and use the yarn’s slack to tack it down through the snout.

This little pig is super cute, and I’m absolutely inspired to delve further into the animal kingdom.  If you have any ideas for my next animal pouch, please share!
