Louise’s April Blog – Day 6 – Finished object

April Blog Day 6 Hello,

I have sewn my Plum pudding pig together :-) Really pleased with the finished result.  The pattern was from the Dovestone Smallholding by Ella Austin pattern book, we still have a few in stock.  In this book there are patterns for different animals and a blanket, very tempted to make the hen.

The pattern recommends using baa ram ewe yarn, which is great but I wanted to use something very child friendly incase I need to wash it in the washing machine.  I had some oddments of Stylecraft Special dk in Mushroom and Grape which made a great contrast for the colour work.

Have a lovely weekend,
