I made this pig bag for my niece-in-law who's 2 this year. The pig pattern is under Spring 2007 catalog. You can find the pattern on your LYS.

The pattern is pretty easy to follow, the only downside is the lining, handles, and of course ZIPPER. But the pattern has good instructions on how to attach the lining, handles, and zipper, and it even has a tutorial on its website.

And... who can resist this cute curly pig tail? ( I instantly bought the pattern when I saw the tail) :happydance:

Thank you. Me too. It's for a birthday present though, and it was hard to let it go.

HI ritaw. The pattern is from Noni Designs. http://nonipatterns.com (http://nonipatterns.com/)
If you go under store locator on the website, click search internationally. put your country. You should see a list of stores in UK that sells noni patterns.

Making a bag is actually fun. I can say that because I'm a bag person.

That is BEYOND CUTE! I've got a 2.5 yr old dd who would not only play with that purse but would probably demand that she take it too bed as well. That said, I'm sure the little 2 year old (I'd have a very difficult time letting it go as well) will do the same.

VERY cute. WTG!:woot:

Ok, that is too cute for words! :inlove:

I simply must make one. Let me add that to my already ginormous list of projects :teehee:

Really great work!

Oh for goodness sakes! I need to stay out of this forum because I'm always seeing more things I want. That is just the cutest thing! :yay:

You did such a great job and I'm so impressed with the finishing (face, lining, handles). Your little niece is going to love this!

:yay:

That is simply cuteness. But will a mere 2 year old appreciate all your hard work? I hope she likes it.

Oh my gosh!! That is just SOOO Cute!! :eyes: And I can just envision a sweet 2yr old carting it around too! Well done! :woot:

How long did it take you to make it? I think I'll have to look for the pattern for my girls (soon to be 2y and 6y). Their Halloween costumes this year are going to be flying pigs (where does the 6y come up with these ideas? I just thank my lucky stars Grandma signed up to make the costumes!!) A cute pig purse would compliment the outfit well and be cute to use afterwards too -- maybe I could even give it little wings!

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I didn't think the purse would get that much response. Love this group. There's so much community and friendship.:woot:

It took me about 1 week to make. That's including the lining and stuff. Most people say you don't have to make the lining, and just attached zipper and handles.

I don't have a real job yet, so I do knit quite fast in order to catch the birthday date for my niece-in-law. But I think if I do have a job, I'm thinking about 1.5 weeks to 2 weeks.

The body is not that hard to make really.
I used Cascade 220 in Tutu color. 3 skeins. and for the eyes and nose, I used leftover Cascade 220 in dark color like jet.

A pig with wings would be super duper cute.
