Ever need a little bit of cuteness to brighten up your day?  Your home?  Your office?  Meet the first in the Bitty Bumble series:  A Crochet Pig.crochet pigRemember when I made the bitty bumble bee?  Well.  It got me thinking.  Wouldn’t it be fun to make a whole bunch of little stuffed pieces of crochet goodness?  And wouldn’t it be fun to give the whole series a fun name… like ‘Bitty Bumble’?  And then I found this cutie patootie button and I was a goner.

So I’d like you to meet the first in the Bitty Bumbles Series:  A Crochet Pig.crochet pig

This is a small little amigurumi that I’m calling Bitty Bumbles.  You can make them and collect them for yourself or give them away.  Brighten up your desk space at work.  Stuff someone Christmas stocking.  Make them for young or old alike.

Easy. Fun. And cute as can be!  Ready to make a crochet pig?

  1. These ideas Are Very Impressive thanks for helpful ideas I am very very happy to see this because you give me creative ideas.

  2. I’m excited to try and make my first AMIGURUMI animal. I’m kinda new to making the stuffed adorable animals. All I’ve made is blankets. Time to move on to bigger and funner things! Thank you!

  3. So cute! I made your moose for a friend and just finished the pig. I used some blue yarn for eyes and made a round of four for the snout. I love it!
    Wish I could post a picture of it!
