Meet Art, No Ordinary Pig

Meet "Art," so named because he's no ordinary pig. He's an art pig. You can tell from those cool polka dots. He's also a good listener. He's interested in everything.

This was a gift from my sweet friend Lauren in New Jersey. She can really handle a needle. Thank you, Lauren. :)

I've been interested in softies since I first saw the book "Stupid Sock Creatures" by John Murphy. His website is fantastic too. You might also like the magazine "Stuffed" by Stampington. To see more books about making lovable creatures from socks, gloves, and old sweaters, click here.
