There Must Be Something More to Us...

So, there we were at Target, and what do I see but Charlotte's Web for $5.00.
Since it was one of my favorite movies as a kid (tied with The Secret of NIMH) I snapped it up.
The Youngest has been thoroughly enjoying it, and the other day she saw my go-to book of toy patterns and pointed out Wilbert on the cover.


(Yeah, it is Wilbur, but she will not be convinced of that fact.)
This morning I had an extra hour or so, so I whipped up the Wilbert toy in time for our early birthday party with the grandparents. I used all stash fabric and stuffing, so her present was free!


She caught me in the act of sewing on the eyes, so it wasn't a surprise, but I think she likes him.

That is Some Pig! But really, gorgeous. Did you use a pattern or just make it up as you went. I love it!

Hi Mamabyrd!
The link wasn't cooperating earlier, but I fixed it now. The pattern is from Soft Animals A to Z by Carol Vosberg Hall.
I have made so many of these patterns, and I love them all. Well-written, and cute once made up. I would highly recommend this book.

Oh my goodness! My pig loving girl would love one just like him! The Secret of NIMH was one of my favs (as well as Charlotte's Web), too! Still is :)

How long did it take you to "whip" that up? So very cute!

whipped it up??? yikes! that would have taken me at least a whole weekend. No, longer. It would have probably taken the whole weekend to just find the sewing machine!

He is gorgeous! My boys were just watching Charlotte's Web today as I read it to them last week. It is a lovely movie.

He's wonderful! I still don't think I've seen the new version of Charlotte's Web.
