Naughty Doggy

.

Okay so I had this bright idea that I was going to make stuffed animals and sell them on Etsy. I'm trying to do whatever I can to make some extra cash since our situation is pretty dire. I had never done this before so I made a pig first and I will admit that it was not good enough to sell probably, but still...

For my first attempt it was not that bad. Well I tried to learn from my mistakes on this one so that I could make another one that was better and sellable. The material was some that my mom gave me so I wasn't really out any money. All week my chihuahua, Scorpion, (hey my 5 year old named him so give me a break), had been eye balling my pig. He has a thing for stuffed animals.
Oh Yes! See those eyes...they were staring my poor pig down. So we all decided to go outside for a nice little distraction. Until it started downpouring, I mean buckets!, without notice...What the hell? Weatherman you are fired! So we all got inside nice and soaked. Well when things calmed a little, what do you think I saw?
That little drowned rat grabbed my piggy and ran with him. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but piggy's leg is definately broken and he'll never be the same again. Maybe I should make dog toys instead?

It looks like Scorpion wanted a friend! What a cute doggy. And I think the pig turned out nicely.

Hiya Grace!
Your little pig is adorable! Looks really ed hardy-ish. My kids love ed hardy and I think if you had more of the tattoo fabric, you could be on to something:) Maybe little stuffies that teenagers(and even pups) would really enjoy getting/receiving. It's kind of a cool theme, you know?
Best of luck in your new endeavor! Many sales to you:)
~Take Care,
Christine

LOL ... that is too funny!

Thank you so much for the follow! I'd return the favor if you had a follow-me gadget!

I look forward to hearing from you!

I think you might be on to something with the stuffed animals for pets and humans. Maybe you could do a combo thing.

That is so cute! I think you should start selling on Etsy. I have been on there for two years and I love it.
