Piggie & Gerald Crochet Dolls

Piggie and Gerald Hand Crocheted Dolls

One of the projects that I worked on during this Christmas break was some Gerald and Piggie dolls/figurines for my son. He is a HUGE Mo Willems fan (he even had a Piggie and Gerald themed birthday party this year: read about it here and here.)  If you don't know who Piggie and Gerald are then go to the library!! The Piggie and Elephant Books by Mo Willems are my son's absolute favorite. He has read every book about 30 times each. So I thought that some little cute figurines to act out their adventures would be a great idea for him. Here is what I came up with...

They are made entirely from my own pattern, (really proud of myself, this is my first).
I am going to make another set to sell on Etsy, hopefully it goes faster than this trail and error first set I made. I might even sell the pattern after a few more sets (need to make sure that the pattern makes sense.)

The dolls are crocheted with felt eyes (and mouth for Piggie). I embroidered Gerald's glasses and mouth and Piggie's snout and eyebrows.

  4. These are incredible! If your pattern isn't ready yet, I'd be willing to test it and give you feedback. I'd love to make these for my son for his 5th birthday.
