Now, that it is November, everyone is getting into Christmas mode. And, what could be cuter to hang on your Christmas tree than these little pig ornaments?
Last year, I created my Chicken Ornament pattern and uploaded it to Ravelry (this was before I started my blog) and it had over 500 downloads. I almost couldn’t believe it!
So, this year to accompany the chicken ornaments, I made 2 new farm related ornaments. The pig and a red barn (the barn pattern will be released soon 😉
But, these aren’t only ornaments. They could be used for kitchen decor or many other things.
