Piggy Pillow Sewing Pattern

piggy pillow pattern

As promised, I have completed the tutorial and the sewing pattern for the “Be My Valentine – Piggy Pillow”, which was published 3 weeks ago. This time I made a pair for my kids, they love it.

You may not be able to do it in time for this valentine but as I said, if you have love in you, everyday is valentine. Hope you sew some for your loved ones no matter if it is Feb 14.

Besides as a pillow, you can use this sewing pattern to make into other things, for example, pin cushion, smaller softy as gift, or a piggy back pack for little children. Just change the size by reducing or enlarging and modify it to fit into your design. You can even put a magnet on the nose to make them kissing each other, remember to reverse the polarity so that they attract to each other (Thanks to Jackie who left a comment to suggest this). Be creative, the upshot are endless!!! Love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. This is such a great one that i started making it straight away. its really cute so far but i have a quick question, or better said request, could you please elaborate on how you made the nose? i can’t quite understand what you did. thanks in advance.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Sara, for the nose, just run the stitches around, pull to gather, stuff with poly-fill, pull again and tie. Position the nose onto the face and slip stitch it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Wow this is too too cute! TFS ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. This is really a cute pillow. Pretty good color combination used. Maintain up the good function. Thanks for the tutorial.

  18. Hi, thanks for this great tutorial! today i made the piggy pillow for a friend of mine and it turned out super cute!!! here are some pics:


  19. Hi Joanne,
    With your permission I would like to make, and donate, some of your piggy pillows for our local children’s hospital, I know the sick babies would love to cuddle up to something so colorful and soft.
    many regards

  20. hey there! I loooove these!! they’re really cute! when i clicked on the print-out link, the adobe reader popped up. but how do I enlarge the picture? would mean a lot if u’d tell me! thank you!!

    • Some printers do come with enlarge printing to a certain size, for example, it will expand the document 4 times larger and split it into 4 papers printing. If yours don not have this option, perhaps you will need to print it out as normal size then enlarge it by using photocopier.

  22. hi, i know this has been asked and answered but i’m still kinda lost about how you did the nose? i’m so sorry if i’m being annoying or smth… but this is my first time doing this project. hope you could help me. when you stitch around the nose then gathered it, it will be like pouch right??? ^^ THANK YOU.

  23. great !!!!! i love it!!!

  24. I love it. Very cute.

  25. Super cute! A question: why do you use the woven cotton fabric? Is it to help keep the shape? ๐Ÿ™‚ Lisa

    • Hi Cucicucioo, the cotton will help to maintain the shape of the pillow but the main reason is to prevent the poly-stuffing from coming out especially if you are sewing it for little baby.
