This little piggy wants to play!

What do you say to a sweet girl who's dearest wish is to spend her birthday playing with her BFF cousins? You say, "Let's PARTY!"
This little piggy was crocheted especially for the birthday girl. She loves piggies and we are happy to indulge her.
We are also bringing decorations to make piggy cupcakes once we get there. This is a mock up that I made on the bottom of a coffee cup. The ears were made by cutting a strawberry marshmallow on the diagonal and dipping the cut end into pink colored sugar. The snouts were made by cutting a marshmallow in half and the nostrils were mini chocolate chips. Those have a tendency to melt really fast so they didn't work for the kids. Erin used some gel frosting instead but mini M&M's could also work. And in honor of Hatchick's birthday, we will leave you with some porcine humor because these little piggies gotta fly!
