Adoption Pricing
Short haired GPs $15.00
Long haired GPs $20.00.

Baby GP prices. Babies are about half the size of an adult GP. Keep in mind that their markings won't be as exact as an adult.
Baby Short Hair $8.00
Baby Long Hair $10.00


My GPs are made to be anatomically correct (unless requested otherwise) all male GPs made are neutered before they leave my yarn box.

I have 2 ways to do abbys.

With yarn hair (cost $20) This pig is actually an Abruvian (notice the longer butt hair)
http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e289/voodoojoint/rockyroad.jpg

Or Abby's with an ultra fine hair that is super soft and cuddly. These GPs often come out a bit larger then normal (cost $25). Not all colors are available with this type of yarn so I may not be able to do all GP colors
http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e289/voodoojoint/snowflake.jpg


To make you a Cuddly GP I need several pictures of your pig so I can get the markings right. Keep in mind that this will be a representation of your pig and not an exact match. I also need to know the eye color if you want custom colored eyes or you have the choice of pure black eyes (creates a cute doll look)

http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e289/voodoojoint/dolleyes.jpg

If you have a long haired pig and trim it let me know if you want the trimmed look, that your picture will reflect, or the untrimmed hair.

The GPs are adult life size. All Gps come with hay in their mouths so they don't get hungry during their trip to you. The hay can be taken out of their mouths once they arrive.

I take paypal,credit cards, money order, check (it has to clear before I send out your pig) and will ship overseas. To pay by credit card go Here (http://thejukejoint.com/doforguandpa.html)

Shipping cost within the United States will be $4.60 (for the first pound (2 adult GPs) for priority mail with tracking. 3 or more dolls may have extra shipping cost. Overseas shipping will be more, ask for a quote.

A portion of the money will be sent to Cavy Spirit to help with Teresa's rescue and the running of this fabulous site.

I don't know if my Roo would be considered a baby. He's about 3 months. He's alot smaller than the others. You mentioned they are less when smaller?

VoodooJoint

I edited the pricing post to reflect baby prices too. It's at the top of the post.

How do we contact you and get you the pigtures? I would love to order some. Cujo is almost 4 lbs so he make cost me a bit more! Let us know, okay?
Thanks

Just PM me pictures and let me know all the info.

I won't charge extra for extra large Piggies. If people want they can also measure the length of their GP and I will try to get it as close to the exact length as I can.

I am gonna save some money so you can make me 16 of them. I have 15 now but I want one of Holly first. Ly's Godpiggie. I lost her back in Jan 10th. I still miss her. As soon as I get enough money for a short hair baby. She is a abby mix.

Are the piggies washable? I know our live ones shouldn't be bathed too often, but then again, they can groom themselves for the most part.

VoodooJoint
07-04-05, 08:23 am
The Cuddly Cabies are washable. The yarn I'm using for them is acrylic yarn and the stuffing is Polyfill which is hypoallergenic. This means that people with allergies can hug and love these pigs all they want. They will not shrink either and don't easily stain.

If someone is planning on getting one of these GPs for a child under 3 make sure you let me know. I will embroider the eyes on instead of using the plastic eyes. The plastic eyes are well done and should not come off but accidents can happen and I would want to remove the choking potential.

I am also willing to make the pigs in fanciful colors. So if you want a pink Pig, rainbow peruvian, blue dutch, purple dalmation, etc...I will be happy to do it.

AngelsCavies
07-04-05, 10:45 am
I am gonna show you 2 pics that I probably will do once I get enough money. One is Porky for my mom in law. She is in the hospital possibly with another cancer. Porkey is her favorite since we got him.

The other is my precious Holly who was only 3 wks old when she passed away in my arms.

Here is Porky

Here is Holly. She also has a white butt. This is the only pic I have of her but I have one of her butt when she was feeding off of her mum down at the bottom of the first 3.

Holly is the tiny little black baby under her mum who is the white piggie. See her cute lil white bum. so cute.

Hmm..I'd like one as soon as I get the money together. It might depend on the shipping costs. I wouldn't mind having a Shorthaired Cuddly Cavy even though Ginny is an Aby mix. Just having the marking the same would do. We'll I'll see.

Zeander
07-04-05, 06:13 pm
Voodoo i'm so happy you are doing this!! I can't wait to get one. Gotta start saving my pennies!

I don't understand the sizing though. How big is adult and how big is baby?

Ly&Pigs
07-04-05, 09:55 pm
The one I have is like a teenage or adult size piggie and it's pretty good size. It's as big or bigger than some of my adult cavies.

VoodooJoint
07-04-05, 10:16 pm
I don't understand the sizing though. How big is adult and how big is baby?
I strive for "close to life size". An adult is about 9" long a baby would be about half that length.

About 3-4 days. I can crochet really fast.

If you are not too swamped with orders, I would love to get Coco as well. Let me know if you can and I will send you pictures of her. THANKS AGAIN!!!!! :-)

Wow, they're adorable! I might get 2 of my pigs.

What if my pig is medium haired? It wouldn't be accurate to give my Snickers the long or short hair. Maybe it would cost $17.50?

Sorry the price would still be $20.00. It's not the length of the hair; it's the huge amount of work that it takes to do the long hair. Medium hair would be the same amount of extra work.

is under 6 months considered a baby? because I am going to save up my money to get one of Roxy and Lilly hopefully, and they are 3 or 4 months old.

VoodooJoint
07-12-05, 08:14 am
I can make any pig a baby. If you have an adult pig and just want a smaller sized Cuddly Cavy I can reverse time and make it as a baby. Just like I can crochet a baby pig into an adult sized doll. Sizing is all up to you.

Voodoo- I am thinking about getting a Cuddly Simon. Would the crest be impossible?

poozillas41
07-14-05, 06:23 am
I was wondering whether theses cavies can go in the cage with the other REAL cavies? Recees LOVES stuffed toys, but I don't want it to hurt her or Skippy.

poozillas41
07-14-05, 06:25 am
Also, can you do "cow licks" Recees has hair on the top of her head (shes a short hair) that swirls out from a point in the center of her head. (Then the rest of her hair is normal)

VoodooJoint
07-14-05, 07:00 am
I can probably do a head cowlick. It's the all over whorls on Abys that I haven't mastered yet. At the very least it would look like a top-knot of hair.

poozillas41
07-14-05, 08:55 am
OK. Well. My brother and I are going to snap some pics.I want 2 of them (If my dad says yes) I am wondering whether they can go in the cage with the piggies as a toy? Or will it hurt them?

VoodooJoint
07-14-05, 09:01 am
I believe they will be okay in the cage. You just want to make sure they don't chew on them. Chewing will break the yarn and cause unravelling which will also expose the stuffing which they should not eat. I don't recommend putting the long haired crochet pigs in the cage because I can pretty much guarentee that they will chew on the yarn strings.

pigsnchins
07-14-05, 10:22 am
Do you happen to do cuddly chinchillas, too or just the piggies? I have pigs and chins (thus my name), and would love to have cuddly versions of both.

Ly&Pigs
07-14-05, 10:46 am
My experience when I put my Cuddly Baby Elly in the cage was the pigs wanted to chew on her. They actually took a couple bites out of the yarn. If you get the ones that have yarn hair, I wouldn't put them in the cage unless you want them to barber your cuddly pig. Also, I don't think eating yarn would be too good for piggies.

VoodooJoint

I'm sure I could. What color Chin do you have? PM me a picture. I'll see if I can work out a pattern and make one when I have time. If you like it you can buy it. If not I can always put it on Ebay or give it to my kids.

Hi, Voodoo. How is Cujo coming along. Payment should arrive any time now. I am so excited to see him. I have told everyone - my daughter thinks i've lost my mind! I'll have to get more pictures of the other boys for more piggies. I actually had my first piggie that died that I would love a stuffed version of too - his name was Puzzle. Can't wait to see Cujo II.

poozillas41
07-14-05, 03:38 pm
OK. My dad wants to get one for my grandmother (she loves my pigs, but she doesn't want to have to take care of them for more than 2 weeks) So we're going to get a pic of a cute pig off the internet. I'll tell you when I find one.

VoodooJoint

Hi, Voodoo. How is Cujo coming along....Can't wait to see Cujo II.
As stange as this sounds I am working on Cujo's butt now. After that then just his ears and legs which don't take long at all. He should be done this evening and in the mail tomorrow.

Voodoo! I got Cuddly Deacon Jr. in the mail the other day and he is perfect! He will be sent to his new home in Virginia in a couple days.

Thank you!

VoodooJoint
07-15-05, 06:10 pm
Glad you like him. The brown yarn is actually vintage yarn I had been saving. I figured this was a good way to make sure the yarn, and what is made from it, never gets thrown out.

Slap Maxwell
07-15-05, 06:20 pm
And it looks just like the agouti! I am very impressed.

A little more about when you order a Cuddly Cavy.

Besides the pictures please let me know of anything I may be missing. A white belly, a freckle on the chest, what color the legs are, etc... It will help me make your cavy more exactly like you want them.

Here are eye color choices. If you don't let me know what color you want I will choose for you. Don't worry I try to choose what looks best. The solid black eyes give the Cavy a wide eyed "cute" look. The colored eyes will help show off a special eye color the pig has.

The way you guys are keeping me busy the Cavy Cages site and Cavy Spirit site/rescue is gonna make a mint. You folks are going to keep a lot of needy piggies in coroplast and veggies.

VoodooJoint
07-21-05, 10:15 pm
Once I get stared on the GP it takes ~2-3 days. At this moment I have 3 cavies to make so it will be several days until I can get at new orders...it's still all done rather quickly.

I will be making them until my hands cramp up and fall off. I don't expect that to happen anytime soon though.

I would like to have an adult size one made of Rocky Road. I am attaching some pictures of when we first got him so his colors are easier to see. Also, there are some more recent pictures showing his wild hair. I hope that the pictures come through. This is my first time attaching pictures to a post. We believe him to be Abyruvian. If you could kindly let me know where or how to send the money I would appreciate it.

Also, one of my piggers is agouti, so would you be able to do 2 different colors of yarn, or would she just have to be one color. My agouti also has a ridge like Cinnamon, would there be an extra charge for that?

Most likely I can get the two colors in for an agouti. The ridge of hair will be an extra 1-2 dollars depending on how much of a ridge she has.

I love in the first photo how you can compare their "rocky mountain oysters". I tried but I just don't think I did Cujo justice in that department.

Voodoo,

Cuddly Willow I arrived today - she sat grazing at my doorstep waiting for me to come get her. She is awesome! What a great lap piggie! She even likes going for rides in the car! I took her to visit some miniature donkeys this evening, and show her off, of course, and she didn't seem phased by the ride at all.

My husband is snuggled up with her in bed right now (and if he knew I wrote that, he would be appalled!), and he was really touched once he realized that she was the spitting image of the "real" Willow I - she was a surprise to him. She is a wonderful remembrance of Willow I, and we look forward to adopting other Cuddly Cavies (and Chinnies) in the future.

By the way, the girl I work with with the donkeys wants to know if you would do miniature Cuddly horses or goats.

VoodooJoint
07-25-05, 10:52 pm

Coco has arrived! I am soo happy! She is absolutely adorable! She now resides on top of my computer with Cinnamon and Scorch (dragon). Today was the first time I brought my son by my office since I got Cinnamon and he saw him and immediately knew who it was. He was really excited to see Coco because the mail had come before I walked him over to school.

Thanks again Voodoo, they are wonderful. One of my co-workers was wondering if you could do a small version of a dog. A chocolate lab specifically.

VoodooJoint

I can probably do a dog. I'm innundated with GP orders right now though so I don't have time at the moment to work out a pattern.

Yeah Voodoo! I'm quite inspired to take up crocheting! After seeing your slugs (on Pigloo) I went to the craft store to look at yarn! xD I'll probably end up making a big knot, but who knows? I love the texel you did! He's so cute! I wish I had some long-haired pigs for you to make. They look so soft and fluffy! Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind reviews <blush>

A good book to get to learn to Crochet is Crochet Your Way. It teaches you most of the different methods as you make different squares and when you are done learning you sew the squares together to make an afghan...pretty neat way to learn. Once you've made your "learning" afghan it has lots of other projects too.

Ok whew. Thanks. I don't live in a nice neighborhood so my fears are always something precious being stolen...thanks for replying though..I am so anxious..I can't wait to take pics of him and Angel together :)...kind of weird at same time though. And I'm so mad. I was over at my friend's house Brok is buried at and I never got a chance to go say hi...sigh..I had to help her clean her rescue cages..I mean seriously..I dont mind it..but she always has me helping her but I have alot of cages too but if I need her help..she can't grrrrr. The two babies in her rescue(2 weeks old..birthed there)..are getting soooooo big . Well I am drifting again here...sorry. Thanks again though. Oh yeah..how much would you charge for a cuddly rat? same as a baby pig or as a full grown pig? Just curious...oh...and If my friend was being nice to me instead of mean..I'd see if you'd take a look at her precious piggy who died next day after my Brok did...but..when it comes to Long haired guinea pigs?? I think he has any of them beat in time consuming .anyways...take care :)

VoodooJoint
08-08-05, 11:00 pm
At this time I will charge the same as for a baby GP for a cuddly rat. The price may change after I make one or two but since I havn't made a rat before you get a discount. I'm sure I can do it and it will be great...just haven't done one yet.

I would need some specifics about rats since it's been years since I've had them. Like how many toes they have front and back, etc...

All these are so adorable!! I really want one but I'm worried my parents wouldn't go along with the idea. They love my piggy but we're kind of tight on money lately. Moving to a new house and so on... Any ideas for persuading them? I mean, I know it's only 15 bucks, but I'm not sure if they'll think that is too much for a stuffed piggy. I understand that they're handmade and take a lot of effort and all, and I'll try to get my point across but I'm not sure if they'll be convinced.

Lovely work by the way voodoo!! :cheerful:

For those waiting for the word on Abys I think I figured it out.

The abys don't have set rosettes but their short hair can be pushed into rosettes. They will hold their shape unless handled but them you can rework/change the rosets as you wish. I think it makes them fun.

Just a few quick questions... Can you do hamsters, possibly in the sitting up position? Also, these probably shouldn't be used for younger kids to play with right? My nephew is almost two and he LOVES my guinea pigs, but he can't play with them because he's too rough. I figured I'd teach him on one of these the PROPER way to hold a living creature. Thirdly, I have a guinea pig with pretty much short hair, but she has little tufts of hair coming off of her ears. Can you do that on your pigs? Thanks.

Once again, thank you all for your concern for my safety and situation!

I am once again able to take orders for Cuddly Cavies.

While I was in Nawlins I grabbed my yarn and crochet equipment. I'm ready to start rolling again. I will have to take orders one at a time for a while as I don't want people waiting for long periods of time if in case production gets interupted by my return to Nawlins.

I finally managed to ship out my last order of Cavies and I want to thank FuriKuriCavy for her infinite patience in receiving her order. I was about to ship out her order when we evacuated and, thinking I would be back home within a few days, I left them behind. I grabbed her Cavies while I was home and they are now shipped. She should get them within the next day or two.

ZakFoxMom's Auction win of the crocheted Cavy magnet has also shipped out to her. ZakFoxMom deserves everyone's congrats as when this disaster struck she PMed me and told me to not bother worrying about shipping the Cavy and for T to keep the money she paid for it because it was for a good cause. She is an example of a fabulous human being.

Anyway, to answer a couple of questions I have never done a hamster but am pretty sure I can. All I need are the pictures and I can figure it out from there.

I can do tufts of hair on G.P.s

So if anyone is interested just let me know.

A4PigHome
10-14-05, 10:58 am

I'm glad that you're okay and to hear that you will once again be making cuddly cavies. I just reread the post and I'm sorry... I'm retarded... I just saw the post about making them for kids under three and embroidering the eyes instead of using the normal kind. :sorry: I will probably order one for my nephew around Christmas time. I've been wondering what to get him, and this will be perfect. I don't know what I would make his guinea pig look like so I'll probably just let you choose that, but that's a long way away... I would like to order one now that looks like my Gordy.... How many orders do you have to complete? I'll balance my checkbook and see what's going on there and get back with you... If I have to wait a while, that's okay.

I am wide open for work at the moment. No one has to ask permission to start the ordering process. Just let me know you want one, you can even PM or email me the pictures, and I'mm tell you when I can start and when to pay. I just don't want to be holding on to anyone's money without knowing that I can get their Cavy to them soon.

Before the evacuation I was fine with having a lot of orders waiting because I thought I would have plenty of time to get to them. Now things are a bit different and I can't be certain where I will be a few weks from now and if I do manage to get back to my home in New Orleans I may be so busy trying to repair my home and city that I might have to put off making the Cavies for a while.

So feel free to let me know if you want a cuddly cavy made and I'll take it from there.

Thanks,
AmandaAmanda - already have a couple of orders to get through and at this time I don't want to be holding onto people's money until I'm sure I can start working on their order.

When it comes to payment I prefer Paypal, I can take a check but I'm a long way away from my bank right now and I have to mail in checks for deposit which slows things down.

I'll add your name to the waiting list and PM you when I get close to being able to start.

Some things you may want to think about is what shade of blue you want (find a sample color to post if you can) do you want it all one color blue or do you want 2 or 3 shades for a subtle banded look? If you go to Walmart and look at the Red Heart yarns find what color/s you like and make a note of the name of the color and PM it to me. If you find it at Walmart then most likely I can find it near me and I'll pick-up exactly what you want. With the rainbow, do you want bands/stripes or I can probably get rainbow yarn where you will get lots of spots/stripes constantly changing. I can probably find examples to post for you to see.

I ship via Priority Mail. In the United States it will be $3.85 for up to 3 Gps.

Well about the blue you could do different colors of blue, it is my sons favorite color and of course a little boy for him. And the rainbow you could just do the rainbow yarn that one is for my daughter so she will of course need a little girl. I know when you do them they will love them. Take care
Thanks

AmandaOkay, I'll look around for a good varigated blue. If I can't find a good one I'll use 3 shades; the lightest for the head, midshade for the torso and darkest for the butt.

Cotton is the piggy I use for my avatar pic. She has white hair that seems to lie backward from back to front which gave her a tu-tu ballarina effect in the middle. She has a little bit of brown in the corner of her eyes her eyes are red. I am trying to add a picture of her to the post but Im having problems with it.

Hello Voodoo.

I am not a Cavy person myself (although I think they're very cute!) but my good friend is. She lost her pig Zing-a-ling last year.

I am fairly good at crocheting and have been thinking about making a yarn version of Zing for her as a special Christmas present.

I ran across this board thread and am very impressed with your talent. Your patterns are so realistic and detailed to the specific cavy!

This may seem an unusual request, but I was hoping you would be willing to sell me a pattern designed from a picture of Zing. I think you do beautiful work, but I would love to make it myself. More personal you see.

I have been crocheting for most of my life, so the pattern doesn't have to be very detailed in explinations and such. Also, Zing was all white so that should make it even easier!

Rest assured that this is a one-time thing. I do not intend to use your pattern for anything other than this singular gift. I simply can tell that your familiarity with cavies makes you much more qualified to design what I have in mind.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

~Sara

10-22-05, 09:40 am
I had considered selling the pattern but while the body is pretty straight forward the feet get kinda fiddly and I just don't know how I would explain making he toes, foot and then the switch to the leg. I guess I could just change the pattern to make "nub" feet and people could glue on felt feet bottoms for the toes if they want.

I also wouldn't be able to make up a pattern with the color changes. That part I make up as I go for every GP. Basically to make up a pattern with color changes I would have to crochet the GP myself just to count where the color changes go.

My family, friends and I need all the warm wishes we can get.

It looks like I will be back home in New Orleans in about a month. Finally, a plan for home.

By all reports life there is difficult, even in the places that didn't flood. You have to drive at least a half an hour to get groceries and other supplies. The mail is almost nonexistant and I just got news that there is a water leak in front of my house. Seems I have a bit of a bubbling spring issuing from my front parking lot. Looks like it's my problem, not the city's. At least the 4 trees are now off my house. <sigh>

How cute!

VoodooJoint
12-14-05, 12:39 pm
Glad you like them Lilchris.

I made the Harry Potter Griffindor scarf on impulse. I had the yarn sitting in front of me and thought "hmmm...I wonder how one of these pigs would look with a scarf on?". The end result is a Harry Potter Guinea Pig.

I may start offering the scarfs as an add on for those that want. I can also make hats, clothing and other stuff. Right now though I have an awful lot on my plate and don't even want to think about more stuff. Once I'm back at home I will probably start offering up the accessories.

VoodooJoint
12-14-05, 12:41 pm
I guess for skinny pigs I could use a flesh colored yard and add a little fuzz to their faces. I haven't made a skinny pig yet so I'm not sure.

Maybe I should leave an opening in the crocheted pigs and not stuff them so you can pop a skinny pig inside and they can wear an all over body sweater to help keep them warm <kidding>.

Brenda

*Just a lttle note* - For RMS's (My School) Orchestra concert, we are playing a piece called Flambeaux (Pronounced 'Flambo') and it's related to Mardi Gras and stuff. I guess my teacher picked it because of all the hurricanes in LA. I really like the piece, too! Just wanted to share. ;)

I guess my teacher picked it because of all the hurricanes in LA. I really like the piece, too! Just wanted to share. ;)Flambeauxs are the torch carriers in the Mardi Gras parades. Before the time of mobile electric lights and tractors pulling the floats the floats were pulled by mules and were illuminated by Flambeauxs.

Flambeauxs carried table like torches alongside the floats so that the decorations could be appreciated in the dark. They are traditionally black men wearing all white. They often dance along twirling their torches (their gas canisters strapped to their backs). Even though they are no longer needed Flambeauxs still march in the parades with their torches. It is considered good luck and a way of saying thanks to throw money (usually coins) at the flambeauxs who pick up the coins. Flambeax pic and some history here http://www.artsci.wustl.edu/~sjstremb/flambeaux.html

Here are some flambeauxs

I should print that info out that you gave me and tell my teacher about it :D Thanks!

He carried him around quite a bit but when mom went to get the camera he'd sit it on the floor and laugh because he knew we wanted a picture. I brought out one of my real pigs for him to see and she scared him because he was petting her and she moved and he thought she was another cuddly pig...lol. I think the pig's name is "Gary". I kept asking him what he had and he kept saying "Gary".

I will begin making the Cuddly Cavies again as soon as my life allows me to.

Things here in New Orleans are busy. I have a lot of work to do now that I'm back. My home needs extensive repairs, I'm battling the insurance company, I keep getting underground leaks that threaten to flood my house, I'm trying to rebuild my business, help my friends whose houses flooded, helping out at various animals rescues not to mention the fact that electricity and phone/internet cannot be relied on.

By the end of most days I'm so worn out that all I want to do is sleep. Hopefully I will soon calm down and have the energy to start crocheting again.

Meanwhile I have gotten the PMs from people who want to be on the waiting list. I will start contacting people in line once I am able to do the work.

Thanks for the compliments.

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to crocheting the cuddly cavies. I've been very busy down here not only fixing up my own home but I've been spending a lot of my free time helping out others to gut, demolish and repair/rebuild.

Today I rebuilt a kitchen counter, installed a new stove, helped roof a house and helped tear down a damaged brick wall so we can rebuild it. Tomorrow will be more of the same.

My hands, body and mind are so worn out at the end of the day that I usually can't even hold a crochet hook.

Eventually I'll be able to get back to crocheting but I need to give it a rest for just a little while longer.

Meanwhile feel free to PM me to get on the waiting list. I'm keeping those PMs so I know who's next in line.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am again making the Cuddly Cavies. I have contacted everyone on the waiting list I had and can now start taking in new orders.

There are a few people that were on the list that never got back to me and a couple that did but never sent me the picures so I could start working on their GPs. If those of you that haven't sent pictures still want Cuddly Cavies made then please let me know and send me the pictures.

Pricing and types can be found on the first page of this thread.

A percentage of the cost of each doll made gets donated to Cavy Spirt Rescue to help T in her rescue efforts.

Don't forget that if you want a doll made I will need pictures of every angle of your GP. The better the pictures the closer I can get to exact markings. I need pictures of--left side, right side, back, front, top view and a belly shot is good also. I also need to know eye color, boar or sow (if you want the GP anatomically correct) and any other special marking you can tell me about that I might not see. Like a spot under the chin or extra/missing toes.

If you need more pictures of her please let me know. Cookie is an adult and is short haired and Biscuit is still a baby and is short haired as well...she was born in June, if that doesn't count as still a baby please let me know.

If you let me know the exact total I'll send it through paypal if you can also give me the link.

HI Voodoo,

I can't help but ask hehe...I was just thinking it would be just so lovely to have one of your cuddly cavies done of our rescue mascot " William ". He's such a special boy and yeah i could feature your lovely work on our website in Wililams mascot section hehe.

I was just wondering how tricky it would be to do him though as he's kind of an abby cross longhair cross shorthair...
This is William:

I'll snap a few more pictures of Cookie and Caramel tonight and PM you.

Thanks so much for doing this, you are making a lot of people smile. :heart:

I'll have to get back to you a couple of you folks a little later. I have to go out of town for a funeral on Wednesday. I will be back in a few days.

Yes Weaver, I think I can do that hair pattern.

EC - I'll have to give you a quote when I get back.

Judy - Glad you like them. I don't need the pictures myself. I just like to have them to send to anyone that wants a preview of their pigs before they arrive. Audrey may have to grow into that show bow a bit. You can always stuff the net with some fake hair though to fill it out.

Hello, I am new here. I am intertested in your GP's. If I wanted to order two, would you have a problem with shipping them to Japan? My husband is a Marine, and we are stationed here. It is domestic mailing prices? Please let me know.
Thanks ,

Aww, these are so sweet! VJ, when would be a good time to start asking about a couple Easter piggies?!? With Mr. Pigg getting old and Junior already gone I think the kids would LOVE these :)
love,
mom

Hey VJ i never found out if you could do bunny/hamster patterns... maybe I missed your answer? It's very early in the morning and I'm dead tired (and I'm heading out to college in 2 hours) so LOL I'm not sure. If so, I'd like to buy a few via money orders because I can't find my credit card and I haven't been able to set up a paypal because I forgot what address the credit card uses (different houses and P.O.Boxes). Awesome work; I'd love to try doing that as soon as I go to the store and buy sewing etc. supplies, but I'll start off by making cuddle cups to see how well I remember the sewing lessons I took.

Are you still taking orders? I would really like to adopt a few of them. My baby nephew loves my piggy, Brownie, mommy wants to get him one but daddy is being a bit stiff on the idea so I thought one of these would be perfect for him.

Hello,
I am a french girl, who does not speak well, but may I ask you, how to make piggies?
I love piggies ( I have 4 ) Le crochet et les Pépios - Plumô's Photos (http://plumochiffon.multiply.com/photos)
and crochet too!

I hope that it is possible for you to help me to do crocheted piggies
Thank you
