Juggling pigs.

My little brother turned eighteen at the beginning of this month. He's liked pigs since he was a wee little thing, and goes through phases of liking various forms of juggling, so I made him a set of juggling pigs.

The pattern is great, it's simple and takes no time to make. that said, I did have to fudge it a little. It requires felting for the snout and ears, which I don't know how to do and hadn't allowed time to learn. My improvised ears look passable though. I also stuffed them with intact juggling balls rather than beans, for fear they'd leak.
