Sir Francis

This pig stands almost a foot tall, and it was fun to make something larger than a miniaturized elephant or vegetable/fruit product. My girlfriend's dad suggested that I mass-produce my pigs by getting them assembled overseas. Until that day, these woowork creations will be handmade by Woo!

For this photo shoot, I visited Maplewood Farm, where farm animals are on view for kids of all ages. During the shoot, three different children snatched the pig and almost walked away with it. One child saw the pig and urgently whispered to her
dad: "take it!" If my overseas mass-production crochet-pig factory opens, I now know my target demographic is 3-year-olds.

The farm's potbellied pig is named Petunia. My pig's name is Sir Francis.


  1. Super cute, Howie! Keep up the good work.
