Needlework for the New Year of 2019 do it yourself
To start thinking about handmade gifts by the New 2019 is worth it in advance. Of course, the most commonplace option would be to go shopping a week before the celebration. However, if you really want to surprise your loved ones, then there is nothing better than a handmade souvenir. Since the year of the Yellow Pig is coming, the crafts in the form of this animal will be the most relevant. Let us dwell on the most interesting ideas that do not require special skills.
For needlework, it is not necessary to spend money on the purchase of expensive materials. To create a Pig for the New Year of 2019 with your own hands, it is enough to find two unnecessary socks in the closet - one monophonic and the other with a pattern. Also for the manufacture of a souvenir will need:
- two buttons for the eyes;
- two buttons for the snout;
- cotton wool or padding polyester;
- scissors, thread with a needle.
Important! Holes on the toes will not interfere. They can be patched with contrasting threads, which will give the toy a unique look.
When all materials are prepared, you can begin work. The manufacturing process is simple, so that at some stages you can safely connect children.
- Stuff the sock with filler. This should be done tightly, otherwise the figure will not be stable. When the synthetic winterizer reaches the heel zone, stop packing. The body must take an oval shape. The rest of the sock is trimmed.
- The hole through which the toy was stuffed should be stitched with threads to match the sock or, conversely, to the tone of the patches, and well pulled off. So that the seam could not be seen, the needle should be passed through the needle from the wrong side for the first time so that it goes outside. Stitches can be applied in any of the usual ways, but the main thing is to make them stiff.
- Cut a piece of sock to wear on the body of the future pig so that the gum is from the not darn edge. So the pig's head will be created. If the cut edge of the sock is too long, gently trim the excess.
- New hole pull off. A loose gum may shift, so matter should be held.
- To perform the tie-down using the “needle forward” method, while bending the edge. It is better to make small stitches, then the seam will be more taut and neat.
- From the gum of the second sock to make ears. To do this, cut it across and then in half.Unscrew the halves and fold them face to face. Mark the pencil shape of the ear and put the seam along the line. Leave the lower part unstitched so that the part can be turned out.
Important! If the gum of the sock is thin, then an additional layer of matter will be pushed inwards, otherwise the ears will fall ugly.
- Sew to the basis of eyelets and buttons for the peepholes and the snout. The toy is ready!
Pig Naf-Naf from children's tights
Children's bright panty hoses are perfect as the main material for creating a cute piggy toy. In addition to work will need:
- filler (cotton wool, synthetic winterizer, rags);
- scissors, thread (in tone color of matter);
- eye buttons;

- Make a piggy head. To do this, cut off the pantyhose sock, fill it with filler and sew tight on the edge.
- Mark the places for the location of the eyes, chin and mouth. To do this, skip the thread inside the head and tighten a little.
- Make a penny. To do this, cut a rectangle, pull it off from three sides, then fill it with padding polyester and sew it to the end.
- Putting it all together - torso, head, penny. In a similar way, with a string, the chin and mouth are sewn.
- Make hands To do this, cut two rectangles. Sew them on three sides, leaving a filling hole. After the hands are filled with padding polyester, sew to the body.
