When I first saw Peppa, the little piggy-girl, I wondered that Peppa had so many fans. I thought, she did not look sooo cute. My niece agreed with me – Peppa is a design that is made for small children.
The television series was very successful, broadcast in 180 countries and received the main prize as the best TV production at the International Festival of Animated Film in Annecy and many other prizes. But that did not change my feelings.
Until one day, where I saw the little piggy in the supermarket and somehow I fell in love with Peppa. I changed my mind and I thought that she is so cute that it would be wonderful to have her as an Amigurumi. The other day I grabbed my crochet hook and started to make a pattern for Peppa.
But somehow I did not manage to write down the pattern for Peppa and to crochet her one more time to make sure, that there aren’t mistakes in the pattern. My enthusiasm was simply gone and I put the project in a box.
Until my niece found the box. Usually she is a quiet girl, but that day she was delighted and cuddled the little Peppa. And suddenly I felt it again: the love for Peppa! Well, tastes can change quite fast in our house 🙂
Here is the curious and imaginative Peppa, who likes to jump over the puddles after a rain:
And since we have only a few weeks until Christmas, I crocheted for the two Peppa’s a Santa Claus hat:
