Piggie’s Creations

I have yet another site started… Because I just don’t have enough to do 😛

If you have been following the crochet posts that I have been making, I will not longer be making them on this site. I will now be making all of those posts on this new site. I have a face book page by the same name and want all of my crochet materials to be under the same name. At this point, I am not moving the posts I have already made on this site to the new one. I may at some future date, but it is unlikely.

Buta Side


This is one of those things that I spent a ridiculous amount of time on and still ended up with little to show for the effort. I have never really had a good side view for this character and was hoping to work something out that was doable for the comic. I don’t like it. Sigh.
