Help - pooping piggy

Postby tiiiiii_85 » Sat Apr 08, 2017 10:03 am

Hello everybody,
I recently started stitching again and now I would like to make a sign for the door to my toilet. Since I am in love with cute piggies I would like to stitch a piggy on a toilet, pooping coins. :D
Here is the original image:


I tried to make a pattern out of it and this is the result I got:

I am not happy at all about the coins. I tried to make them manually, but I failed badly... Also I lost the curly tail in the process. :cray:
Anybody can help me?

Firstly, I'm sorry it's taken a while for someone to get to this. I'll try to help in whatever way I can.

How do you feel about backstitching? It might be the solution, both to the coins problem and the curly tail one too.

I don't mind backstitching.

Thanks for the help!

How's this for you?

I did what I could with the coins, but I wasn't able to make them look angled like in the original picture. I added a tiny tail, and also took the liberty of adjusting the eye and adding some detail to the newspaper - I hope you don't mind! I also used some slightly different colours than yours (but feel free to choose your own if you prefer!)

Please let me know if I can help any more :)

I love it!! :clap:
The idea of making the coins vertical is simple, but very nice... Should have thought about this possibility... I like the choice of colors too, I will use them. The gradation of grays will be very nice.
The tail in backstitching will be a bit small... Do you think I can use two treads to make it? I usually use one but maybe with 2 it will be visible enough.

Awesome! Now it's time to buy the treads and start working on it!
Thanks again! :D

Just incase anyone is thinking about doing this stitch here's my version. Stitched from my stash so colours do not match up, and I edited the brown for black and then added back stitching around the toilet. A lot of fun to stitch, and it only took a day.
Picture is from my iPhone so apologies if it's the wrong way round.
