How to Make Piggie from “Elephant and Piggie” Books

The Elephant and Piggie series by Mo Willems is an adorable children’s book series that I love to read to the preschool set.

In about in afternoon you too can have a Piggie puppet to play along with the kids as you read the books together.

All you need is:

• The Tucson Puppet Lady’s Moveable Mouth Pig Hand Puppet Pattern available from Etsy Store or our website store.
Free Eye Pattern with instructions

You don’t want Piggie to be lonely, and he won’t be because we have an elephant pattern. I was surprised to see how much our elephant pattern looked like Gerald. The only major adaptations necessary were changing the ears and adding eyeglasses.
