I did it! I made some little mohair guinea pigs. Following on from an earlier post about how I found that secret stash of mohair scraps, I realised that a lot of them would work well as guinea pig colours. A little bit of brain storming and scribbled designing later - and the result are these two sweet cartoon-like mohair guinea pigs. I was aiming for 'realism' with the shape - but alas the heads are too squat to be realistic. But I am actually really happy with them despite this. I think I'll keep tweaking the patterns with each new piggy I make though - but that's just human nature I think!
