10 Pig Perler Bead Patterns for Toddlers
1. Simple Perler Pig Pattern

2. Easy Muddy Pig Pattern
Pigs are usually depicted as dirty and stinky creatures, wallowing in the mud all day, like this pattern from KrazyKnotz, but they are actually quite hygienic animals and only wallow in mud to keep their body cool.
I love the detail on this pattern because the mud is splattered on parts of the pig’s body.
