Oscar finally has mini pig clothes to wear! I ended up sewing Oscar some clothes, but I also found a great online mini pig clothing and accessories store if you’re looking for somewhere to buy them. Check out the bottom portion of this post for details.
When we first brought Oscar home, I set out to find cute mini pig clothes for him to wear. I searched online but didn’t want to pay a lot since Oscar was growing so quickly. Next I tried dog clothes, but none of them seemed to fit him well. Lastly, I bought an infant t-shirt from the store, but he could barely walk in it. Frustrated that I couldn’t find anything to fit him, I gave up my search for a few months.
Oscar’s first winter is just around the corner and he will have to go outside in the cold since he doesn’t use a potty box, so I was desperate to find clothes to keep him warm. This time I decided to try making him some clothes. I dug out my sewing machine, bought fabric, and went to work.
Oscar and I had fun making mini pig clothes together, although mini piglets are terrible sewing partners. He wiggled around like crazy when I measured him, chewed on my acrylic sewing rulers, walked all over the neatly laid out fabric, and insisted on sitting in my lap the rest of the time. We had a few struggles, but now he has clothes to wear for the winter and they are just his size!
If you are searching for mini pig clothes and either don’t sew or just don’t have the time to make them, I have also discovered a great online store where you can buy mini pig clothing: Snort Life. Snort Life sells really fun clothing and accessories made specifically for pigs. Since I’ve been sewing clothes for Oscar, I haven’t yet ordered from Snort Life myself and can’t personally vouch for them, but their Etsy store has excellent reviews and a large variety of creative products to choose from.
