Twist and Weave

I just have to say, I think this turned out awesome! Sometimes I have an idea and it turns out just how I envisioned it. Other times, its a complete disaster and I'm too embarrassed to even post it!

This is a fun variation on my weaving braids.................
We're off to a very ugly start! Make two piggies, leaving out 2 sections in the front, and 2 on the bottom. As shown...................
Take a small piece on the bottom, on one side, closest to the part. Twist it up and cross it over to the piggy on the opposite side. Keep going, all the way to the end of her head. (I kept these twists in a little clip by the piggy until I got one side done, then added them all to the pig at the same time, securing with another elastic.) Now, you can start on the other side, with the piece closest to the part. This time, twist, and weave through the twists you've already done, over to the other piggy.
You are now ready to start on the top. Do the same thing, taking the section closest to the part, and crossing over to the opposite piggy.
Weave the other side through, just like you did the bottom. (As you can see, when I secured these with the elastic, I left out a little "ear" to make the buns with.
Twist and wrap the ends around the little ears you made for the buns and wrap with scrunchies. You're good to go!
