2.2 inches (5.5 centimeters)
This tiny pig is called ‘Ricky’.
Ricky is approx. 2,2 inches (5,5 cm) tall from his toes to the tips of his hair.
Ricky is made from soft, pink mini fabric. He is sewn by hand with a lot of love and attention for detail.
He is filled with synthetic filling and some granulate (steel shot) give him a nice weight. Ricky has two brown glass eyes. His nose, ears, arms and feet are sculpted.
Ricky is not jointed. His arms, legs and head can not move.
My bigger creations have a tag on them but Ricky is a bit too tiny for this big tag. It would not look good on him. But to assure you from an original ‘Mellisea Creation’ he will come with a certificate of authenticity.
Although tiny Ricky loves to be held and cuddled, he is not a toy. He is for a collector and not suitable for children.
I try to take the pictures with the best color settings but the colors can always look slightly different in real.

My name is Melanie Meulenberg-Ansems, and I am an award-winning, self-taught soft-sculpture artist. I live in the most southern part of the Netherlands.
I started sculpting when I was just 9 years old. I worked with polymer clay (FIMO/ Cernit/ Super Sculpey) for more then 15 years until I got some unfortunate problems with my hands which made it hard for me to work with clay. Not able to sit still or do nothing I started making mini-crochets figurines. In 2009 I started my first attempt in sewing a soft-sculpture animal. I drew my own pattern and made my first dog handbag.
A little while later my first (smaller) soft-sculpture tiger called ‘Toby’ was born. Since them many more have been born.
I use several techniques and materials for my creations, like (felting) wool, fabric, mohair, faux fur and polymer clay. Not all of my creations are jointed, so please read the descriptions carefully. My creations are handmade and one of a kind. They are all made with lots of love, care and attention to detail. They will come with a tag and a certificate.
Unfortunately I can't keep all my little darlings to myself and I will have to put some of them up for adoption.
I hope you enjoy looking through my gallery and maybe you will find one of my darlings you would like to adopt and give a lovely home.
Thank you for your time!
