A router is not going to easily cut out the shape, and would be difficult to hand hold to make the curves.

You should cut out the shape with jig saw, or coping saw or band saw, then make a template from hardboard or thin ply using the same cutting options.

Sand the template to have the smooth curves.

Then use a top pattern bit to smooth out the curves in the rough cut pine.
