I always need to save more money, for crafts and other stuff. So I made a piggy bank. To hold the change there is a plastic canvas liner inside. I used cotton yarn and button eyes. Oh and yes It's crochet. I started out with a pattern but it wasn't working out for me so I threw it out and did my own thing.









While I was taking pics our Kitten Izzy decided she needed some cash too

aw it's so cute. i love that it's long-ish, kinda sausage-y Cheesy that way it can hold more money! also, i've never seen a crocheted piggy bank before, and i love it!!

also, i like that there isn't a hole to take out the money, should be more conducive to saving!

Wow that's awesome and kitty is a cutie but can I ask what kind of a collar your kitty has on?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I always know when when I like something a lot because I instantly clicked on your link to your Etsy store. Will you be making these in the future to sell? Possibly in different colors for boys/girls/themes? A pirate one with a patch would be cute too. GREAT JOB!!!

I made the slot on top large enough that you can turn him over and shake the change right out of him.

It's a pet fence collar so she will keep out of trouble. It beeps if she gets to close to the sensors. and then she runs away
