Last fall, I wanted to crochet something that reflected the slide of the economy. When other projects occupied my late 2008, I thought I missed the opportunity to make something current.

Unfortunately, the economy has continued to worsen. Fortunately, the long downturn has allowed me to make this timely moneybag and piggy bank!


Robbers will be disappointed that these items contain only polyfil stuffing. The piggy bank can accept one real coin in its working coin slot, which was formed by sewing a pocket to a crocheted button hole.


Here's a piggy bank comic I drew in 2002, when the economy was better:


The best financial approach is as timely now as it was then: spend and save wisely!

Thanks a bunch!

I also credit my mom for lending me the shiny coin, since all of mine were dull in comparison.

I would love to see those "demented" pigs and elephants Smiley I bet they have more character than this piggy bank!

The pig's body is made of an amigurumi ball (with a button hole in the center).  The snout starts off as small circle that ends with a row of sc around the front stitches only, then built up with sc stitches. The legs are smaller versions of the snout, and were stuffed before being stitched on to the pig body. When I finally learn how to write my patterns down in the proper lingo, I promise to follow in the footsteps of Jillian Jiggs and her Wonderful Pigs. Wink
