How to design a piggy bank

So, I started with a blank sheet of paper, well. foam actually.

The idea is for me to design and build a piggy bank from the very beginning. Once designed, I will sell them.

1. Buy some foam

The Original SwearPig2. Glue the foam to an appropriate size. I found that using lots of PVA did the trick. That is after using all manner of things from “No Nails” to flour and water.

3. Chop your foam to an appropriate size (please ask a responsible adult to assist)

I will be uploading more updates as and when I have completed them.
