Handmade Monday 31

I've been really busy with doctors, optician and hospital appointments this week. Hasn't left a lot of time for crafting. I do have my new glasses though to try to help with my double vision problems. I am off to Bath RUH next week to get my new hearing aids too I do hope they will help.
I have finished the piggy money box my daughter wanted for her birthday. She is 16 but loves farm animals she is hoping to be a dairy farmer and will be starting the level 2 diploma in agriculture at college in Sept.

Here are a few pics of the finished papier mache money box. It doesn't have a name yet as I have left that up to her.

Sorry about the photo's they aren't very good, the pig is bright pink, black and grey. It does have a slot in the top and underneath is a plastic stopper, to get the money out. This was great to make and I think I will be making some more to sell, I am going to experiment with other animals too.
