Quick Felt Piggy Bank Craft Idea

Do you get fed up with your pocket weighing down with loose change? we seem to accumulate it every time we go out shopping. The bottom of my purse can have at least 3 of 4 pounds worth of loose change at anyone time.

So we have found this great Felt Piggy Bank craft idea that you can take around in your purse and keep your change in one place. A fuzzy, fat pig in the bottom of your purse will be much easier to grab a hold of than loose change.

For this project you will need:

Acrylic felt sheets
Pig pattern
Sewing machine OR needle and thread
washable fabric marker (optional)

Cut your pattern out and either trace onto your felt with your marker or pin to the fabric and trim around. Mark the area for the slot and draw a rectangle around it.

You can use a disappearing or washable fabric pen and you won’t have these lines. I'm using black so you can easily see what’s going down in piggy town!

Sew the rectangle around your slot.


And trim out the opening with scissors. Folding the pig in half helps to get the cut started.


Sew the pig onto a piece of felt and trim away the excess when done. This helps the front and back be the same without having to worry about either slide slipping and getting all wonky on you.

Made in lots of fun colours, these would make great little gifts!
