    Love the pig Marytoddliz! I remember making one of those out of a balloon and newspaper strips BACK IN THE DAY.

    Paper Mache, ten layers. The first five are with out the nose, ears, legs and tail, then you put those on with masking tape, I use part of a paper egg crate. after you tape them in place 5 more layers of paper and then let dry for 3 to 5 days, depending on weather and how dry they get, but you really want them totally dry, then I put on the layer of fabric, topped off with clear coat, two coats. Cut your coin slot before you put on fabric layer and use a stelletto to push fabric around money slot. I don't put a cork on mine but I know if you want to you can get them at Michael's. Cut your hole for the plug same time you cut the money slot.

    I think I have the tutorial on my blog page, I will check it out and put a link if i do.
