It's obvious pigs are very nosey animals. So a free piggy bank pattern is the logical thing to do..... isn't it ?

Parts ( download PDF part 1 and part 2. )
1. Exterior side A ( cut once, exterior fabric )
2. Exterior side B ( cut once, exterior fabric )
3. Lining side A ( cut once, lining fabric )
4. Lining side B ( cut once, lining fabric )
5. Nose ( cut once, lining fabric )
6. Ears ( cut four times ; twice lining fabric, twice exterior fabric )
7. Tail ( cut twice; once lining fabric, once exterior fabric )

Enlarge to every size you wish. This one can hold a creditcard and some money.

Materials needed
- Fabric ( print for lining, plain for exterior. Of course, you could do all solid or all print, or a variety. )
- Button
- Little black beads for the eyes.
- Embroidery floss to make a little loop to hook around the button.
- Optional some stuffing for the snout.

Description
- Cut all parts out of the fabric. Include a 1/4" seem.

- Sew together the ears and tail and turn right sides out ( Be patient, the fun starts after this ).
- Pin en sew parts 2 and 4 together up to the arrows ( see picture below ). Back stitch at each end to secure.
- Same for part 1 and 3.

- Sew together from forehead to tail. Leave the nose open. Back stitch at each end to secure. Make sure the lining doesn't get stuck.
- Handsew the little circle for the snout in the right place.

- Sew the ears on ( don't sew through the lining ).
- Sew on some beads for the eyes ( mind the lining again ).
- Make a knot in the tail.

For anybody who wants to own a piggy bank but doesn't want to sew; the piggy bank you can see in the pictures above is now in the Nosey Nest Shop. More piglets will be added later.

If you made a piggy bank with this pattern please add a picture to the Nosey Nest Tutorial Group at Flickr.

It looks like you are adding seam allowance when you cut out the fabric? So seam allowance is not included in the patterns?
