Introduction: 'Coin-eating' Piggy Bank

Picture of 'Coin-eating' Piggy Bank

In this instructable I'm going to show you how to make this cute bank.

1. What did you make? 
I made a coin bank  that you put the coins through the animals mouth. You just slip the coins in the animals mouth and the coins fall inside the bank. It's really cute.
I used a empty round oatmeal container, a hot-glue gun, scissors, a sharpie, and felt.

2. How did you make it?
I had the idea to make the bank, and hadn't had time to make it yet. I made the bank myself, though it would have been fun to make it with friends. Originally, I wanted to make it a cat, but it turned out to look like a German Shepherd!!!

3.Where did you make it?
I made this bank at home in my room. I think it goes well with my change purse instuctable at this link:

4. What did you learn?
I think that through making this project that I learned that if you make something and it doesn't turn out how you want, it's not really ruined. I am REALLY into cats, so i wanted to make this bank into a cat, but it turned out to look like a dog!! Oh well, maybe next time it'll look like a cat!
