Do you mean my piggy bank Jelly?
Put papermache over a balloon.
After 2nd layer add 4 feet (bottom bits of an egg box but don't forget you have to microwave them first), then burst the balloon and add another bit of egg box for snout and put more papermache over the top. (I did have to put on some layers of paper myself in the evenings cos only had a week and you need a few layers)
When all done and dry paint it pink add or paint eyes etc and then cut a slot in the top and a hole in the bottom (we had saved some tops out of some sweetie tubes at xmas to use to bung up the hole).
Ours got finished today and they look fab and the kids loved them.
