Stitch the two halves together with a cotton string through the circular holes on the periphery to form a complete piggy bank. When the piggy bank is full, untie the cotton rope to take out the coins inside. The cotton string can be tied in multiple ways to create different patterns on the periphery of the piggy bank. This pottery piggy bank is made up of two identical parts, which means that it is completely symmetrical and only needs one mould during the production process.
