It's been a while since I've made a piggy bank for myself to give as a gift, but I had the chance to get Fancy for friends of my own this weekend.

I was also asked to make the "deluxe package" (aka, piggy bank and plate set) for a former co-worker whose daughter just had her first baby. I couldn't find the baby's bedding on her registry, so I drew my inspiration from this adorable gift set:

For Eva's plate set, I used a color scheme and pattern that somewhat coordinated with the piggy bank for a gift with a cohesive look.
