The Laundry Monster...

I thought of this last night while I was lying in bed and couldn't sleep--I guess something good came from it right??

I already had an old hamper so I bought about $17 worth of supplies--which could've been a lot less, but I bought a huge thing of yarn to have some for the future and also bought about 5 more sheets of felt than needed.

Red, white, pink, black, and multi colored felts + yarn.

Hamper + Hot glue gun.

Drew what would be the "teeth," traced them, and cut them out.

Consider this your forewarning. 
I cut the red felt into strips for the "lips."
Add the tongue.
I then folded the "lips" under and glued them.
Eyes added.
Cut short "hair" to make bangs.  I only did a few at a time so the glue wouldn't dry before I got to it.
One side.
Cut long strands of yarn and tie in a not.  Twice.
Test run.
