    Monster:
    1. Draw shape of monster body on felt, approximately 2 x 3 inches.
    2. Cut two.
    3. Cut two ½ inch by 6 inch strips of felt the same color as the body. Tie knots in both ends of each piece. Trim edge of knot to be flush with the knot. Set aside.
    4. Cut another strip 1/3 inch wide by 5 inches long. Trim one end to a point. Set aside.
    5. On the front of the Monster body, stitch a "monster mouth".
    6. Starting at the bottom right side of the monster body, stitch both pieces together using contrasting thread. Leave an opening at the bottom, but keep the needle and thread attached.
    7. Stuff body with small bits of stuffing. Sew closed at bottom of body.
    8. Turn the body over, face down and glue one strip with knots on ends from side to side. These will become the arms.
    9. With the monster still face down, glue the other strip across the bottom. These become the legs.
    10. Cut a tri-fold diaper. Cut a ¼ inch slit in the backside of diaper and insert the last strip with a point (the tail). Glue to the inside of the diaper.
    11. Wrap diaper around the Monster and secure with a small gold pin.
    12. Hot glue wiggle eyes and tooth.
    Bed:
    1. Cut a piece of fabric 1 inch larger on both sides than the tin.
    2. Cut a piece of batting the size of the tin.
    3. Hot glue the edges of the batting to the fabric and turn under on all sides.
    4. Hot glue the little mattress you just made into the bottom of the tin.
    5. Wrap the outside of the tin with decorative Washi™ Tape.
    6. Write the name of your monster on the Washi™ Tape.
    7. Using another scrap of felt, cut a blanket the size of the tin. Top with a scrap of fabric the same size. Cut another piece of fabric ¼ inch smaller and fray the edges in 1/8 inch.
    8. Using the same color thread that you stitched your monster, stitch all layers of the blanket together.
