Assembly

Eyes: Using a yarn needle and black yarn tail, sew 1 pupil to each white eye. Using a yarn needle and white yarn, sew the eyes onto the bag above the mouth opening.

Teeth: Using a yarn needle and black yarn, sew teeth onto the inside edge of the mouth opening in any position you’d like.

Inside Mouth Panel: Position the panel inside the monster’s mouth, long edge of the panel in a horizontal position, just above the top edge of the mouth opening (and above where you sewed the teeth on). Using a yarn needle and black yarn, sew the panel to the inside of the bag. Sew the top edge of the panel only.

Arms: Position one short end of the arm on the side of the head with top edge of the arm lined up with the top edge of the mouth. Using a yarn needle and 14-18″ piece of orange yarn, sew that end onto the head. Before sewing the opposite side on, twist the arm halfway around (this will help it lay more nicely) and then sew it onto the other side of the head.

Spiders: Using a yarn needle and tail of yarn, sew 1 spider on the bag at the end of each spider web string. After attaching the spider’s body, use the extra yarn to make little legs. If you choose to make more than a couple spiders, sew them on wherever you’d like.
