Step 2

Line up the T-shirt on the inside of the laundry bag. Pull the sleeves of the shirt through the arm holes in the laundry bag and sew the arm holes onto the top of the shirt sleeves.

Step 3

Sew the head hole in the laundry bag to the collar of the T-shirt. Stuff batting in between the shirt and the laundry bag until it is completely full.

Step 4

Sew the remaining open edge of the laundry bag onto the bottom of the shirt. Pair this with some red leggings.

Step 5

To make the stem, roll up a piece of construction paper to make a tube that is 6 inches tall and glue it onto the headband.
