Directions

  1. Step 1

    Stuff the grocery bags with the cotton batting until full.

    Pull the sweatshirt over the bags.

  4. Step 4

    Stuff the socks loosely with the batting.

  5. Step 5

    Cut and place a piece of florist wire inside each sock and bend it to shape.

  6. Step 6

    Use a rubber band to tie off the top of the sock 1 inch from the top.

  7. Step 7

    Pin the socks around the inside bottom of the sweatshirt.

  8. Step 8

    Cut Oswald's features from black felt, as in photo. Glue to the sweatshirt.

  9. Step 9

    Glue the plastic container bottom to the larger lid to make a hat. Paint it black and let it dry. Attach it to the right shoulder of shirt with Velcro.
