Alright, So one of my favorite things to do is to take toys that nobody cares about, cut them up and make them into something new! I was at target the other day and saw these $1 stuffed toys and they had the CREEPIEST eyes so I picked out a lion, Dog, lamb and Elephant ( Im so sorry I didnt get a before picture bah!!!) to take home and play with. I just basically cut them up and sewed them back together in about a 3 days and this is what I ended up with.

Introducing, Crumpet the "freak ass" spider!



(he is 1 foot wide and 8-9 inches long)

I started by cutting out all the toys eyes then sewing the face, then I took some metal rods, bent them into the shape of spider legs hot glued them together then and sewed around the legs. It was very creepy sewing him up since I hate spiders, sometimes I would just see that little spider head rolling around on the floor and get grossed out!!!

Here is a close up of his creepy eyes:



And here is his lion Mane butt with ear "spinners"



And finally, a picture of crumpet chilling out in his natural habitat and climbing a tree!
