STEP 4: THE LOBSTERIf you are a terrible artist, don’t worry- there are a few tricks to make the lobster look good. The length of the lobster needs to be about six inches wider than your shoulders. Fold the red felt over (you’ll need to double the lobster on the back) and trace a general shape of the lobster. Cut it out (both layers) and now you’re ready to make it look like a lobster.

STEP 1: THE FELT
Stop at your local fabric store on your lunch break and pick up some remnant felt. You’ll need about a yard of red, and enough black to make the phone dial (12 inches to 16 inches diameter), and just a scrap of white. Felt is fairly cheap, so this should cost you around $5.
