This came about because I was having a blah day.  I was given a hug that was octopus like and then came the inspiration for this....

Step 1: Materials

1 T shirt
Pipe cleaners (dollar store)
Suction cups (dollar store)
Safety Pins (dollar store)
Plastic bags

-Not pictured
2 rubber bands
sewing materials
My girlfriend will love these ;)
This is absolutely adorable! My 10 year old son is going to love this!
Awesome!! Please comment with a pic of yours.
Cool! So sweet.
Working on my right now! i plan on safety pinning them to arms of t-shirts. i'll post finished pics.
Awesome, can't wait to see the pics. Are you doing green or another color?
Dark green, with little white fabric circles in stead of suction cups (student budget wouldn't allow it, and not many people throw large amounts of suction cups in the trash)
I got them for a buck a pack at dollar tree. I look forward to seeing your end result.
Elastic bands could be sewn into the cuffs instead of using rubber bands. That might make it easier to get them onto your arms.
I did not have elastic band on hand. Putting them on can become a two man job. I will be sewing the arms onto the sleeves of another t- shirt, letting the t-shirt sleeve fall over the arms. This makes it easier to be able to put them on with no assistance. Also it eliminates the possibility of real arms being exposed.
