Step 1: The ears

Things you will need for this step:
Scissors
Sewing machine
Thread
Black fabric

Fold in-half a piece of black fabric (WARNING: make sure you fold it so the ugly side is facing out. Fold it pretty side to pretty side!) and then sew the long side down (WARNING: Make sure the fabric is the right size for your ear's). Now turn the ear inside out. Once you have 2 like this stuff them with your stuffing, stuff them very full so that they stick up when you sew them onto the hood of your sweater.

I didn't have a sweater I am just using a green shirt so I don't have a hood to sew them onto, sorry. The last step explains.

Step 2: The arms

Things you will need for this step:
Needle
Thread (black)
Black fabric
Sewing machine
Green sweatshirt
Chalk

Cut the sleeve's of your sweater off under the seam that attaches the sleeve to the shoulders (otherwise it would unravel). Fold in-half a very large piece of black fabric, big enough so that your already cut off sleeve can sit on it with the edge of the sleeve can match up with the folded edge of the fabric with a inch between the folded edge of the fabric and the edge of the sleeve. Trace it with the chalk and remove the sleeve (WARNING: Remember, make sure the tracing is about an inch wider the your sleeve itself) and cut out the tracing. Put them pretty side to pretty side and sew the long edge down, turn the sleeve inside out and Use a needle and thread to sew the shoulder end to the shoulder of the costume, put the first one on-top of more and trace it to make another.

This costume looks like it will bring you to your DOOMY DOOM DOOM DOOM!! :) to bad I found this after Halloween but will keep in mind for the coming year :)
One year NickToons ran "The Most Horrible Xmas Ever" every night one December, and that's where we learned the ways of Zim (and my wife became a fan of GIR). Great costume!
