I'm just going to put one of these pairs of socks over here for the time being because like I said, you need one pair to make one monkey. Basically how it works is this. One sock becomes the monkey's body. You have to kind of imagine this. When we're done, this is going to be stuffed with stuffing. This is going to be the head. We don't have the little snout on it yet. We've got to make that. This is going to be the head. This is going to be the rear end, and then we're going to make a cut kind of down the sock here. Then these will become the pieces of the sock that we'll sew each of them up and those will become the 2 legs. Out of one sock, you've got the head, the eyes will end up being here somewhere, rear end, then we'll make kind of a cut down the middle of the sock, and then those will become the legs. Out of the other sock, you make pieces. You'll cut this out. You make kind of a triangular cut here and that will become the snout. We've got to sew that on. Then you can cut here like this and then cut that in half. Then each one of those becomes an arm. Out of the rest here, you can cut a tail out of about half of this and then maybe a ears out of the other piece if you want to put ears on it or other body parts. I'll let you use your imagination. That's what we'll do. In the next clip, I'm going to start with one of these socks. I just need to make one cut and it's going to be a cut to make the legs.
