Alright we have got all of the pieces; body, snout, ear, ear, arm, arm, tail, legs. So now let's put it together. I am going to place the tail and the arms and the snout and the ears to one side. Take the body, I am going to stick my hand into not exactly the monkeys rear end sort of. I am going to turn the sock inside out okay so that is what I have done. And you can tell that that's what I have done because there is all of these threads sort of by this part here. So now what I am going to do is start to sew the legs up. And basically the idea is I'm going to you have to kind of fold the leg over. So we are going to be making a tube of you know sock here and all I am going to do is just get a needle and thread and you and use a sewing machine if you want. I do it by hand the old fashioned way. And all you need to do is you need to do this twice. You run a seam here. You just kind of sew kind of sew. Here's the fold. I mean here's the folds so you just kind of start there and you can round it off a little bit to give it kind of a rounded foot. We are going to sew like this and then we are going to come all the way up the basically the end seam here and but we are going to stop about right there kind of before the monkeys crotch. Because we need to stuff the monkey with stuffing. So we are going to do that with each side. So that is what I am going to do. I am going to thread my needle with I just use embroidery thread for all of it. So I will probably use I don't know maybe you know kind of a conspicuous color maybe this brown or this white. I will probably use this brown. And will use most likely kind of a half thread. So let's see here where I put my scissors. Here they are. So I am just going to kind of I don't know cut maybe that much and like I say full treads kind of overkill so I'm going to divide the embroidery thread into half if I can do that. Let's see here I think it's a it seems to be a this particular thread seems to be a six strand thread so I am just going to kind of get three and three. Here it goes. Getting close. Okay, there good. And if you have done embroidery before you know exactly what I am doing so this is not exactly a mystery. Okay alright so I am going to thread this needle and I am going to sew round off the foot. I mean I have got this sock inside out. Round off the foot off to the in seam stop about a half an inch from the crotch do the same thing on the other side and that's what I am going to do now. And then in the next clip we will see what it looks like.
