Alright now I have got both legs sewed up except for a little hole here. And this next part is a little invasive to our little sock monkey. I usually don't like it. But now what you have to do is stick your finger up this little hole and turn him inside out. And so it's so the hole is about an inch in diameter so it's kind of a narrow gap but you should be able to get everything through it. I mean I am going to kind of start with the head. Be careful not to stretch it too much. You will rip the seam. Just kind of work it through and kind of start with that. Okay here comes most of the head and here it comes. Great and now we got the butt turned inside out. That is good. Now it is a little bit trickier because you have to actually individually now through the hole turn each leg inside out too. So think of it kind of like turning a glove inside out. Where you would have to kind of get to the end of each of those little fingers so I am kind of like I got my finger down in this leg and I am kind of synching it up, sort of like putting a sock on. I guess like putting a sock or stockings on. I am going to kind of spin it around and try and sort of poke it through here. Here it comes. So that will be one little leg. If I can just get it started here. Come on little monkey leg. There we go. Okay one leg and I am just going to kind of pull the toe out. And one more leg to do. So we got to go in that hole and kind of navigate your way no wait a minute here it is. You have to navigate your way into this little leg. I think I am doing this right. Looks right. And kind of just get the end of it here. To the end I am just going to kind of bunch it up. I am going to kind of poke it through. There we go. Grab. Be kind of gentle because you know you didn't you know make these seems I mean hopefully so sort of strong but I mean they are not super strong. Great, okay here we go. Now he is right side out. Butt, legs, now his legs are a couple of little tubes. And this little hole that you left is where you will stuff the head and the body and you stuff the legs there. Okay we are going to just set that aside for now and work on some of the other body parts.
