So I think that this is one of the hardest parts of the sock monkey project is getting this snout on because you've already kind of sewed the body up. You know you've already got that little hole in the crotch that you have to kind of put a finger into in order to work on the other side of the mouth. What I have kind of done here is I've kind of flipped the mouth backwards right, the snout kind of backwards. And I am just kind of starting by running sort of the first sort of seam so I've got it inside out kind of up against the face but this is actually the top of the snout and then when I am done with that stitch I am going to pull it down and whip the bottom with a whipping stitch and so. And actually I will just take this out so you can see what I mean. There's the face, snout is inside out. I am doing this seam first. But that's going to be the top of the snout cause when the seam is done then I will fold this over and then fold this little brown edge under the snout and then whip the bottom of that and so. So that is what I am going to do. Like I say you do have to kind of have a finger on the other side of the sock because well this one of the things that makes sewing the snout tricky is you just want to go through the front of the sock. You just want to sew the snout through the front of the sock and not to the back. So you just have to be careful that when you do these stitches that you are just going through the front and so that is why I have to have a hand inside or like I say I just kind of have a finger inside. But just to kind of feel where that needle is going. So I am going to keep working on this snout. Once I have this stitch done we will do another clip and give you an update.
