So I've got my ear placed on the side of the head and I've closed it up. I didn't show that step. But I stuffed it and just closed that ear up entirely. And now I am just going to whip stitch it to the side of the head here. And it's okay I am going to go right through the stuffing and everything. Just the point at this state is just kind of get all the parts attached to the main sock body so that when you stuff it everything is in place. So let's see how we are doing. Yep, kind of getting there. And obviously then you know remember these ears are shaped more like the letter D. The flat parts against the head. And once again it's time for a creative decision because you know the higher or the lower you put the ears the bigger or the smaller ears, the further forward, the further back it's just going to give your monkey a different look to it. So it's kind of all personality that goes into it. So I am about halfway done with his ear. I am a going to finish whip stitching it on and tie it off. Put the other one on and press ahead.
