So now our little Fitzcarraldo has got ears. I will have my opera house. So now we will give him some arms and a tail. We are going to stuff all three of them. Just remember you usually put more stuffing in them than you think you are going to need. And then we are just going to whip stitch them on. I am going to just start doing stuffing. You know when you stuff something long like this sometimes it's helpful to use something long to get that stuffing there. So for example you could use the end of a wooden spoon. I am going to use this sharpie to just kind of poke stuffing kind of down in the bottom. You have to kind of you know sort of work it in there I mean the sharpie is actually not working that well right now. So why don't I do this use my finger and I am just going to kind of work this little tube kind of up my finger. You really have to just kind of work from the tip down. Don't put a lot of stuffing in there in the beginning and try to get it to the bottom. You kind of have to do it sort of a little by little. So now I've got the tip of the tail. I'm going to grab some more. You will be amazed how much stuffing sometimes if you have never done something like this before. You will be amazed how much stuffing you can put into something. I mean you know like we are probably not going to use this whole bag but you know if we had all of the stuffing from something like this on the table you might thing there is no way all that stuffing is going into that one little sock monkey. But in fact I've already put a lot into this. What is this? This is the tail here. So I am just going to keep going. I am going to stuff all three of these before I whip stitch them on. But once that is done they go on the same way the ears did.
