So now I've got two sock monkey arms and a tail here. Looks like a bunch of bananas appropriately. They are all stuffed. Now one thing you can do to make them soft and supple is to kind of roll them between your hands like this a little bit once the stuffing is in them. Just so the stuffing’s not really that lumpy and they are kind of sort of uniform. So I am going to kind of do that and kind of feel till they sort of feel pretty uniform and I don't really feel any lumps in them. Here are the arms. Here are the tail, here's the tail. So again just kind of make a little creative decision where do I want the arms. Do I want them up high? Which kind of makes him kind of look like this kind of monkey or do I want them way down which makes him look like a little more like an ape like more like orangutan like with his arms real low. So I don't know I will probably put them somewhere in the middle. The tail goes not below the butt. You should look at a real monkey. If you don't know why that is, the tail actually goes above the butt right there. So I am going to use a whipping stitch to attach the tail and the arms the same way I did the ears and at that point we will be really close and we will be ready to stuff the monkey and sew him up.
