Turn your sock inside out and sew the legs of your monkey leaving a ¾ space in-between so you can cut the legs sew till you are about 1 away from where the heal is.
Turn right side out and stuff your body to desired fullness and when you have it where you want start sewing up the legs with a slip stitch.
Determine where you want the head and tie a ribbon around the neck.
Cut the other sock and turn and stuff. Look at the drawing to see what I mean.
Place the mouth on the face and pin so it doesn’t move when you start to sew.
Place your ears where you want them, pin and sew.
Place the tail and sew in place
Now its time to pin and sew your arms.
Now its time for the face, take 3 ply black embroidery floss, stitch the smile, nose and then sew the buttons eyes. You can add eyelashes if you want.


I like to use a wooden dowel to help stuff the tail and arms it does get a little tricky.
