DIY stuffed monkeyApril 16, 2012
Stitch the opposite side of the sock pieces, so that you can turn them around to get smooth, almost cylindrical structures which can then be filled with cotton till they are full. Once the different parts are prepared, stitch them together! The face was done in a similar manner. The ears were prepared before stitching them on. The nose is the heel section of one of the socks. I stitched a part of it on, then stuffed it with cotton and completed the stitching. I contemplated using buttons for the eyes, but I didn't have any bright blue ones. So I figured color trumped product and went with cloth instead. Once he was done, I felt bad for the little guy and made him some pajamas too. I named him Rufus, and these days one would find him lazing around the tv room.
