The torso posed some serious problems.  The fabric is old and has lost lots of it's stretch, and the left side was pretty much shreaded and would need a massive patch.  However, if I just patched without addresssing the shreading the restuffed monkey would be bent like a banana.  The solution was to do some Franken-darning around the shreaded parts to hold the stuffing in, and then give the monkey a full torso cover with a portion of new sock.





That's an example of proper darning.  That patch is on the underside of the tail.

Re-attaching the limbs was no problem, and I decided that monkey needed to have a little red heart badge for all that he'd been through.  It's only tacked on, so if they owners don't like it they can pull it off.
