Make cover first so the rice pillow can be properly adjusted to fit inside
If using a zipper on the cover than sew zipper onto front and back of cover along the bottom of the head make sure you have the zipper pull out toward the side of the printed fabric. If using velcro or snaps to close turn the bottom edge (opening) of each side of the pillow cover inward and stitch along edge to finish off edge, If using velcro now might be a good time to attach to bottom before front and back are sewn together. small sew on or regular snaps can be added after project is sewn if using these.
After choice of closure is attached with printed side facing each other on the inside stitch along inner edge of cream border around monkey head. Flip inside out. With your iron lightly press sock monkey flat and double stitch from top to bottom of each ear forming flaps. This will insure the brains stays in position firmly and doesn't slide into the ears, Next sew the brains together printed sides facing in toward each other leaving small opening to fill with rice, before turning inside out (This would be a good time to fill with rice to test the pillow for fit and adjust accordingly for easy fit into cover by slightly reducing the size of the pillow if needed, make sure not to over fill with rice so the pillow is plush but lays flat) once test fits perfect. empty out rice. ( its good to stitch around sewn edges again to secure that no rice ever leaks from pillow ) Last, flip so printed side shows refill with rice stitch opening closed. Insert brains into Genius Monkey Head Cover Project Finished!
