You all remember Monkey right? Well, Monkey hasn't been doing so well lately. He started coming apart at the back seam (again!) and I can only assume that the cause for his rupture was being loved almost to death. The choke hold Binny puts on Monkey nightly is somewhat scary but at least he's only a stuffed animal and not her sister.
Anyhow, Binny insisted that we sew Monkey back up, and while he was open I decided to do a little stuffed animal liposuction by removing all of his old stuffing. I also took this once in a blue moon chance to run him through the washer and dryer to clean his soiled little body and fluff up his matted fur.
After his bath and tumble dry, we stuffed him up with fresh stuffing and I sewed a new seam in his back. This time I used heavy duty thread.
Good as new!
