    I have a sewing machine and some old socks… No stuffing though. Not sure whether to stuff it with old tights and just have a lumpy monkey. ADVICE PLZ K THX

    The Monster used cotton wool to stuff his monkey as he didn’t have anything else:

    I was concerned that this would lead to lumpyness but I guess as long as he keeps his monkey dry and doesn’t squash him too much he should be okay.
    I think you could use tights- at the end of the day it’s all about how it feels when you hug it, so whatever feels right I suppose.
    BTW, on this I am not an expert.
    I will try and ask Mister Monster how his monkey feels and let you know.

    Worry not, I gave up in a fit of apathy. Socks are now in the bin and sewing machine is unloved.
