If you make the monkey without the pants on, sew the tail directly to the body. If you make the party monkey (pattern coming soon), you will have to put the pant on before the sew the tail.

I apologize, I forgot to take pictures of the monkey with the tail before to put the pant on, but here are some pictures to show you how to sew the tail to the body.
