created from her cross-cut mink coat
|Laura has named her unusual skunk "Pepe"|
|6 inches high while sitting|
|Tail is 5 1/2 inches long|
Tail has wire armature to curve it
but it is too large to allow the skunk to stand alone
embroidered, waxed, and sealed nose
|I tried to alternate the black and white areas when I was laying out the pattern pieces|
but once I stuffed the skunk the black and white blended into an overall grey color
|I added a white mink stripe to the tail to give it a more skunk-like appearance.|
The basic tail was created from the chevron pattern in the crosscut mink coat.
|7 1/2 inches standing|
|I did not give this skunk my usual double jointed neck|
because I thought it would make the neck area too long
|I actually cut the pelt so there would be a white stripe down|
the back ... but when stuffed it became less obvious.
