Petunia skunk by Mary Jardin Wimberley Hi Everyone and thanks for viewing my skunk Pattern! She is my newest at the moment, which means she may be the most detailed as far as instructions, illustrations, pattern labeling, etc. But I wanted to make sure you know that she is a collectible soft sculpted animal intended for adults-not children. Also it will be helpful if you have some experience sewing and or making teddy bears. With this pattern, you will create Petunia Skunk who is a 7 ½” (18 cm) tall whimsical yet realistic soft sculpture mohair skunk! I studied baby skunks thoroughly and fell in love with their sweet faces and eventually came up with this easy to follow pattern. Each of my patterns offers different and in this case new techniques. This one features hand made claws and a sculpted nose both of which are optional. I also include other options like creating an embroidered nose, adding whiskers and creating eye whites behind the eyes. To make things easy, the ears are machine sewn into the head and eye dots are provided for you. There are 2 pages of pattern pieces in this 9 page pattern which are clearly marked with seam letters for easy match up, dots for cotter pin or bolt insertion, openings for turning, seam allowance, nap arrows, notches for eye placement and more. The pattern is easy to resize because I include the stitch line and disc outlines so as you shrink or enlarge the pattern and still see where to stitch and what size discs to use. 5 pages of illustrated directions will show you how to create leather eyelids, how to needle sculpt the face how to insert eyes without damaging the head back and more. A list of materials needed is provided as well as a collection of Skunk photos for your reference. This original 8 page pattern for 7 1/2” Petunia Skunk is designed to fit horizontally on 8.5” x 11” paper. Once printed, pages can be folded in half to fit into a zip lock bag for storage. By purchasing this pattern you agree to not sell or share this pattern. You may sell a skunk made from this pattern or a revised version as long as you mention it was made by Mary Wimberley of Mary’s Secret Garden. I have put many years of experience and many hours into the pattern so giving me credit helps me enormously. In fact share on Facebook if you if you feel so moved. ☺ Enjoy!
