This non-odoriferous version of the common striped skunk is designed to be made of medium weight fur for the body and shag fur for the stripes and tail. Realistic colors are black and white, but why not other colors, just for the fun of it. Skunks make nice pets, I'm told, but a stuffed skunk is nicest of all.
Aardvark to Zebra 's vintage (1980's) stuffed animal patterns are more realistic than cutsy. All pattern pieces were hand-drawn and labeled, with complete instructions, illustrated with hand-drawn construction diagrams. Pattern pieces are full size, printed on one side of !!"x 17" paper, ready to be cut out. Arrows, notches, dots and seam-lines are clearly printed, all referenced in the instructions, so making these animals is easy. There are no construction photos, but a color photo of the finished animal(s) is on the cover, as well as a line- drawing showing seam lines. Many of the patterns have variations, some with more than one animal or the same animal in different sizes. They are a real joy to make and own.
