Who doesn't love a manatee? These sea cows are gentle, rotund creatures full of sweetness. How can you resist a chubby body and face like this? Even its floppy tail and flippers have just the right amount of squish--perfect for hanging out on your bed or around your house.

This manatee would make a great birthday gift for a friend who believes (like me!) that you're never too old to love stuffed animals, or a sweet baby shower gift to complete a nursery.

Created from my own pattern, this manatee is sewn from high-quality 100% organic cotton fabric. It is stuffed firmly with soft, smooth polyester fiberfill to eliminate lumps and bumps and keep its shape. It's also machine-sewn with polyester thread for strength and finished by hand. The stacked button eyes are sewn on with sturdy cotton quilting thread to ensure this manatee sees above and below the surface!

This listing is for the manatee in the top four photos only.

SOFTIE SAFETY: I consider my softies to be soft sculptures, not toys. While I take pride in my craftsmanship and believe my work will withstand normal wear and tear, my softies are not intended for children under 12. I am happy to swap out button eyes for felt ones if you prefer.

CARE: Yes, it's washable! Softie fabric has been washed prior to use. If your softie needs a cleaning, please wash gently and air dry.

ALLERGIES: I craft in a small apartment that is smoke-free but cat-friendly--I *am* Kitty Kitty Crafts, after all! I do my best to keep my cat from "helping" me too much, but if you're extremely sensitive to pet dander, please keep this in mind. All of my work is washable, and I'm happy to give your purchase a quick launder before shipping if you'd like--please just let me know!
