Part of the "Love Me" plushie series, Stanley is a friendly little skunk (don't worry, he's descented) that would make an interesting valentine's day gift. Great for an animal lover, or if you want to say "Hey, you stink, but I love you anyway".

Stanley is made from black and white fleece, red felt, brown safety eyes and a pink safety nose. He is filled with polyfil to be nice and squishy.

He is 6" feet to ears, 9.5" feet to tail, and 16" nose to tail.

Stanley is a wonderful plushie hoping to spread some love.

(Not for children under 3 yrs)

(I didn't notice the pieces of fuzz stuck on his ear and back until I uploaded the pictures, he's totally fuzz free now!)

Frequently asked questions about PHYLAplush

Maybe! I take custom requests on a limited basis, and will announce on my shop page when they are available. Otherwise, I keep a Google Doc Suggestion Box, where you may write your request: http://tinyurl.com/PHYLAplushsuggestions I will not guarantee to make everything on the list, but I will use the list as I create more stock for the shop. If you provide your Etsy username (not required), I will contact you when your item is created, so you can have first dibs.
If you see that I am currently accepting custom orders, please use the Etsy "Request Custom Order" button in my shop to initiate a conversation. Be prepared with the name of the organism and your preferred size, color(s), and price range. After we discuss and agree upon a quote, I will create a custom listing you can purchase. After purchase, I will create your plushie. I will send a photo of the completed plush for your approval, and then ship.
My plushies are made with a combination of hand and machine stitching. They are not recommended for rough play, or as dog chew toys. However, they should hold up to regular, gently play or as an office decoration.

I have not tested their performance in a washing machine. Currently, I recommend spot cleaning only.
All plushies are wrapped in colorful tissue paper, and sealed in a bubble-lined poly mailer.
I have a few self-designed patterns I use for my most popular plushies, but most are created entirely free-form.
Sorry, but I will not give out any of my patterns. However, I draw my inspiration directly from nature, which is something that anyone can do!
Fleece fabric, felt fabric, polyfil stuffing, plastic safety eyes, thread, and satin tracking labels.
It was time for a change; Weird Bug Lady was a nickname of mine since high school. When I decided to restart my shop, I wanted a more inclusive name that truly represents my products. "Phyla" (multiple of "phylum") are higher level groupings of organisms. I am an evolutionary biologist, and use the tree of life as inspiration every day in both my professional and artistic endeavors. I hope to convey that there is beauty and wonder in all groups of organisms, regardless of phylum!

Love me - Stanley the Skunk
