i thought about it for a while. i looked at lots of photos of skunks. i learnt some things (i though they had a solid white stripe along their back, they don’t). i drew a pattern. found some material from my stash – an old top of mine from h&m that shrunk after the first wear. also some cream brushed cotton left over from the baby pillow. i made some pom poms from chunky wool. kept it very simple – this is a rare two legged variety!
