Yellow Hug Me Slugalope stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingHug Me Slugalope wishes you a happy Easter! This yellow slug art toy with antlers already has a home, but I think I will make some more slugalopes!

Yellow Hug Me Slugalope stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingSomeone asked me to make one, and I thought it sounded like great fun. He is all made of soft fuzzy fleece. I think his antlers came out just right. I made them in one piece for stability.

The tag, which comes tied to the Hug Me Slugalope with a ribbon, can be personalized with a name or “For + a name” on the front, and there is room on the back of the tag for a message.

Dark purple, daffodil yellow, and orange fleece Hug Me Slugs, stuffed animal plush art toys

Dark Purple Hug Me Slug stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingI finished two more plushie 12 inch fleece Hug Me Slugs. I crawled into the garden, which I haven’t cleaned out yet, to get a more glamorous photo of this dark purple slug softie with our bright pink azaleas which are in bloom just in time for Easter.

Dark Purple Hug Me Slug stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingThis boy or girl has a magenta heart.

Daffodil yellow Hug Me Slug stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingI also have at the moment, three more 9 inch daffodil yellow fleece Hug Me Slugs, where you can pick out your own heart color. I’ve got them ready this time, so there isn’t a long wait, just a couple of days for me to add a heart and make a personalized hang tag for you.

Daffodil yellow Hug Me Slug stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingThis one has a cornflower blue heart. I was never able to get this exact color of blue again, and so at some point in the future, I’ll have to switch blues. Not to worry. I have so many colors I am sure I have another blue that will look nice with the yellow.

But in this case, I can add any color heart. I’m leaving that up to the adopter.

Orange Hug Me Slug stuffed animal art toy by Elizabeth RuffingThis orange 12 inch slug is also ready for adoption, at the time I am writing this post. He or she has a gold heart.

My stuffed animal art toys and dolls are over in my Etsy toy shop at hugmeslug.com so please come have a look.
