Hug 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!
Someone 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.
I made a special hang tag with antlers just for the Hug Me Slugalope! 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.
My available stuffed animal art toys and dolls in my Etsy toy shop at hugmeslug.com and I am still trying to get stocked up!
Vanda is a handmade miniature original, one-of-a-kind cat art doll, hand painted and hand sculpted in paperclay by artist Max Bailey.
Vanda is a tabby and white Norwegian Forest kitten. Her soulful eyes are gold with a touch of green, and she has a little pink nose. Vanda’s fur is long and luxurious and very beautiful.
It is her loving heart and sweet personality that make Vanda so endearing, and even more beautiful.
Vanda is content to sit in her rose-flowered upholstered chair. It is her favorite chair, and comes with her.
Vanda’s coat dress is forest green. It has a large pink notched collar and pink cuffs, which are bordered in paler green.
Vanda is a one-of-a-kind work of art, and is meant for display only. She was sculpted from paperclay in multiple stages, to allow for drying and detailing.
Vanda was painted under a magnifying light, with tiny brushes, one hair at a time.
She is signed and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation, and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Vanda is 1:12 scale. (One inch equals one foot.) She is 1 and 3/4 inches tall.
Update: Vanda has been adopted. Thank you!
Vanda’s friend is Gretchen the black-and-white Persian kitten.
I 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.
This boy or girl has a magenta heart.
I 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.
This 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.
This 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.
I finished a 12 inch honeydew green fleece Hug Me Slug today.
He (or she) has a bright red heart and a soft yellow, red, and green geometric cotton print fabric on the bottom.
