What on earth is growing out of the top of this big Tree Sprite?! It's a Skunk Cabbage! The flowering spadix ball is covered in a brightly colored hood (spathe), and her large, bright green leaves are beginning to unfurl. This wetland plant is one of my favorite signs of spring.

She is made of brown fleece with a unique tree bark pattern stitched onto the body. The bright, spring green leaves are made from a subtly dyed cotton batik fabric, which is also used for the leaf nose. A brightly patterned batik was chosen to mimic the real life flowering structure of this awesome plant. If you peek inside the spathe, you can see the little embroidered knot flowers on the spadix!

The eyes are hard plastic with locking washers and she has a hand embroidered smile. She is filled with hypoallergenic polyfil and has plastic weighted stuffing beads in the limbs.

This large friend is about 20" sitting (the leaves alone measure 10").

It is a one of a kind creation - imagined, sketched, cut and sewn entirely by me with lots of love.

My creatures are made with a combination of sewing machine stitching and hand stitching, and are meant to hold up well to cuddles & gentle play. Not intended for babies or very young children. Spot clean only.

Thank you for supporting the arts!
