Throughout a lot of last year I had many requests for a sloth plush ❤ And I finally got the chance to make one! I had in my head the idea that it should have a round, bean-like body. But even more important than that, it should have Velcro in its claws so it can hang onto things! So in the end, I was so happy it worked out 😀 I had the prototype hanging in my work area all throughout the making of the pattern. My favorite part is that you can sew the head rotated so it looks like the sloth is turning to you while it hangs.
It has only 5 pattern pieces so it comes together really quickly. But I still rated it a 3/10 in difficulty because getting the neck seam is a little tricky because the arms are sooo long. But overall the pieces are very simple – I would have given it 2 stars if not for the neck.
And just like last month, this pattern also comes with the embroidery files needed for the face! The eye marking shape is slightly different to make it easier to stitch up, but for the most part it’s the same as the original. Do let me know if it gives you any problems so I can improve on future embroidery files!
