Free Pattern Friday! Sloth Plush


Hi everybody!
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!

P.S. If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes work on the making of this plush, check out my Patreon! For just $1 a month, subscribers get behind-the-scenes posts and all of my free patterns 1 week early! And you have access to the posts from last month’s Love Dragon pattern to check if you like what you see!

    By the way, where did you found the fabric for the grey sloth? What is the name of this type of fabric?
    Thanks 🙂

  16. It’s cute !!!
    As your can make every animal super cute (even jelly fish !), won’t you try to create a turtle pattern ? It could very fun ^_^
    And thank for all your free pattern, they are really great and make nice birth gifts for my friends babies ; )

  17. Unfortunately I don’t have an embroidery machine so from now on your patterns will be hard for me to sew… 😦
    Could you please also add applique files as well as embroidery files? Thanks so much!

    • This pattern still has applique templates — the gray one and mint green one are done with applique as examples 🙂 All the future patterns will still have applique too! I still personally prefer applique over embroidery so that will always be an option.

  18. So excited to make this. A plush sloth pattern is something of a need in my life =^_^=

  19. I made your sloth, gave it to my son for his birthday. He LOVED it. We loved the show Zootopia (Deloris, Deloris, Deloris! What do you call a camel with 3 humps??) haha

    Anyway, AWESOME pattern!! Thanks again!
