Throughout a lot of last year I had many requests for a sloth plush <3 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!

Muito obrigada por ceder!!! Ele é muito fofo!!!!
What kind of fabric did you use for the gray sloth?
It’s one of the fabrics from the ‘Shaggy Cuddle’ line from Shannon Fabrics 🙂 Specifically the silver color: https://www.fabric.com/buy/0386407/shannon-minky-luxe-cuddle-shaggy-silver
Thank you, my niece loves sloths so I saved and also shared your website with her.
How much is the pattern. Please
It’s available for free 🙂 You can download it using the first of the three pictures at the bottom. Here’s a direct link as well: https://cholyknight.files.wordpress.com/2018/03/sloth-plush-sewing-pattern.pdf
Hi i cant download these, i really want a fox and sloth, unicorn and lamb one if you have them please x
Here are direct links to the .pdfs if that helps 🙂
I don’t have a lamb at this time, but many people use my alpaca pattern to make one:
I also don’t have a free unicorn pattern either, but I’ll consider it for the future!
I made my first sloth and it came out perfect thanks to the beautifully detailed instructions. I will say again, you are amazing
thank you, can’t wait to make one.
How do u make this half size?
Hello! You’d want to use the printer settings in Adobe Reader to print it at 50% size 🙂 I have a tutorial here that goes over it in more detail: https://cholyknight.com/2016/10/25/enlarging-reducing-pdf-plush-patterns/
I hope that helps!
Hi! I recently made this but I had trouble with the .pes file loading. It could be my embroidery machine because the .dst was too big for the frame. But, I’d like to make this again so any tips would be great.
Oh no! I’m sorry the files are causing you trouble :/ If you know your machine’s brand and model I may be able to export the files again with more customized parameters to your machine 🙂
Hi! Thanks for the response. I’m using a Brother 885-V51
I researched more about that model, and you might be right that the design is too big :/ I tried exporting it with the smallest hoop size I could: 18cm x 10cm. With any luck that might work! Here is a link to my personal storage where you can download them: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/69wxlckyyqqa4bq/AABwl-dInS2Qvaemx1dC81haa?dl=0
I’m having the same issue with my brother machine. Is there any thing I can do ?
I think you are an amazing lady, you have given clear instructions and the pattern pieces go together beautifully.
I take my hat off to you, for this pattern to be free is humbling, you have done a lot of work on it. Thank you so much, I am making a couple of these sloths next weekend, and looking forward to it.
Thank you so much for the kind words! I’m really glad you’re enjoying the pattern so far, and I hope your sloths come together well! 💖
This is awesome, thanks so much!!! I made this for my little cousin and she absolutely adores it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
I tried to download this patter and, though it did download it tells me it is a “protected view only pattern” and I cannot print it out. Any ideas?
If you were to open the .pdf with Adobe Reader that usually works for most people 😊 But if not do let me know and I can find another solution!
What’s the largest you have ever made one of your patterns? I really want to make a giant sloth for my cousin.
The largest I’ve made so far is one of my steampunk animals at 24″ tall 😊
This pattern is absolutely amazing. I made it for my mom and she absolutely loves it. Thank you so very much for this pattern.🦥
I’m making the sloth for a class of preschoolers who voted on a sloth. They requested it in a cute video (my daughter is the teacher). I bought silver minkee for the project, and can’t wait to make it for them. Thanks for making the pattern available for free!
You’re very welcome! I’m so glad the pattern will be helpful!
