To see a sloth is to love a sloth. In the wild they use their strong limbs to slowly clamber around trees in a calm and lackadaisical way snacking on buds and tender fruits. They mean no harm and cause no harm. An ideology more of us could benefit from perhaps? Our little Sigmund is a soft and gentle soul who spends his days hanging around gazing into the world and watching it pass at a pace that he can only dream of. Sloths live in a world of serene peace where every moment is a gift to be lingered over and enjoyed.
This little guy comes together best when made using a medium to low pile faux fur with a supple backing fabric. All pattern pieces print to standard Australian A4 size paper so no cutting and sticking is involved to make templates. His finished size is approx. 42cm from the top of his head to the tips of his toes. The only hand stitches used are running and ladder stitches.
Sigmund is made using glass teddy bear eyes. Full supervision should be given to children to whom small parts may pose a choking hazzard while they play with Sigmund softies.
Please note that as I'm an Australian designer. All measurements will be given using the metric system.
I go to every length to provide detailed and easily understood written instructions. Sigmund will be a satisfying addition to a seasoned toy makers repertoire or a happy challenge to those just dipping their toes in the world of toy making. If you do find you need a little help with Sigmund as you're sewing him together you can always email me jenny [!at] frazzydazzles.com and I'll do my best to answer any of your questions.
While I'm happy for you as the purchaser to make Sigmund and sell your work on a small scale such through a market I do ask that all labeling and marketing material identify myself and or Frazzy Dazzles as the original designer. The copying of and or re-selling/re-distribution of this pattern either in paper or digital form just isn't very nice...
Thank you for looking at my gentle little guy. If you like my designs you might like to follow my Frazzy Dazzles page of Facebook and Instagram. That's where I share all new and emerging designs first.
