Item details

The Sloth pattern is 14" long

Three-toed sloths are slower than 2-toed, I'm told. They differ in the number of toes on the front feet; both have 3 toes on the back feet. Since sloths spend their lives hanging upside down, the fur lies from the toes to the back, so rain will run off. A long shag fur is most suitable, with a smooth fabric like velour for the face. Vinyl claws look most realistic, but felt is easier to sew. Some sloths have dark areas around the eyes, looking like a mask. Eyelids are optional, but make the animal look sleepy. It can hang from a branch or dowel or other fixture. I use clear fishline to sew through the toes and around the branch.

Aardvark to Zebra 's vintage (1980's) stuffed animal patterns are more realistic than cutsy. All pattern pieces were hand-drawn and labeled, with complete instructions, illustrated with hand-drawn construction diagrams. Pattern pieces are full size, printed on one side of !!"x 17" paper, ready to be cut out. Arrows, notches, dots and seam-lines are clearly printed, all referenced in the instructions, so making these animals is easy. There are no construction photos, but a color photo of the finished animal(s) is on the cover, as well as a line- drawing showing seam lines. Many of the patterns have variations, some with more than one animal or the same animal in different sizes. They are a real joy to make and own.
