A darling sloth, just waiting for you to bring it to life!

Description

Sloths give the best cuddles!

Imagination can take you Anywhere!

It is difficult to resist the adorable face and clinging arms of a sloth! So snuggle in for a hug and feel your stress melt away! A variety of fabrics work well for this project, my favorite for optimum softness  and shape is 3mm smooth minky and Luxe Cuddle® 15-30mm pile ‘faux fur’ or a long pile faux fur. 

This sewing project is suitable for an adventurous confident beginner since there isn’t any complicated sewing for the easiest options and I walk you through each step with detailed instructions and photos to illustrate each step.  Your creativity is encouraged with variations to help you customize your stuffed animal. Variations can also help you plan for the skill level and time commitment of your project.

"I was excited and yet felt challenged to sew the Sluggish Sloth. I love all her patterns I have made and this was a dream project. There are so many options and I am eager to step up my game to learn from Rena to make such beautiful animals. I am a visual learner and need pictures or videos, and I found the pattern cutting process along with the sewing process to build the Sloth was well done. Rena created a mental picture of each step for me. This is a fabulous Sloth pattern that is outstanding and looks like the real amazing animal! Hands down - the best Sloth pattern I have seen and sewn! Thank you!"

"When a sewing pattern is this well written, the creating process becomes as much fun as gifting the finished product. Rustic Horseshoe patterns have steps that are simple to follow and explained in a way that a newbie can understand. The Sluggish Sloth delivered on ways to personalize the project and to up my skill level. I'm so tickled with how he turned out, 10 our of 10 would recommend!"

    As per usual, Rena has knocked it out of the park. Another wonderful pattern, well written enough for even a novice to work through. READ and follow the steps in order and you will have no issue creating a beautiful sloth for all the sloth lovers in your life.

  2. Connie S

    The Sluggish Sloth is another beautiful pattern from Rustic Horseshoe. This pattern includes multiple options with photos, making it a fun pattern for all skill levels. I chose the armature option, so my sloth could hang upside down. Rustic Horseshoe encourages people to be creative and provides many options to get you started! Enjoy.

  3. Jennifer Epp

    This pattern has detailed instructions and lots of pictures. There are a lot of options so make sure to read about them all! I used armature in the arms and legs of my sloth and love how it moves and hangs. A great project!

  4. Michelle Hall

    The Sluggish Sloth pattern by The Rustic Horseshoe has multiple levels from beginner to advance. The directions are well written with excellent photos, tutorials, and video instruction to help guide the sewist during the creative journey. I highly recommend this pattern to all who enjoy exploring options that produce spectacular one-of-a-kind projects.

  5. Elizabeth moore

    Absolutely love this pattern. What sets this pattern apart from so many other patterns is the realistic features. And the many options.
    Like the option to add armature in the legs and arms to make the sloth move . The neck option so the neck can move. The several toe options. Each of these options make the pattern unique to fit your desired look.

  6. Tracy Pitt

    Rustic Horseshoe’s patterns make the most cuddliest plushies ever. I had so much fun making this pattern, I ended up making 2.
    They are also designed with a variety of options to make.
    This adorable Sluggish Sloth also has the option of single or joined hands and feet and also a jointed head and armature. It has step by step instructions that are easy to follow for anyone to make by hand or with a machine.

  8. Patricia Barber

    This was such a fun pattern to make! There are several different ways to customize your Sloth. I chose the cluster claws, no armature and added magnets making it fairly simple. That is one of the things that makes Rena’s patterns so much fun. I also really enjoy having detailed and illustrated instructions.

  9. Andrea Nikolakis

    The Sluggish Sloth did not disappoint! This pattern is well written and gives you options enough that there is something for everyone. If you just have basic sewing skills – the directions are clear to follow, if you’d like to uplevel your skills, give the jointed head and/or armature a go. Rena has outdone herself y’all, you need to add this to your pattern collection today!

  10. Jennifer Roney

    Love this Sloth! He was a fun make and very realistic. He was so patient with me as we brought him to life. So many ways to customize; I can’t wait to make more! He’s so huggable, he’s sure to be a favorite for all ages!

    This sloth was SO fun to make! It looks like it would be really complicated, but don’t be deterred— the directions are super clear and walk you through each step! There are tons of ways to customize, confident beginner to advanced options, and ways to give your sloth personality. I’m never disappointed with Rustic Horseshoe’s patterns!

It is always a pleasure to sew one of Rena’s designs.
