Sleepy Sloth Hand Stitching Felt Kit


Sloths are not known for their dynamic energy, so what better way to present it than hanging? The optional sleep mask (based on the one worn by Holly GoLightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's) will help keep distractions to a minimum. :)

Each kit envelope contains step-by-step photo illustrated instructions, paper pattern pieces, sheets of wool blend felt, beads and notions, embroidery floss, needle and pins. I describe it as 

Confident Beginner, recommended for ages 12 and up. The techniques are simple but a few of the steps involve smaller pieces that require a bit of extra patience to assemble.

Finished Sleepy Sloth measure approx. 7" x 5" (18cm x 13cm).

Stuffing is not included as the finished piece is easy to stuff using scraps of felt or fabric cut into small bits, cotton balls as well as traditional stuffing. It also helps keep the shipping cost much lower as it can travel Canada Post letter mail.

These pieces are perfect as whimsical decorative pieces. They are not recommended for small children.
